Why Did God Create All This

Why didn't God create the perfect world with perfect people so we could just be happy, loving God? God knew about Adam and Eve's sin before it even happened so why did He create it all?

Moderator - Because he gave mankind a freewill and didn't make us robots.

Adam and Eve were in a state of undeveloped innocence--"very good", not perfect and complete--and were to GROW into perfection.

Their fall short-circuited the process.

God is not the author of evil.

Maybe Yahweh was lonely, so he created more in his image. If Heylel was never created, no one would really know what love was. God loved the world so much, he gave a blood sacrifice. And Yahshua was his name.

ts, when you reach the point where you walk in spiritual truth, in complete submission to God and his word, questions are usually the flesh rearing its ugly head.AND as I have said it is usually a complaint not a question.But AS USUAL THE FLESH CAN,T TELL THE DIFFERENCE MOST OF THE TIME.

ts, while that may be true to a point my post wasn,t a reflection of other people it was personal for me.I learned long ago when I questioned God the truth of the circumstance wasn,t really a question. As with most who say it,s ok to question God, when 99 percent of the time what they are really doing is complaing to God not questioning him.

Beautiful Donna. Again you show your heart is filled with sensitivity and compassion for others. You have a way of articulating your thoughts in a way that is easily understood and relevant. Bless you

Sue--Can you always explain to your children "why" you ask of them all that you do? You want their happiness, but "happiness" isn't everything. YOU know that not everything they think will make them happy, actually will. If they insist on doing something dangerous you may even have to punish them. Hopefully, they won't have to SEE everything you warn of. They just need to TRUST you. I don't know much about Hell (wouldn't use it myself to scare kids).I just trust a child.

I think I'd rather be a robot than to go to hell. I am having a problem with this. I would never tell my kids that they had to believe something that they couldn't see or even understand or they would be punished FOREVER by being burned.

God wanted a bunch of people to worship him in spirit and in truth. He didn't want robots who does what God says. God wants people to praise and worship him from the depts of our heart, and to do this freely. Our will should be to worship and praise him, that is why he didn't create us to be perfect. If we were perfect, we wouldn't know how to love, or know faith, we wouldn't learn to grow through our trials, or learn to forgive, or learn to lean on him through the hard times.

I echo the Moderator. God created Satan, but he did not create sin. God created Heylel a most beautiful angel in paradise, but he wanted to take over the Creator's throne. So he conspired and persuaded 1/3 of the angels in heaven to start rebellion against God. He went to the weaker vessel and persuaded her to disobey God. And thereby came the human's along with Heylel's and his angel's fall from God's glory.

If you remember, there was a time when God was sorry he ever created man, so he wiped the slate clean and Noah and his family became "Adam", to start all over again. Personally, I can't understand why God hasn't done that at least a dozen times since then, as wicked as this world is and has been in times past. And, food for thought Tom2: It is not wrong to question God, if we do it in the right manor- Jesus himself questioned him while hanging on the cross

God wants man to freely go to Him and to freely love Him -- that is why God gave man a freewill. If we HAD to love God, then it would not be real, it would be a burden.
---Helen_5378 on 6/15/06

Love the Father and trust Him. He loves you and has a perfect plan for those that love trust and honor Him. Farther along we will know about it, farther along we understand why, cheer up my brother and live in the Son. By and by when the morning comes all the saints of God will be gathering home, we will tell the story of how we have overcome and understand it better by in by.

I started to answer this question however by the Fathers lead I will not at this time. I give you this Isa. 45:9 "Woe unto him that striveth (hold a controversy) with his Maker! Let the potsherd (mortal man) strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work (Maker), He hath no hands (power, means or direction)? Woe unto him that saith unto his father, what begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?" Cont.

I learned along time ago not to question God,his ways are beyond us.better to remember the promises in his word than the affects created by mans sin.
---tom2 on 6/15/06

Well certainly what we have today isn,t what God,s sin has cursed the earth. CURSED IS THE GROUND FOR YOUR SAKE.thats what God said to adam.I agree free will has made a mess of things.but thats part of Gods plan.
---tom2 on 6/15/06

God wanted us to love him of our own free will. Would you be happy if I made you love me? Would you be happy if you were forced to love your spouce? Would you be happy if you had to make your children love you?
