Problems with Heaven

Problems with Heaven: Free Will and Evil

Re: you are dumb!!!

You didn't answer my question... WHY would a god design us to be *scared*, *rattled* and *crack up* if we saw it? Why would a god design us to have that reaction?


Also, you admit that God can appear and simply choose *not* to cause these affects.


So... if God wants people to know that it exists (or if God is going to judge us according to our learned knowledge of the world), why wouldn't God give us the facts? Without the facts, how can we choose? If it DOESN'T MATTER if we believe in God or not (maybe, you know, our moral choices are more important than our accumulated knowledge), then God might not show itself.

We're Designed in his own Image, we carry all his traits and free to use them as choices and reactions. We're objects of God love. Now to be an object of love, what does the giver expect in return? Love, and that's why He made the human race. Angels couldn't respond, and so He made the human race with that indwelling attribute of will to either respond to His love or to reject it. And so that's why He had to bring Satan on the scene so we could exercise that choice, otherwise there would be no will exercised. So the whole program of the human race was that God could have prepared people to fellowship with. And to return or extend His love to them that had responded of their own free will to His love. And that's why we are here, and that's why the vast majority of mankind are given the free option to reject it if they want to. Remember, God doesn't want someone in His Heaven if they can't respond to His love. But to those who respond to His love, He's prepared things like what Paul says:

I Corinthians 2:9

"But as it is written, `Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.'"




Re: you are dumb!!!

You still didn't answer... we are not completely in God's image because god is all-knowing, omnipresent, perfectly good, has no gender, no hormones, no biochemistry, etc: there are vast differences between us and god. Undeniable differences. Why, when God designed us, did it design us to have such a terrible reaction to mere sight of God? And, as you say, if God can appear without causing these affects to occur, why doesn't it?

All your reiterated stuff about "objects of love" was a completely different subject. Reply to the question, start a new thread, but any more unrelated crap and I'm logging you as a brainless spammer.
