Indeed, although I do detect sarcasm and cynicism and unbelief in your comment....
Have you asked Him for help or just look at the wasteland mankind and sin has established with all of its horror and suffering and blame God?
You see, the Believer in Jesus has a hope and a future ( and even if we are all sadly mistaken, its better to live with hope than without....).
I understand, sorry for your loss. I suggest personally reading the Bible, it helped me immensely in understanding questions that were not answered in religious retreats.
Saved my faith, I understand much more now.
Define imperfection. A people of robots without the ability to sin would not have the ability to choose. Which means they would not have the ability to love.
Not perfect. As in flawed.
Ok, what is the flaw?
Name ONE perfect human.
Who says God ever wanted a s perfect human? Humans are exactly what God designed them to be.
You are defining perfection from your perspective not Gods.
“Who says God ever wanted a s perfect human? Humans are exactly what God designed them to be.”
Sounds like you are now admitting God created imperfect humans.
“You are defining perfection from your perspective not Gods.”
How do you know that?
“Who says God ever wanted a s perfect human? “
Then why create humans knowing he would have to send fire and water to destroy them?
Because that that plan from the beginning. Its not like Jesus was plan B.
If we could could figure out why God does everything he does he wouldnt be much of a God. He certainly wouldnt be eternal or omniscient.
My faith is strong. The most difficult challenges it faces is from many of my “Christian” friends.
You got that right!
But then, instead of “the great revival” the Bible speaks of the great apostasy. Like Jesus said, “when I return, will I find faith?”
The biblical kind is getting pretty rare...
Blessings on you, and yours.
“Because that that plan from the beginning. “
How do you know what God’s plan is?
I know because scripture tells me - at least as much of it as we are meant to know.
