In response to the many posts: I don't know why you would consider God crazy for creating man knowing he would sin. The greatest thing in the world is LOVE. That is why he created us. That's like saying, if you knew your children were going to rebel against you, would you not have them? That's ridiculous. You have children to love and to be loved. This is the reason God created the world and man, because it was good and so that he could love and be loved in return. Of course he knew we would rebel. But it was only another opportunity to express his love for us. By sending down Christ, the Son of God, God incarnate to be humiliated, betrayed and suffer so that we would be seen as perfect as long as we accepted that sacrifice. Now we are allowed as imperfect humans to have a relationship with the perfect and Almighty God. It is all about LOVE.
First, welcome to the forum. Your post is beautifully worded and shows the glow of innate wisdom. However, if we take your Biblical explanation of things to it's conclusion, in the end most of your gods children will be killed, or eternally punished by his hand. This, is clearly not love, but rather it's antithesis. As humans, we lock people away in prisons for the criminally insane for such acts; and rightly so. Is the true Source of the universe "criminally insane", or is it far more likely the minds drastically limited interpretations and ideas of God that are at fault? Perhaps if we stop feeding ourselves with extremely diminutive ideas of a god, as presented in much of the Bible, and instead shift our attention into the innate and warm sense of love within our own being, we may discover what has no limits, no beginning or end; and we may just awaken to Love truly unconditional and pristine. j
