If God is perfect, then why didn’t He just make us perfect and do away with sin all together?
The perfect creation
Question: If God is perfect, then why didn’t He just make us perfect and do away with sin all together?
To ask this question would imply that you have no idea what true love is. If God did away with free will He too would do away with true love in place of programmed love. You can program a computer to say “I love you”, but can it really mean it? Of course not. The point most of us are missing is that this is only a small part of a larger picture. God did make a perfect creation, and if we don’t stop trying to justify our lifestyles by denying God’s existence, then we are going to miss what God has planned. It’s never been put into words better than, “If you love something let it go, and if it comes back to you, it’s yours.” God let us go in this creation and if we come back to Him, we are His, and those who don’t will be forever lost. Those of us who do, will see perfection.
