    Has God made earth a far less than perfect place on purpose?

    Did you ever travel from point A; (perhaps your home-town) to point B some (other) beautiful and wonderful place; yet, have to spend some time between point A and point B (a less friendly place); perhaps to get something accomplished before travelling on to point B? I contemplate that perhaps God has made earth (a far less than perfect place on purpose) our intermediate stop to accomplish something before we get to our final destination. What say you?

    GOD created the world perfectly...man has since destroyed it. if man had not rejected GOD and HIS laws it would still be perfect. that being said...to everything there is a reason...and a season.  nothing happens without HIS knowing it or HIS permission. there is a plan in place and all must come to pass.

    Our Creator has made a perfect world for us to live in.We are responsible for there not being perfection and we are an ongoing project that needs much improvement. The earth and all of its glory is our birth place and we were not meant to misuse or abuse the wonders of nature provided for us. Of all the planets in the solar system, this one is designed to provide an ever lasting life. This world was made to be very unique and one in billions of others in the universe. We are the less than perfect entity upon this planet.

    I need to know whose version of perfection you are going by. My version has me laying on the beach doing nothing except relaxing. Only friends are allowed near me and no one bothers me.  We would all be peaceful and there would be no worries.

    The reality is if you believe in God, then God does as God pleases. We just have to accept that fact and humbly do the best we can because what we can control is minute relative to the great and grand cosmos.

    What is perfect for God is not necessarily perfect in my limited perspective.

    What is good for the duck hunter is not good for the duck.

    Perfection within the physical realm is a relative thing, but God is absolute and perfection in His realm is likewise absolute.

    Look at it from a different perspective: If you drop your cup and it breaks, you will find in all the universe no other cup that is as perfectly that cup broken.

    God gave us free will. We can choose perfectly or we can choose to muck it up.
