Why Does God Create Sinners?
Dear Brother Ron
Why does God create beings He knows will sin and go to hell? What do you
believers feel about this? Don't say free will either because I am sure you
don't let children play with fire or poison to let them express their free
Dear Andy E
The word sin is (believe it or not) an archaic archery term. It means to
miss the target. Your problem is you don't believe in a god who condemns
people to eternal torment for making mistakes. You are right. We all make
mistakes. It's part of the learning experience. Our Father knows about them
before we are born and forgives us before we commit them.
You call yourself an atheist, yet you acknowledge a God who exists beyond
our concept of space and time. I feel you just do not accept the limited
definition of God advocated by most religious organizations. You are
correct. God is much bigger than most churches say He is. Unfortunately,
most people are not looking for the whole truth. They simply want a
15-second sound bite. The church, being a good marketing organization, gives
them what they want. You are one of those rare individuals who wants a meal,
not a snack.
Keep asking questions. It's the only way you are going to grow into the
person our Father wants you to be.
