The reason we know there is a God, is because we KNOW there is a devil. He lives in the world and plies his evils. The evidence is overwhelming to his existance. How then can one deny that there is a goodness as well. It seems more distant at times than the evils but that is because this is not our home, it is the devils; we do not belong on earth forever. We were sent here to learn Love and beauty; to understand the fortune of these occurances; that is only accessed through freedom and specifically freedom of will. Let me explain, something that is beauty, art, people, nature; a rose, comes into this world, is created by a random occurance of chances that work; seeds are scattered, some take; the rain may come, it might be in a drought; but a rose finds its fortune, and blooms into its glorious existance. As well as we are all some random event of fortune; our creation is the most random and fortunate of all. What it took for the seeds to have scattered in such a way that they would have grown. What it took for the organisms to form to create us. What amazing feats would have played in the cells organizing to create something that could breathe the air, survive the elements and grow to be something that could one day do so much more. Yet we are here. This is not an adaptation; we are something out of nothing; this is the randomness of a perfect plan; this is God's creation. We were given free will because that is what Gods beauty is about. The choices we make resulting in a randomness of events that end in the eventuality of a creation of pure beauty. Like planting a rose, or sculpting a statue, singing a song of praise, or making a baby. Please understand that the beauty cannot be perfect on earth. Always keep in mind he made earth as our classroom, so that one day we could be brought back to him and show him what we learned of beauty by singing our songs of praise.
P.S. To the baby angels please help the rest of us remember to be grateful.
