Soul-Making
30 September 2011
- the Earth is meant to develop our souls to go we go to Heaven
- if there was no evil, we wouldn’t need to have these tests
- evil is went to teach us what is right and what is wrong, but we don’t always learn
(Holocaust = Neo-Nazis)
- there should be no point because God knows that we are gonna do, but we have free-
will
Our World:
- laws of nature
- consequences
- God made a world is to develop moral virtues (to make us enlightened)
- taught to learn perfection
- imperfect (Adam and Eve were never perfect)
- struggle (without it, it is impossible to create virtues)
A world that maximizes pleasure:
- no laws of nature
- no progression
- no consequences
- people are born perfect
