This is a question I have been pondering for a long time. One answer is love. God loves us deeply more than we can understand.
There was nothing in the beginning, no human, not a single person.
Then we were created. From the beginning God knows who will follow Him, who won’t. That means when Adam was created, God knew there would be people sinking into hell and suffer forever, as the same time, those who believe will share the glory with Him to eternity.
I wish this logic is wrong and someone can correct it.
You may say God is just, the price for sin is death. My point is if there was no human being created in the first place, nothing would happen.
Of course you can argue we are the clay, whatever the pottery do to the clay, clay cannot have a choice. But isn’t free will the most precious gift from God?
I just don’t understand the suffering, especially the eternal suffering, it is unbearable and hopeless. I wish everyone can go to heaven, but it is impossible, isn’t it?
Maybe some day in the future, when I read what I had written today and laugh at the zero faith by me. I wish that day can come sooner.
God, please help.
