Summary: This sermon attempts to answer a difficult question about why did God create us anyway.
Why Did You Create Us If…
Dear God letters
God, are you that cruel?
1. Why create if You knew we would sin?
Understand 2 things
a. God is relational
Gen. 1:26 & angels
We do crazy things for love
But you can’t force a relationship
b. God wanted us to choose to love Him
You can’t love without free will
Js. 24:15; Mk. 8:34; Rev. 3:15, 16; 22:17
Free will brings the potential for disaster
But also to save the world
Leads to our 2nd question
2. Why create us if we will suffer?
If You are so good, why is there evil?
Why do we ask this?
We want someone to blame
We usually pick God
But what really causes it?
Adam & Eve--suffering became reality
Free will brings the potential for good and bad
Without it, there’s no love
But God isn’t cruel
He became man
God is actually in love with you
That’s why Jesus came
I had kids even though I knew they would mess up
I also allow them to hurt in order to grow
God is either trying to teach you something
Or your sin has done it to you
God loves you
