Dear Almighty Creator,
The Christians tell
me that You know all, that You have always known all, and that You
will always know everything, all the time. I believe the word that
they used is "omniscient". Being omniscient as You are, I'd like
to know something. You remember all that stuff about the original
sin and the war with Satan and the fruit and such? Most of us down
here on Earth aren't really happy about all that, and we would like
to know why you didn't just prevent it from ever happening?
Oh, and they also tell
me that You are "omnipotent", so I guess that means that You can
do anything just by snapping Your fingers, or whatever it is that
You do. So, just curious here, why did You go to all the trouble
of having Your Holy Son put to death to save us from Hell when You
could have snapped your fingers and said "Hey, you're all saved
now. Praise me!"
Just curious and all.
Oh, and Amen, too.
