    Some people will say that it is our fault that we are sinners, not God...yet they believe in an infallible God....kind of illogical don't ya think? If he is all knowing, then he would have known that we would sin and be imperfect and thus changed our nature if he had WANTED us to be perfect.

    Hmm...I don't consider myself a very religious person now...but I asked this exact same question during my 4 years of Christian schooling...basically God does not want "robots" worshipping him...he wants free thinking men and women to make the choice to worship him...if we were all perfect we would all worship God. By giving us the ability to decide whether or not to chose the path of God...we are also given the ability to sin. Hope this helps :)

    God doesn't expect us to be perfect. He doesn't want us to lie, cheat, and steal, but that's nothing compared to God. We are imperfect sinners because Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. If it wasn't for that, then we would be perfect and there wouldn't be any evil in the world.

    According to the bible, the Lord did make us perfect, but He gave us freewill, by putting the tree of good and evil there He gave us choice. Adam and Eve eat from the fruit and that was the beginning of our sinful nature and then we were no longer perfect. God commanded them not to, but they did not obey Him and now therefore we have to live in this fallen world, and in a sinful state. However, God had mercy on us sinners and when you believe in Him you become cleansed by the blood of Jesus, God gave His only beggoten Son Jesus so that whosoever believe in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life. He died so that we can live.

    Read Genesis Chapter 2-3 life for humans was pretty messed up after Adam and Eve ate from that garden when God told them not to, not because of God but because of the human nature. God is only believing in us, believing that one day maybe three nations can be saved not one. He gave us freedom of thought, and all he want us to do is to Remember him

    God didnt make us sinners, he gave us free will. its inevitable that you will be a sinner. God doesn't want you to be perfect, but if you love Him as much as He loves you, you wouldn't want to do ugly sinful things. God is pretty generous because 1) he gave us free will and 2) he gave us a way to still get into heaven - Jesus.

    Christian answer, to the best of my knowledge:

    God made human beings with free will, and they chose sin/God forgives sins because of Christ's death/God wants us to love him because He loves us and it is the only way for us to have a truly fulfilling existence, since all good comes from God and therefore turning away from God cuts us off from it.

    Humanist answer: we aren't sinful.

    He also gave us free will, to choose wither we would like to worship the devil or him. Personally, I think free will, is a big joke. Temptation is the things he uses to tell him who we would like to worship. Although he did create us, in his image then it's like the Garden of Eden, if we choose the fruit then we lose the prize if we don't pay it any mind and ignore the snake, we win. I don't know what I'm saying here, but I hope you understand. He wants us to be perfect and not sin, so we would choose him, but I tell you, if he would tax everything that was good, I would of course throw a fight, but in the end I would pay for it all.

    He doesn't. Sin is like a cancer and quickly spreads throughout an entire civilization. We have the capacity to know good and evil. God didn't have to ingrain it in us.

    Besides, good cannot exist without evil. There would be no adventure, laughter, or beauty without imperfection.

    God doesn't want you the be perfect. God wants proof that you love Him by giving up your humanistic ways. In short, He wants you to deny your human nature. Why do you think suffering is stressed as an importance, in Christianity?

    (Btw, you didn't hear this from a Christian.)

    But of course.

    If you go straight creationism, God created the world. There's no why, so I just assume its because he wanted to watch what happened.

    6 billion people being incredibly perfect would NOT be fun to watch.
