    Carlos, our thread has been locked again, so am sending my comment as a New one. Trust you saw my other comments sent in a similar way (over a day ago).

    "I don't mean to diminish the fact God deserves and gets Glory, Exaltation, etc." Sorry, your statement confused me as you say that God deserves our praise & love, yet in your comment to Adam you mentioned that He doesn't need it. If He doesn't need it, then I wonder, in your understanding, what does God do with all the praise, worship & love that goes up to Him. In human terms, if I am given something but feel that I don't need it (i.e. consider it of little use to me & therefore it's either shelved or given away to someone who might make better use of it), would that be similar to what you're thinking? If so, then is God one Who receives these offerings, but since they don't affect Him in any way, He remains unmoved by them? Or, maybe you mean that any offerings coming to Him doesn't affect His Character in any way & Who He is.

    "What I would like to get at is what the Bible reveals about What God created us for in that Love. There's a persistent question people ask. That is, if God, why evil? Perhaps this is too philosophical, but it is important. Why does evil exist, if God is Love? The notion that we have Choice or Free Will, isn't enough." I can't add anymore to what has already been said to, "why did God, in His Love, create us?" I realize that your understanding that we were the means for His Son to enter the world & give his life for us, & there is truth there, but why indeed were we created.
