Hi there, folks
I’ve got something for us to think about. I’m interested what’s your take on this. Actually, I’ve never heard this one before. I think there must have been people that dealt with this, but I came across this the first time myself.
Here it goes:
- God had no other chance but to create us with free will if he was to create beings capable of love
- There are some people, however, that freely choose to go against God’s will and end up in hell.
- In heaven, being in the state of beatific vision, we would still have our free will and yet incapable of commiting a sin.
Why then couldn’t God create us ALREADY in the state of beatific vision where we would be completely free, completely loving and loved by God and others and incapable of sin and therefore having no one ending up in hell?
I’m aware I have a very very limited reasoning, but isn’t everyone being with God something “better” than only one created person ending up in hell?
Where’s the rub in this reasoning?
PS: I know there might be some people here disproving the premises (e.g. with Calvinist beliefs)
