There’s a common enough question that atheists will ask us: why doesn’t God just appear before us and tell us what to do?
The answer usually goes something like “God doesn’t want to force us to believe, he wants us to have free will, and if he were to just appear and do miraculous things, no one would have that free will.”
Firstly, correct me if I have this paraphrase of the question and the reply wrong. That’s how I understand it now and that’s the basis for my question.
My question is, "why does God care of we know of him or not? What is so special about belief despite proof? The angels certainly knew of God, and some of them still rejected him. Adam and Eve also knew God… they walked with him, and still fell to temptation. So why are we, living now, any different?
