Why wasn’t the “Original Creation” made the same as the New Creation?
Answer: Because we can learn VIRTUE in an imperfect and God organized chaotic world through our sufferings and our tribulations.
Our struggle/ tribulation is the cost which in-prints the virtue, nobility and at the end perfection into our souls.
310 But why did God not create a world so perfect that no evil could exist in it?
With infinite power God could always create something better.
But with infinite wisdom and goodness God freely willed to create a world in a state of journeying towards its ultimate perfection.
With physical good there exists also physical evil as long as creation has not reached perfection.
302 The universe was created in a state of journeying (in statu viae) toward an ultimate perfection yet to be attained, to which God has destined it.
God protects and governs all things which he has made.
307 God thus enables men to be intelligent and free, causes in order to complete the work of creation, to perfect its harmony for their own good and that of their neighbors.
Though often unconscious collaborators with God’s will, they can also enter deliberately into the divine plan by their actions.
308 The truth that God is at work in all the actions of his creatures is inseparable from faith in God the Creator.
God is the first cause who operates in and through secondary causes: For God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
311 For almighty God. . ., because he is supremely good, would never allow any evil whatsoever to exist in his works if he were not so all-powerful and good as to cause good to emerge from evil itself.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA Divine Providence explains.
He directs all, even evil and sin itself, to the final end for which the universe was created.
Evil He converts into good and suffering He uses as an instrument whereby to train men up as a father traineth up his child
Nor would God permit evil at all, unless He could draw good out of evil (St. Augustine, Enchir, xi in P.L. LX, 236; Serm.
2022 The divine initiative in the work of grace PRECEDES, PREPARES, and ELICITS the free response of man.
God effects everything, the willing and the achievement. … (Thomas Aquinas, S. Th.II/II 4, 4 ad 3).
1058 The Church prays that no one should be lost: … it is true that God desires all men to be saved" ( 1 Tim 2:4), and that for him all things are possible ( Mt 19:26).
The Holy Spirit would not inspire the Church to pray for the salvation of everyone if it would be not possible.
412 But why did God not prevent the first man from sinning?
God permits evil in order to draw forth some greater good.
Thus St. Paul says, 'Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more’; and the Exsultet sings, 'O happy fault,. . . which gained for us so great a Redeemer!
