    Question 10

    If God is perfect, why did He create us humans, who are imperfect?

    So we humans would lean on him to forgive us because all of us are sinners and if we all were perfect we wouldnt relay on him.

    Atheists label Christianity as a crutch. Ruben's reply makes people think that God created us so that we use Him as a crutch our whole life. Once we get deceived like that, then we're cripples our entire life and people look at us and go "yup, just another Christian."

    Christ didn't call us to be cripples, but overcomers. He said He overcame the world. So if we wanna be like Christ, we must also overcome the world.
    Who can stand against us if Christ is for us? Who can intimidate us, if Christ isn't intimidated.

    Life more abundantly is what we're given in Jesus Christ alone. If we don't seek that, then we become a bunch of people who lean on Christianity for a crutch.

    With that being said, Adam was created perfect, but as soon as sin entered the world; we're born sinful in this sinful world. God's presense became distant b/c He can't even stand the sight of sin. Thus, Christ (unfairly) came to die for our sins (as the perfect sacrifice for sin, which is death) so that we can become perfect. Born imperfect, given perfection through Jesus.
