Question of the week: Why didn’t God create all humans to be Christians?
My answer: God wanted beings that would love him. Love is possible only among free-will beings. Hence, God created us with the freedom to choose who we want to relate to. We all get to choose whether we want to spend eternity in a relationship with God or without God.
God could have gotten a larger percentage of humans, even close to 100%, to become Christians simply by endowing us with weak free will. However, weak free will means we would be limited in the degree of love we could express to others and the degree of love we could receive from others. God’s goal was for as many humans as possible to experience strong love. For strong love to be possible we must possess strong free will.
