Question 1: Why were we put on Earth instead of just staying in heaven? We could have just skipped the arduous step of living down here- at which some of us fail so miserably.
Question 2: Why on earth weren’t we given any concrete proof of who God is and what He is like?
Maybe being on Earth is the only way for us to prove and practice faith, because, unlike heaven, the mysteries of God are hidden here! And maybe faith is one of the many qualities he needs us to have to be fully mature some day.
1 Corinth 13:13: “Three things will last forever-faith, hope, and love. . . ” It seems pretty important we gain faith if it will last forever!
