I wasn't aware that I was avoiding any questions. I seem to post more than anyone else. To the point it probably annoys 90% of the audience.<quoted text>No please, this is fascinating. I await to hear why it matters what we did before we were born if we have zero knowledge of it? Do you keep avoiding my questions because your feelings are hurt or because you have no good answers?
Ok. Lets start over.
We are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. We lived with Him before coming here. We learned talents, developed personalities, etc. If you have more than 1 child, this would explain why they have completely different personalities that are noticeable all the way back to birth.
Just as puppies grow up to be dogs and kittens grow up to be cats, we are meant to grow up to be like Him.
So He developed a plan for this progression to continue. We could only progress so far without gaining a physical body. And we needed to learn things on our own too. So He told us of His plan: we will come to earth and gain a physical body. We will have our faith in Him tested by a veil over our remembrance of our time with Him. We would have freedom to chose our actions. Out of His presence, He knew sin would eventually enter the equation and then we would not be able to return home to live with Him. So a savior would be necessary to atone for those sins against righteousness. Jesus said to send Him. He would atone for those sins and make it possible to return and glorify God. He would let us have our free agency and thus realizing some may choose poorly.
Lucifer said to send him and he would strip is of free agency and force us to choose good. Then no one would be lost to sin. But since he would make this happen, he wanted the glory for himself and to dethrone the Father. This was the war in heaven as described in Revelations.
The Father chose the first and Lucifer rebelled. Many liked the idea that none would be lost so they sided with Lucifer. They rebelled against God and were cast out of heaven and lost their first estate.
You are here today because you chose to not follow Lucifer. Whether you actively chose Jesus, or you were a fence sitter, you are here and gained a physical body (which Lucifer and his angels will never have - which is why they are sometimes called angels, having no body). The second purpose continues: the test of faith. Will we gain the second estate? Eternity in God's Kingdom.
This is why it matters that we existed before here.
