"Love and worship me or burn in hell for all eternity..."<quoted text> God works in mysterious ways. I know - you've heard that phrase all too often. But He DOES. The reason why we give God so much value is because He gives us a CHOICE. Oh sure, He could MAKE everyone PERFECT, but then if He did, WE WOULD HAVE NO FREE CHOICE. We would be like robots, obeying His every command. He always places a CHOICE before us. We've got to WANT to serve Him. Now, do you think Satan would do the same if HE were in control?? FAT CHANCE. He would FORCE everyone to do things HIS WAY. You think GOD is MEGALOMANIACAL?? Not anywhere near to the degree that Old Scratch is.
That's not really a choice.
