Why would God give us this?

I believe that God gave humans the ability to create things, like medicine and cars, in the ability to make a better world and a better species. However, I am honsetly curious and really want to understand somethings. If God gave us the ability to grow, why would He give us the ability to create things that were wrong and against His word. For example if abortion is wrong and is against God, why would have given us the ability to learn how to do this practice? The same thing with homosexuality, why would He allow people to think like this if it is wrong? I really want to uderstand His thoughts and actions. I know we are here to try to be more like him. By why would he allow us to make weapons of mass destruction? Any ideas?

  • Because without bad, there is no good. We live in a world full of duality. It would be way to easy if everything was perfect, there has to be a balance of good & bad for this existence to work. Humans need to learn in order for our souls to evolve. In Hinduism, we believe in karma %100. When you do bad, you get it back in some way, shape or form either in this life or the next. And through these experiences, we learn how to become better people & slowly through every incarnation, our soul evolves into a more pure soul. Without the bad, we could never learn to experience the good. God is good.

  • He gave us free will, and that is a lot of freedom.

  • I think it would come down to free will. Either we have free will to do what we choose, even if it's against the wishes of the Deity, OR we don't have free will...

  • God doesn't give the negative things in life but He allows it to give you/us the ability to use your/our free will. Good thing He Does give forgiveness and salvation

  • he gave us the freedom of choice. we all as humans have the choice to do right or wrong. in is like a child you raise you do your best to teach them to be good people and do the right thing. but eventually they grow up and have to make those choices themselves. and you only hope they choose what is right. and choose to take that straight and narrow...even if at times it is the harder road to travel. hope that make since.

  • There must be opposition in all things. Jesus and the Devil. Good and Evil. Life and death. Etc. You can not have one without the other, and can not believe in one without the other.

  • Bleh. People have forgotten kindness, thankfullness, gentleness... all of it. I don't think that has anything to do with a higher power and more with what we allow to go on in our society.

  • As everyone else has said, it is Free Will.
