Yes.

"If God is perfect, how does free will exist?"

Ever seen that episode of the Twilight Zone where the world is perfect and it gets boring and it just turns out to be hell? I'm sure God likes to be surprised just as much as we do. We are in His image, after all.

Do you think freewill was always part of his intentions with humans?

I don't know what his intentions are; I don't need to know. The important thing is, I'm here, and I'm trying to get there.

It's fair to say, rather, that gingers don't have bodies.

I no you don't know, I asked what you thought. Why make a post about answering questions if you're going to avoid giving answers relevant to the question?

Since I'm never going to know in this life, I don't feel the need to venture a guess.

In other words, I don't care what His intentions are; that's His business.

Do you think the Bible is literal, or metaphorical?
Today, you are you,
That is truer than true,
There is no one alive,
That is youer than you.

I think a predominant amount of the history and teachings are literal, but it's not perfect all of the time.

1. God gave man his word,
2. Man wrote it in the Bible,
3. Man is imperfect,
4. So is the Bible.

How can freewill exist with imperfection if everything created by something perfect, is supposed to be perfect?
Does that mean our freewill is working in accordance with a perfect plan?
If that is true then wouldn't that prove to be a lack of freewill?

Why didn't god inspire the corrections to the mistakes that man made.
Why did god use such an inefficient means of communication without correction.

A perfect God can make something imperfect if He wants to, the same way Michael Phelps can swim slowly if he wants to.

Why did He? Back to square one. Don't know; don't care.

If you understand the Bible isn't perfect, And I also assume you don't think any other religious book is perfect. Do you think God planned for these "religious" imperfections to conflict? Why do you think he let all these written imperfections exist?

It all goes back to the fact that God made man imperfect on purpose. Why? dkdc.

Not necessarily. One can watch without interfering.

Not to say God never interferes; when the world just gets totally screwed over, He's been known to send change for the better in some form (i.e., great flood; Jesus).

I am. Say, when I ask to be or God sees that I need to be. I don't think that God never interferes, but in large cases like scriptural texts, one perfect word wouldn't give man the ability to seek the truth.

I think it's possible. It's not radical, it's as radical as claiming you believe aliens exist. But that's happening quite often. What I find radical is that your afraid to have an opinion on it.

I think if reincarnation existed God would make ruthless people bugs that are tortured by kids. Something like that. I don't necessarily believe reincarnation exists, but I don't think it's wrong to theorize anything. As long as people realize it has no facts to support it.
