Re: Help Me Refute Two Arguments
God created everything perfect, but He gave man a free will, and man in His freedom sinned. Then sin caused the world and the universe to become imperfect. It's all there in the Bible. So the imperfections that you see are not the result of God creating an imperfect universe, it is the result of man marring what God created. Man was perfect, until he sinned, and his sin was not the result of any imperfection in the way God made him, it was the result of his conscious decision to reject God. God gave him the freedom to choose life or death, and he chose death.
As the history of the world, and molecular biology would demonstrate that if there were an intelligent designer, nothing would be imperfect in nature given that designer is qualified to be called God and thus is implied to be perfect. Because no thing that is perfect can create any thing that is imperfect.
1 John 1:7- But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
2 Corinthians 7:1- Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
