A respond to my question "But why?"

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

On Sept 14th I have posted "But why?", asking the fundamental and most basic of questions: why did God create us knowing we will turn away?

Martin Luther in Table Talk has a very good answer:

Someone asked, "Since God knew that man would not continue in the state of innocence, why did He create him at all?"

Dr Luther laughed and replied, "The Lord, all-powerful and magnificent, saw that He should need in His house sewers and cesspools. Be assured that He knows quite well what He is about. Let us keep clear of these abstract questions, and consider the will of God such as it has been revealed unto us.
