Ive seen many call for peace on earth, but perfect peace cannot permanenly co-exist with sin.
Don't you people realize that "perfect peace" is impossible? So let me get this straight... you think if all the "evil doers" are removed from Earth than everyone who remains will never have a single disagreement with anyone else ever again? Are you really that perfect and predictable? Get a grip... we are all flawed humans, and in a world where nothing can be predicted there is always a chance that you will get into a conflict with another person over something you cannot agree upon. A world where that is not possible is a mirage and an illusion, a prison where the possibilities have been limited. In this reality I know that nearly anything is possible, whether those possibilities are "good" or "bad" it doesn't matter, more possibilities provide us with more freedom compared to a reality where only a very limited set of events can occur.
I realize that I am flawed, but do you expect me to believe that a responsible God would allow me to transition into an after-life Utopia with my flaws?
The idea is simple, if all sinners are removed, those left are matured beyond the temptation of sin.
A responsible God gave man the choice and warning to not introduce sin into our nature.
Rebellion and idolatry . . . inherently incur their own destruction.
Yet, stubborn humans . . . arrogantly insist they know better than eternal ALMIGHTY GOD.
Instead, I mean that those who accept Jesus' payment for our sins will be given an Eternal After-Life without sin.
Sin is a freewill reaponse to temptation. Where there is no temptation and no capacity for sin, there will be no sin.
Who said Adam and Eve were "newborns" when they sinned?
Killing to save a life from the hands of a murder is not sin. Its justice and an adult's responsibility to their family.
“I want to give them of course !”
“and what will you call your gift”
“Does it matter ?”
“If you do not name it others will they will call it The book of Cody”
“I see alright I’ll call it The pages”
“And will you safeguard the pages or allow others to edit them, to change what they don’t understand, to strike out what they please whatever is not to their liking? “
“ No, no changes it is the word of the supreme being”
Not a line here or there to help them understand ?
“Who are you to insist”
“I was there at their creation”
“So will you be the keeper of the pages?”
“Someone has to as long as they promise no changes ”
“And here begins the pageite priesthood. Those who give their lives to protect an order of thinking become the priests of that order. Yet any new order, any new way is change and change is the end of the world as it is.”
“These pages are no threat, they are love and freedom.”
“And love and freedom are the end of fear and slavery.”
“Those who profit from fear and slavery, will they be happy with the message of the pages?”
“Probably not, but we can’t let this light be lost.”
“Will you promise to protect the light?”
“The other pageites, your friends, they’ll protect it too?”
“And if the profiteers in fear and slavery convince the king of this land that you are dangerous, if they march on your house, if they come with swords, how are you going to protect the pages?”
“I’ll take them away, I’ll escape.”
“And when you’re followed and caught and cornered?”
“If I have to fight I’ll fight, there are principles more important than life. Some ideas are worth dying for.”
“And so began the pageite wars.”
So you are saying that man created sin and not God? Have ever read the bible? Sin existed before man and God allowed it to corrupt this world and man.

Man was not initially created as flawed beings. A responsible God gave man the choice and warning to not introduce sin into our nature.
Utopia was once ours.
You can bounce around like a tiger in this world. It is just a matter of using the two realms against eachother. Imagine if there really is a world above us and below us then if you drank or ate from another world then you would become light. The reason is because you have something in you that resonnates at a different frequency. This is the same concept as the magic carpet rides of ole and the snake rope trick.

One with the gravity or mass or lack of whatever it is that would allow me to bounce around like Tigger, i've always wanted to do that.
One where everyone could speak to all the animal and the trees, well anything that is living.
Money would not exist.
War, jealousy, hatred, and just plain rottenness is human nature it is ingrained in us, I would not take that away but I would give every human the curse of feeling the pain they cause others. We lack empathy, I would end that.
