I don't understand why the answer people go to when they don't have one is faith. It promotes the idea that people aren't meant to be questioning at all.
My point is this...if God knows everything, he's known everything that was going to happen. Why would he even create Satan if he knew he was going to rise up against him? Why did he allow sin to be born in the first place? Sure, Christians have the sacrifice of Jesus to go to, but all that says is from the beginning of time he was PLANNING for his "first born son" to die. I can't follow the logic here.
It just makes it sound like he orchestrated everything so that people would want to worship him. He sounds like a very self-conscious god.
