Why do you all make it so hard? We were born to "GOD" as literal spirit children. We grew and developed to a point where we were sent here to earth to gain a physical body to be tested, to gain experiance and to develop ourselves into someone that can RETURN to once again live in His presence.
All babies are born with different personalities that they developed before coming to this earth. Ask any mother with more than one child, if they all had the same personality. The bible says we can RETURN to Gods presencs. You can't RETURN somewhere unless you were there before.
Wake up folks, it is so simple. No mysteries just plain simplisity.
Dad wants us to return so He made it simple to understand, not confusing as all would like you to believe. God is a God of order.
