For my safety vs. liberty question above, think about this:
Jesus wants us to be safe and alive with him in heaven, but doesn't he give every person the liberty of free will to choose to be with him or not?
I think liberty is more important than safety, otherwise God would force us all to love him so we would all go to heaven.
I think God let's us choose, even if that choice means death.
And letting us have that choice is necessary for perfect love, and that choice also allows us to unselfishly love God.
So, there's my two cents on the matter. If you agree, you can answer my poll as 'liberty is more important,' if you disagree, I would like to hear your argument.
