I did not ask to be created, so why should I owe God anything?

This question does not really make sense. Since you had no consciousness before you were born, you could not make any choices. You did not ask because you could not ask.

It is better to act in the real world because you are in it. Now is the time to make the best decisions you can with what you have. You did not ask to be born into a world of gravity, but you are still careful about stepping off the roof of tall buildings.

You probably did not ask to make the amount of money you earn per year, but you can change that by educating yourself for a higher-paying job or by making other decisions. You can likewise make a good decision for eternity by finding out more about the God of the Bible and coming to terms with what you learn.

What Do You Think?

a. People in the poorer third world countries did not ask to be born there. Do you think they are wondering if they owe anyone for that?
