Why did God create the human race? He must have known we were going to turn our backs on Him and get into all kinds of trouble, so why did He bother making us in the first place?


God made us for one reason: so He could have fellowship with us. It wasn’t that He was lonely or needed us—but He made us in His image so He could shower His love upon us, and we could love Him in return. The Bible says, “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16).

You are right, however: God knew we were going to abuse our freedom and turn our backs on Him—and when we did, suffering and death descended on us. Adam and Eve lived in the most perfect environment imaginable, and yet they listened to Satan’s lies and rebelled against their Creator. We have been paying the price for their sin ever since.

But this didn’t stop God’s plan for the human race! He could have simply destroyed us—but because He loves us, He provided a way for us to come back to Himself. Even before the human race sinned, God knew what He would do: He would send His only Son into the world to become the sacrifice for our sins. The Bible says, “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world … to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 1:4-5).

Have you come back to God by giving yourself to Jesus Christ? Don’t spend your life wandering away from Him, but discover the joy of having fellowship with Him every day. By a simple prayer of faith ask Christ to come into your life, take away your sins and make you His child forever.

    I know and understand all about the “coming back to Him” part of it but it’s the beginning of sin in each person (not due to the Fall of Man) but why create Adam (the original first sinful human) since He knew Adam would sin and break His heart? I am seeking an answer from scripture as a Christian please. Thanks.

      Hi, to help you out biblically God’s purpose was to create a world in which His glory could be manifest in all its fullness. The glory of God is the overarching goal of creation. It’s the goal of everything He does. God knew Adam and Eve would fall. He creates them anyway, in His own image, to bring glory to Himself. They were given freedom to make choices. Even though they chose to disobey, their choices became the means by which God’s ultimate will was carried out and by which His full glory will be seen! Jesus saves.
