For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
JOHN 3 VERSE 16
God didn't have to do that for us. He didn't have to do anything for us, after our race rejected him and decided to follow Lucifer.
God CLEARLY told Adam and Eve that if they ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil - the forbidden fruit - that they would surely die.
Adam and Eve didn't have to eat that fruit. It wasn't an apple - people keep saying it was an apple - it wasn't an apple, apples weren't forbidden fruit. It wasn't a mango, it wasn't a fig, it wasn't a tomato, it wasn't a melon, it wasn't a banana. It was the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. All the other fruits and more were food for Adam and Eve.
The nearest people can get to to that paradise nowadays is when they (if they can afford it) go to a tropical rain forest holiday. Warm weather, beauty surrounding you everywhere, food in abundance to just pick off the trees. Funny how mankind is wrecking even the last traces of the nearest you can get to earthly paradise, no-one can blame God for that, when everyone can clearly see its humans doing it.
God made this planet for us to live in - he planned it very carefully. He made the atmosphere, the landscape, the plants and animals and last of all, the people. He made it just the way he wanted it. I don't really know why he made it, or us. He made it just because he wanted to, same as I made a nice bag for my pencils last week, because I wanted to. God can do anything he likes, because he is God.
I think God is a magician. He can say "Let there be light" and light appears.
Lucifer isn't a magician. He pretends to be one, but his power is limited. His power has to come through human beings enslaved to him. Not like God. There isn't any real magic in the devil, he's just an obnoxious bully who has to get weak human beings - flesh and blood - to do his running around for him.
God is the Creator. The devil is the Wrecker.
God loves us and died for us, to save us from destruction. The devil hates us and has always been jealous of us, since Adam and Eve were created, after he rebelled against God.
