Re: Why do souls come to Earth?

Empty Purnata ·
LOL, that's Evangelical teaching on the nature of why the soul incarnates. They believe that souls need to be "proven loyal to God", so they come to earth in physical bodies "tainted with Original Sin", and if they fail to "believe" (follow Christianity), they go to the Second Death after death (Eternal Hell). IMHO, a very simplistic, silly and immoral belief.

I am not evangelical. Never was. There is no original sin. I'm a heretic. If the purpose of living is to attain human perfection, is there anything beyond human perfection? What are angels, archangels? Are there more levels to the game? What happens to souls that fail to attain the required level by the time the game ends? What is the second death?
