World is a place of lifetime education
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated November 20th, 2015
ADNAN OKTAR: A viewer nicknamed Einstein asks, "We all know that God puts people to a trial in the face of some events. But He knows beforehand how people under His trial will react. He also knows who will go to heaven and who will go to hell. Yet He still puts them to trial. Why God tests people even though He already knows the result? I would appreciate it if you can enlighten about this. I hope my question was not a long one." It is not long. For us, it is a trial; for God, it is a means of education. God educates us. This trial is a seeming one; actually we are trained about our innate nature. God constantly uses innate science. For example, He tells people, "There are mountains, plains, gaze at the stars and the moon." Those who gaze at the moon actually gaze into their brain. Almighty God talks about long distances that would take two months to travel there and back, but when people look at that distance, they see the distance inside their minds. This is the innate science. God always tells the truth, but not in the way people think.
We have to go through a training. This world is like a university. The education begins once the person grows mature. In fact, it begins in the elementary school. It is God who educates people in the elementary school. It is God who educates people through middle school, high school and university. This education never ends; He educates them at home, at school, on the street, at hospitals, while they eat, while they have fun, while they do exercises. And once the education ends, He takes them to His side. People undergo an intricate education in myriad different fields, but they think it is the university that provides education. We are undergoing education even in here. It is actually God who asks the viewer's question; God is the One who writes something, but He makes it look like a person writes it. God makes it look so that the writer thinks it is him who writes. It is also God who answers the question, but He makes it seem like I am the one answering it. He makes both you and me hear it. This is the innate science. When the person is asked 'who is the one speaking," he says 'I am,' but the One who actually speaks, who creates the speech. "God has given speech to everything," says God in the verse. But the people are still responsible for what they speak, and the merits or sins that come with it.
