He is a hidden God, and does not reveal Himself. The spiritual in man may soar in the highest transcendental realms, but man's body is essentially that of an animal. If i design a computer for myself , i would not infect it with a virus and expect it to function as intended. God created the world basically as a vehicle upon which He could bestow His good.

If humanity is challenged, if the ecosystem seems stressed beyond repair, you want to be the Savior, the One to fix it forever. Would you communicate with your creation and build relationships? They have been living this way for centuries without any sign of improvement. They cease to have a mind of their own and develop a lethargy where life grows devoid of meaning. It most likely happened on the shores of the Red Sea about 50,000 years ago.
We could try to influence the island through infiltrators. The Christmas story is the greatest story and most important truth ever revealed to mankind. They would have to live on this island for many generations, scattered among the natives, and you would have to set up many safeguards to prevent them from assimilating the corrupt values of the island. What is the ultimate good that God can bestow on His creation? Yet it makes sense that the Creator would include both the personal and the impersonal. For example, there are lots of good end times questions: When exactly is Jesus returning? That's what I'd do as well. Like a chess grandmaster, you would attempt to keep control of the game at all times. If you opt for goodness, you will be admired by the liberals, but sneered at by the conservatives for not being man enough to make a real difference.
Each having an equal share of living space and breathing space and work space and freedom of choice for raising his family.

. Since I understand the big picture. But then I don't exist, so the question is moot. And I also note you wouldn't be healing the sick unless they pray to you.

No add-ons or extensions required, just login and start chatting! We may succeed in creating robots more intelligent than us, but it is doubtful that we will ever create them with a greater love. Moreover and beyond any imagination of the highest thoughts of man, God allowed His own revelation to be tortured, scourged, and crucified, totally rejected by His own creations who had already rejected Him from the beginning.
However, it will soon become rather hollow. It is a slow process, whereby God constantly maneuvers the forces of history toward this end. Coz I made a giant fvck up of this effort. We can ask: Why could man not have been made better? Will I be on Earth when He returns? The deeper we probe, the clearer this becomes. The ordinary man is always doing things, yet many more are left to be done. My book , unlike the Bible, wouldn't contradict itself and be full of verses that say the exact opposite of what other versus say.
