It would be so much easier to live in a world where God punishes the evil and rewards the good; a world where everybody knows only good things will happen to them if they follow God’s commandments and calamity will be visited only upon those who do not. However, that type of world would eliminate the freedom to make choices between good and evil. People who chose to be good because they will be rewarded are no better than trained dogs performing for treats. The choice is meaningless.
