(1)God is infinitely perfect in power, mind and character.

Agreed

(2)Our universe was created perfect.

Agreed

(3)Due to the granting of the gift of free will we were able to choose to reject God as our master, which we did.

Agreed

(4)Our current universe is a degenerating corrupted creation which is de-evolving.
The curse was the punishment given for disobedience before we chose to disobey.
We will see more and worse disease, weeds, and human genetic malfunctions as time progresses.


Not de-evolving. It is evolving according to the rules dictated by the fruit taken from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Life will learn of good and evil by experiencing and seeing both in the universe, and that evolution will be painful and rewarding at the same time.

(5)God is able to cause an imperfect defective soul to be perfected allowing the souls entrance to a new perfect universe which will be created to replace the old.

Agreed

(6)This transformation is not an easy undertaking even for God as it required a soul to live a perfect life and then be willing to suffer for the offences of others. This is a prescription that only God Himself could fill and so He came and lived a life as a Man called Jesus.

Agreed

(7)God will not violate a free will and therefore all who would be changed must want this change to perfection. God has a purpose for creating free willed creatures who were willingly perfected which only He knows.

Agreed

(8)Any who do not want evil removed from them will not be changed, however they will not be allowed to harm the new perfect universe and therefore all freedom must be removed or action intended to harm must be prevented. This condition is commonly revered to as hell.

Agreed

Christianity is different from all other religions in that it defines entering heaven as an accomplishment that only God can preform while requiring only a willing soul for participation.

Agreed

All other religions are attempts for human kind to find a way to heaven on their own. By suffering themselves. Or doing some good deed.
Or even evolution while at the same time rejecting Gods solution. Because Gods solution requires an honest admission that we do things that are wrong, on purpose. This admission of course violates our pride. It is much easier to shake our fist at God or ignore Him which is what the majority of us will do.


There's a purpose for each and every religion.

For God creating a universe is easy. Saving a soul... now thatís tough.

I don't think something being 'hard' or 'easy' is relevant when refering to God.
