Character definition: Jesus Christ did only the Father's will and paid a price greater than we can imagine. Character deficient: Lucifer fell because he was not able to stand in his given status. As a free moral agent if character was a gift it would preclude direction and it wouldn't be character at all. Understanding that character is not a gift but must be developed in this time loop and that character is only developed through the process of being tested to the point of personal failure so that we might not be self sufficient but lean on Him. If character is the only attribute that we take with us from this temporary realm to the eternal does it not imply that it is not a vain quality but one which may predetermine our placement on the other side? Does not this make trials and troubles more precious than gold in that it is preparing us for that which the eye has not seen nor the mind conceived. Question: Did Adam and Eve possess character?
