Struggle versus Survival

How God judges a man is something we cannot imagine at all. If he really takes strength of temptation and the fraility of nature into account, whom can he condemn? But otherwise the resultant of these two forces is simply the end for which the man was predestined. In that case he was created so that the interplay of forces would make him either conquer or succumb. And that sounds not like a religious idea at all, but more like scientific hypothesis...

So if you want to stay within the religious sphere you must struggle
