9352. The main reason was for the sake of the Word. This is so because the Word is God's truth itself which teaches people about the existence of God, of heaven and of hell, and of life after death, and above all teaches them how they must live and believe in order to enter heaven and so be happy for evermore. Without revelation, thus without the Word in the case of this planet, all these things would have remained totally unknown; and yet the human being has been so created that as to his internal man he cannot die.
