Just looking at everything around you, how it all works together to replenish the atmosphere, and how complicated everything is, especially the human eye. There's no way all that was made by some freak accident.
I don't really know how to describe it but you can just kinda feel His presence..

Maybe he just wants to know if we Love him or not. Even if we did start in Heaven, I'm not sure we'd all Love Him. It is said the during the "Millennium" though the world will be rid of the devil, thus no more evil and it would be perfect, and Jesus himself will be ruling, people sill still reject him.

No matter what, something is going to offend someone.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

"The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost."

A friend is one who knows you, but loves you anyway.
