This question was raised after reading a passage in the Duties of the Heart Gate 3 ch.9:
The Understanding: The mystery of your being is that the Creator created you out of nought, in common with all spiritual beings that He created; and His purpose is to exalt you and elevate you to the high degree of His treasured ones-the chosen and elect who are nearest to the light of His glory-for your good and out of His loving kindness towards you.
That last statement does not seem to make any sense. If He created you out of nothing, then how can He do so out of loving kindness towards "you". The fact that He created you a human being instead of a frog is all just coincidence for "you" did not yet exist.
