God created man completely. Man was complete as much as God saw it was good. However God didn’t make him perfect. Man committed sin and went astray from God because he was not perfect. What is the difference between perfect and complete? For instance, the microphone that I use is complete. There is no problem to produce sound. But some time later, it will fail to produce sound and be broken. When God created man, the man was complete to see with his eyes, to hear with his ears, to speak with his mouth, to think with his brain, and to act with his whole body. But the man was broken in a moment. Adam and Eve committed sin in the Garden of Eden. Likewise, all humans carry out righteousness in obedience with God and then suddenly, they could do evil, turning away from the word of God. After that, they could regret their action and turn back to God by repenting of their sin. We can make mistakes anytime and fall down, which they can do as long as they live on earth. In other words, humans were created by God completely but not perfectly. Perfect never changes, eternally and only God is perfect. Therefore, we have to cast the impossible to God and let God solve our problems. It’s because the perfect God is the Creator so there is nothing He can’t do.“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”(Psalms 18:30)
