Why are microspheres a logical first step toward cellular organization????

They allow a primitive form of cell specialization. Each cell retains the ability to survive completely on its own, and can perform all tasks necessary for survival, but as part of a microsphere it only performs a few of those tasks. For example, some cells in the sphere can be used solely for movement, others for reproduction, others for gathering food, etc. All it takes for a microsphere to become a true multicellular organism is for the cells to lose the ability to perform the jobs that they don't do; that is, reproduction cells lose the ability to move the organism, movement cells lose the ability to gather food, and so on.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
