Eden perfect home
(High Point, NC USA)
How can Eden have been a perfect home with Satan living there? Because Satan lived there, Adam and Eve made the mistake of believing his story about the tree. They were never forgiven. The opposite of what we are taught to do, in the Bible.
Because these two made that mistake they were run out of the Garden and condemned to a life of pain, grief and death. God also included all his creation that would follow.
According to this way of thinking we should be able to bomb all of Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea, Pakistan and etc without worry about those that did not take part in terrorist attacks, just as we did not live in Eden and eat the forbidden fruit.
If you commit a wrong against me I am to forgive you, not forgive you with stipulations attached. So, I'll forgive you for the wrong against me, but ever after I'll be getting even with you for the wrong against me?
How can it be that God would say: do as I say, not as I do? This is Gods universe, Gods world, Gods created life, and he can DO ANYTHING with it that he wants to, so why a world full of unspeakable horrors?
Did God wind up the world, turn it on, then leave the scene? Does anyone out there have a sensible answer for this? Not platitudes and gloss-overs! I was born again in 1947.
Now after seeing these many years of horrors and losing my wife at her age of 52, I am left with some questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
