Have you ever thought about the story of Adam and Eve? I mean really thought about it. Of course we all know the story, but what does it say about the character of the Christian god? The bible says that god created Adam and Eve and put them in a garden. In the garden they could eat whatever they wanted except from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. God said if they eat from that tree they would surly die. So, of course, they did and that is how sin entered the world.
But wait. How did Adam and Eve know it was wrong to disobey god? Without the “Knowledge of Good and Evil” would they not have been like babies in this realm? How would they understand the evil of disobeying god and the good of obeying him without the “Knowledge of Good and Evil”? Could not god be seen as a neglectful parent for leaving them alone in the garden with that kind of danger around?
In today’s world it would be like a father leaving a two year old in a room with a bomb. Not just a bomb, but a bomb with a big, red, flashing button on it. Do you think the two year old will push the flashing red button or not? I would wager that even if the father said “Don’t push that red button or you will die” the two year old would still push it as soon as the father left the room. Who is at fault here the kid or the father? Adam and Eve or god?
