It has been calculated that if there actually was an ark built according to the Old Testament instructions, it would have been impossible to carry, at least in the way described.
- If god knew the future: then god would have known that Uzzah would touch the Ark of the covenant to keep it from falling.

But god knew what would happen, and didn't do anything to prevent it. God also could have taken the ark by himself to prevent all of this.
If he was loving and merciful he could have prevented it, or at least forgive. But instead he kills.
Repentance is an English word, so you would use the English definition.
You are using the English definition. I am using the literal definition of the Greek word metanoia: change of mind, repentance.
Text Can a good God let evil exist?
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
I don't think that any of this that you are saying is true.
Do you realize that Adam and Eve were both evil before they had knowledge of their evil? Think about that real deeply. Do you realize that the tree of knowledge of good and evil was not the tree to do good and evil. Re read Genesis 2:9 and 17. Adam and Eve had already sinned before they ate of the tree of awareness of what they did.
TextI don't think that any of this that you are saying is true. You have no scriptural base for your ideas, you just make bare statements with nothing to back them up.
TextAccording to Bible, the universe existed as an inhospitable place that God had to strive against to bring order to it, before it could be a livable environment.
Text That means things are naturally evil, not that God made it that way, it just is, that is the nature of it, if God did not intervene to make it better.
Text The knowledge that it is talking about in the tree of knowledge is a practical skill, so it is not just an awareness, of evil, but the ability to do evil.
Text It doesn't say that God put the tree of knowledge in the garden, but that it was just there, and God warned Adam about it.
Text Where it says "I create evil" in Isaiah, it just means that there is no other opposing god out there creating it. It is talking about the situation where Babylon is overthrown by the Persians. It was evil, for the Babylonians, but good for the Persians. It wasn't that there was a good god for the Persians or a bad god for the Babylonians. It was the same one god who did both. But, ultimately, to cause blessings on the world in general.
It doesn't say that.
Everything that exists was created by God and John 1:3 verifies that nothing exists without God creating it.
What is "this terrestrial creation"?
In the beginning of this terrestrial creation this terrestrial existence was a mass of mud and water.
The ones you were alluding to earlier?
Whether you want to believe another bible which contradicts the KJV bible is most certainly your prerogative but according to these scriptures what I have said is theological truth.
On the contrary all forms of creation obeyed the Word of God and nothing says that God had to struggle or be in danger of any sort. That is absolutely foolish and not scriptural at all.
I'm telling you what the words say.
You are telling me that the bible says that Eve did not have the ability to sin before she ate of the tree.
It nowhere says in the Bible that God put the tree there to be a snare to trap the people of the garden.
Are you saying that the tree of knowledge simply grew in the garden of its own accord? Are you implying that God did not create it and place it in the garden for that specific purpose? What do you think about the tree of life being in the garden also?
You have a very strange interpretation of scripture and seem to have your own bible???
