I am wondering, instead of sending us fire and brimstone, why doesnt a compassionate God intervene in a way that will not kill, men women and
children, a planet that will hit and blow us out of orbit, and horrible things like that???
He made us, damn it. Why did he make us FLAWED. Its HIS fault.
There's nothing compassionate here that i can see.
Do not get caught in the metaphors.
Adam and Eve and the apple and Eden... come on, now.
"Eve took a bite from an apple off the Tree of Knowledge"
Eve asked God to show her more. To show her what else there was out there that he was keeping from her.
God had intended to protect them, sheltering them from the Truth.
Lucifer, the Master of trickery, convinced her that God was keeping something from her, that he was keeping her ignorant of information she had the
right to possess.
Yes, she had the right to possess the Truth. She believed God was keeping important knowledge from her, so she took a bite from the Tree of
God, in agony, gave in, and He began to show them what they were missing.
To this day, humans are still being shown what they were missing.
The reason God did not want to show them in the first place, is because of infinity and eternity.
There are an infinite amount of possibilities, meaning an infinite amount of information.
It will take an eternity for humans to experience everything God knew.
When we leave this life, we head to an alternate dimension, to experience parts of the eternal infinity that could not be experienced in our current
Some of these alternate lives will be Hells, others will be Heavens.
There is no eternal resting place.
Just know that, even if things are going bad in this life, you will find yourself in a happier situation, in another time.
