we aren't kids that you take the lighter away cause we're gonna smoke, we're kids who you take the lighter away from cause we haven't learned
So what you are now saying is that has condemned us from this knowledge until we have made ourselves worthy of it.
But only after he has played his little experiment with us.
Either way it was never a choice we had. It was his intention all along. Afterall, why would he create the choice if but for some sort of game?
Ever heard of the band Alien Ant Farm. Replace 'alien' with 'God'...
So there ya' go. The end result is precisely the same... except for one thing. God still created all of this knowing this would happen, because
unlike a simple alien, he is supreme in knowledge and power.
Therefore, you have no free will.
Therefore, I still side with the guy who GAVE (albeit through deception) us that free will to choose rather than live as a drone. (even if that
dronish life was perfect.) If we didn't have that choice there would be no adventure in life. No question. No road to travel.
Alas, I would be but a robot.
One could potentially argue that since one aligns with the decision to create a path in the first place they are still aligning with God's plan. So
be it, in that case, there is no harm aligning with the choice to decide.
The Serpent is but a tool and I, for one, applaud his decision. For without it, none of this would be possible.
