you got it a little wrong they were innocent, then they ate from the tree he didnt want them knowing right from wrong, just what was right so he could teach them like their father which he is.

if you were more open-minded u wouldnt believe every word of the bible literally but interepret it into ur own meaning to live life god intended u to, instead of whining and complaining and blaiming God for the so called curses and wrongs he does to people and nature and why he wont make things right for the world. u have a chance to fix things for urself and for others in this world, that should please you and the Lord.

You know for a fact that the Bible...not any other book was given to us by "Him". I highly doubt this. This is what i mean by those who just preach, when really, it is the nature of knowledge that we do not actually KNOW anything.

God has designed it this way, if you KNEW God existed you wouldnt be able to doubt him or believe he doesnt exist. If you KNEW he existed you wouldnt truely have free will.

I know He exists, and yes I truly have free will, but it is MY choice to try to subdue my will and say Not my will but THINE be done. It is about learning obedience to God, the same you learned obedience to your earthly parents.

nobody is innocent,
because they are one with god,
when they allow life to take away their innocence,
by regret making them understand
and giving them back innocene.

life works as a round clock,
you are in rest, you see a negative, you become negative,
you understand the negative, you turn into right, you become positive

ignorance doesnt have a motor, no negative to make right

this circle goes on and on and on and on

until you justified everything in god to be right.

you do not need to see god to find god,
honesty will allow you to see him once when it's time,
until then you just care by honesty,

you don't have to give money to a begger
but you have to see him,
if you see him, it will not give you rest and peace,
and your care will change things

the begger is god,
so you ignore him or you see him
and when you see him, you see yourself.

while doing this you will start to understand
the person or issue you help in action or in thought

and you will justify more of god and life.
so life is justifying you as automatic result.

that is the message of all the holy books.


truth is god is truth,
it's absolute and it is free
that's why truth is alive,
if it is not it's subject to a higher truth
and in absolute truth is one and free
and what is one, truth, does not judge himself.

BUT thats the thing its not about being obedient. Its about WANTING to do the right thing because its part of your characters, your nature. Its not about subduing yourself and making yourself do something. Its because you truely believe it is the right thing to do.

That is why we are here, to grow to the likeness of God. Yes our souls are in his image, but we are a long way off his perfection.

universal truth is not measured in mass appeal, just thought you should know, so what are you waiting for.

why measure what you allready have.
if you have. before that you divide to make one.
As long a person is here on this earth he will
share stuff. that's care. it's not really important
it gets used, because care is not only for the other,
it is also for yourself, one means me and we.
talking we do as long we are confirming something to ourselves.

and
you can't take literally what you dont understand
the bible said love ONE how ? by seeing him and growing.
parables were not meant to be understood
without effort and the right time.

Religions tell you what to believe. Knowledge is Subjective. Organised religion is illogical. Thats my 2c.

I wholeheartedly agree with you

Why blame God for the godless acts of godless people? Man has free will. What he does with it is evident, one way or another.

Believing in, and following after the Divine; putting one's faith in the Divine and seeking to be governed by the Divine, is not being religious. One who seeks Divine attributes as the core foundation of their character, such as: humility, meekness, patience, love, forgiveness, mercy, grace, and justice, is not the cause of mankind's problems. Where such a person is, there is God also.

But those who covet things of this world; those who envy others for having things that they don't have; those motivated by selfish human pride; and those prone to wrath who are the rapers, murderers, suicide bombers, molesters, robbers, thieves, etc. among us.

You have the two possible states of existence. You cannot live for both ways. Living for one results in the denial of the other.

I believe that the Bible is almost like a fable. A nice story with a core truth hidden inside. You should interpret the bible symbollically to see them.
