Which isn't far off base. If we are all born into sin, and we have to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, then technically all babies and those that are unable to make a decision on their own go to Hell. I can't recall if there is a scripture referring an age of accountability.
To me, the reasoning behind creating mankind with imperfections was to allow man to see that s/he is not Lord of things. That s/he HAS to depend on God and find humility and reason to worship God. But I have a problem with the way Christianity explains it as: it was necessary so we believe in Jesus's shedding blood on the cross. Whereas in Islam it is said that it was necessary so mankind could ask for forgiveness the minute s/he err'ed or went against the orders of God. Which is what Adam did, so we're told. In this I believe Christians leave debate material for atheists who having seen the time difference between Jesus's blood shed and the creation of Adam, have the right to ask you: so WHY did God wait so long to shed blood? get my drift? There are other debates going on as well, in reality I believe these inconsistencies turn people from God simply because what they are told, within Christianity, does not make sense.
