God's laws are perfect, and they call for someone to be dead for biting into an apple (or whatever that represents)? This thinking is
God placed Adam and Eve's sin on all of mankind? Now there's a loving god for ya.
I'm not expecting you to understand. This wasn't over any apple, it was a test of faith and trust and they failed. He wanted them to trust in him
and have faith in his Word, to listen to his Voice.
When Tina was a teen she disobeyed her father. Now, as an adult, she is driving to her own home from the hospital with her new baby. Upon
arriving home she finds that her father has spray painted her whole house black. Not just her house, but her baby's crib, too!
Question: Is the father showing love by what he's done, or is he just insane?
Of course he's insane, but if god paints your soul black, and the soul of your baby, it shows He's a loving, perfect god with perfect laws?
Not even near the same trying to equate a man to God. God is not like us and he says this clearly:
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
What you're failing to understand is God has laws set for all
mankind and it is those laws you do not know about that will hang you in the
end, therefore it is your responsibility to cling to the way out He has provided in Christ. He loved us all enough to give us a way to save us from
ourselves. It doesn't matter what religion you have, it doesn't matter if you have no religion at all. It doesn't matter if you believe or
disbelieve, you are bound by the laws regardless, denying him and them only works to your own destruction, this is why you cannot save yourself, you
wouldn't even know where to start or what to do. You may not believe in him, but he believes in you.
That's wholly irrational thinking.
You can't rationalize God, he will not fit into any box your mind tries to put him in.
