At first I was like okay, this still makes SOME sense, then I was like alright mom and dad, # this #, I'm going Hare Krishna. No more Church, no more prayers before meal, the whole deal is off. It makes much more sense than any religion I've ever seen before here in Oklahoma and you can go # yourself if you don't like it. Now I'm doing what I see fit, I've read so much about Krishna and I feel happy, that's what life is about after all, live in the moment and that's the motto.

Sooo, you're saying that they needed to learn how to defy authority? That this god wanted them to defy his authority? Well, hell, I do that all the time!
It's been over 5,000 years of this breeding of perfection. Lemme tell ya, it ain't workin'.
Yeah, it makes sense in a kind of twisted, psychotic...PFFF! No it doesn't! Not even in a demented way. Makes no sense whatsoever.

HAHA! Loved it. But you forgot about the part 1/3 of his subjects rebel against his loving nature, and he sends them right where he put Adam and Eve!
But that's not all! These rebellious ones are able to rape and get earth girls pregnant with evil giants!
HAHA! Talk about a loving "father" type god? Uh, no.

That's a very imaginative, apologetic too, but totally a non-Biblical explanation!
There just wasn't room in the garden for any more "knows right from wrong" folks.
"He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” Genesis 3:22
All that ?
And that isn't even the worst of it. Wait til you find out what a horrible judgment call you just made.
I can't believe this guy. Throws a major gripe, fit, rant tantrum at Christians, God, Jesus and the Bible. Then storms off in his stiletto's to become a Krishna. I mean why all the drama OP ?
It sounds to me like you may be holding something against your mom and dad. So many people make the sad mistake of blaming God for their problems, when they should be turning to Him to take care of their problems.
And what if it was Adam, man, who rebelled in that garden? What if it was Adam who had been created perfect and it was iniquity that was found in him - not some silly man made doctrine of fallen angels?. What if it was Adam's brightness and pride? Look around you - this world is heading for a showdown between it's rejection and rebellion to its Creator and that Creator Himself. Why? The mystery of iniquity.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Man was "kicked out" of the Garden of Eden to prevent him from taking from the Tree of Life .
"He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Genesis 3:22 In the OP's human pride and arrogance, he rejects His Creator's gift to man - taking from that Tree of Life and eating, and living forever. Jesus Christ is that Way, but prophetically, the world rejected him for the old son, fallen man. How utterly tragic is it that man cannot see that he is the beast?
Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life.
Because I don't see any evidence on your part.
As far as to spout off and be disrespectful to other peoples belief systems just makes you look contrived and desperate.No offense intended...it's just i get really vexed when i see someone using their personal opinion as common fact or universal law.
I don't think truth is in any way joined at the hip with evidence and proof. Evidence and proof can tell the biggest lies of all.
I gotta be honest, I'm pretty burned out on it myself right now.
Might account for my weak enthusiasm as of late.
