Sorry if these question's cause any offence, that is not my intention, they are question's that have beleaguered my little mind since childhood (I
did ask the questions in the Catholic school I attended, but being called a 'wicked boy' and getting my backside leathered with a wooden ruler was
not really the answer I was hoping for) so here goes:
Q) Why didn’t God smite Adam and Eve for eating the forbidden fruit? In the Old Testament God is not too shy in smiting and a slaying all those who
have offended him. Would it have not been a better idea to restart from the beginning with the destruction of these two, create a new couple who would
adhere to his rules and negate humanity being cast out of Eden?
Is there any serious theological answers to these please? (this is my first thread, please be gentle)
