It appears that this shows more of a bitter and haughty attitude, with no real reflective thinking behind it.
For example, the fact that God asked Adam and Eve to recognize his sovereignty was in no means asking them to give him "blind obedience."
Let's put ourselves in their shoes for a moment (although they didn't have any -.-). Adam was given a perfect body, with the ability to reason, to
talk, and with freewill. Where did Adam one day become a man and realize he existed? It was in a paradise. It was called the "garden of Eden." Eden
And indeed there was nothing but goodness. He enjoyed perfect health, had a paradise, and everything else one could ask for, including the most
beautiful woman a person has ever laid eyes upon. This intelligent reasoning person must have come to the logical conclusion that God is a good and
loving God. And also that he is very thoughtful and wise to be able to create all of this.
Also God frequently talked to Adam. It wasn't as if he was left wondering who he was, or why he was there. And he was given satisfying work. All in
all, you may, or that author, may think that taking something that didn't belong to him, and something which God said, don't take, was a small
But things back then were perfect, and a small thing was a big matter.
Rather than showing God's vengeful need for blind obedience, it was showing God's foresight and wisdom in dealing with his perfect creation. Allowing
them to choose whether or not they were going to use their freewill to lovingly show loyalty to him, or would they selfishly use it to
