Ok, I've seen all your replies, and... here's what I got to say:
Q1: What was the purpose for God to Create A Man? (Which we identify as Adam.)
A1: To Till the soil. (Gen 2:5, last part "and there was not a man to till the ground.")
If the Purpose for creating A Man, (this Man Adam) was to "till the ground," how is this man that God created, going to do that, inside a garden ALREADY TILLED AND PLANTED BY GOD, AND YIELDING FRUIT?! (He's not fulfilling the original purpose, yet, is he?.)
(Here's a question for you "Empty Nesters" out there longing for the bliss of a Florida Retirement, only to have it dashed, because the kids came back home to "slum it" with you.)
If God's purpose was to have this man Adam till the ground, and the ground to be tilled is OUTSIDE the GARDEN of EDEN, how you going to have him keep at it, and not 'run back home' giving up when the going gets rough?
(If there ain't no 'home' to run back to...guess you got to keep at it, right?)
The LORD set this WHOLE THING UP FROM THE VERY START!
Who else BUT GOD let the serpent in to ask any questions of the Helpmeet? (later to be named 'Eve' by Adam in Gen 3:20)
WHO was the Helpmeet referring to when SHE said "God hath said...." in Gen 3:3 to the serpent?
(Hint: God never said to Adam, "Neither shall ye touch it..." Right?)
(Oh, and for those of you saying: "But but... when Moses drew that circle around God's Circle, saying anything crossing Moses' LARGER circle shall surely DIE! And doesn't THAT venerate ADAM telling EVE about not touching the TREE, SURELY, GOD WOULD HAVE APPROVED.....")
(And what did Jesus say to Peter, when Peter said "Surely Not!"? "Get the behind me, Satan: for your mind is not on the things of God, but of Man!")
Go ahead: Juxtapose Gen 2:17, with Gen 3:3, you'll see the difference.
Oh! For those of you "short-circuiting" now...and, saying "Well.....SHE MADE IT UP!"
(Kind of sounds like former DC Mayor MARION BERRY, when he stated "The B---- set me up!" when he got caught with the crack and the hooker, Doesn't it?)
Where did the Helpmeet get ANY information, (let alone, 'make up' any information) to TELL the serpent, about THAT "TREE (of knowledge of Good and Evil)" unless either Adam, or God, told it to her?
Oh, and here's an idea: All that fruit-eating causes the digestive systems to ... err ... function in certain ways....What happens if the "nakedness" that Adam and his Helpmeet were aghast over WAS NOT THE GENETALIA that they covered with fig leaves? but what was in the BACK of them?
(Remember...there was no toilet paper in the Garden of Eden...just as much as there was no toilet paper to be had in the stores LAST YEAR, either, for a while, was it? Thanks, WuFlu!)
And Just be honest. Mortality is a method to control overpopulation, right?
(Why do you think BillG, Klaus, and all the other elites want this "great Reset" when their work hitting US with the Chinese COOF isn't yielding enough fruit, for them?)
Like I said, LORD set it all up!
Who ELSE BUT GOD, was going to tell the serpent "you shall crawl on your belly and eat DUST..." and two verses later tell Adam, "GUESS WHAT YOU ARE, BUDDY?!"
(OH, and one more thing, folks: Before you go downvoting this reply to wild abandon like Caiaphas "renting" his clothes off, calling Jesus a "Blasphemer!" and sending me over to the SE folks, like the Sanahedrin did Jesus, to Pilate.... PRAY on this reply first! Ask the Lord to help you test the spirits. See whether or not what I'm saying is right, or bupkus...)
(Maybe....JUST MAYBE.... you'll find the scales lifted from your eyes... whether you LIKE what you see or not, is a completely DIFFERENT MATTER entirely.)
