Any devious adult will do.

 

Please answer the question, Edgarcito.

 

If a devious adult tricked your children, while they were young and vulnerable, into breaking a law, you'd WANT them prosecuted to the full extent of the law because they brought this suffering upon themselves?

 

Yes or No?

 

 

Not playing the game Walter....I'm asking whether you to assign evil intent to the God side of the dichotomy, NOT the serpent side.  You have not done that.

 

Secondly I DID answer your question:

The answer would be yes.  I'm certain the entity Satan get's the full extent in the end.

Maybe God meant "this fruit is to die for." Not that you would really die from eating it.             

Some people call me Maur-ice.   Reee...raow.

Good observation, Myrkhoos.  In 1 Timothy, Paul contradicts his views of women in the church as he expresses them elsewhere, because 1 Timothy was not written by Paul.  It is widely accepted - outside

But the god side of the equation has nothing to do with my question, Edgarcito.

 

Adam and Eve were not deceived by god, they were deceived by the serpent.

 

In my question to you today, god is the lawmaker and not the one deceiving Adam and Eve.

 

I asked you about the deceiver, not the lawmaker.

 

So, in fact, you have NOT answered my question.

 

Please do so, now that you understand who I am referring to.

Yes or No, Edgarcito?

Oh and in case you're confused about the identity of them, Edgarcito...

 

 

If a devious adult tricked your children, while they were young and vulnerable, into breaking a law, you'd WANT them prosecuted to the full extent of the law because they brought this suffering upon themselves?

 

 

Them means your children.

 

 

Got that?

 

 

 

So, please answer Yes or No.

I have squarely answered your question specifically with respect to the deceiver, the serpent.  Quoting for the third time:

I'm not asking about the serpent Edgarcito.

 

I'm asking you if you would want YOUR CHILDREN punished to the full extent of the law after having been tricked into breaking it by a devious adult.

 

What about your children, Edgarcito?

 

Would you want them punished to the full extent of the law for being tricked into breaking a law?

 

 

Yes or No?

Thank you, Edgarcito.

 

 

 

Then it's ok for god's children, Adam and Eve, to be punished to the full extent of the law?

 

 

 

But it's not ok your own children to be punished to the full extent of the law?

 

 

 

Even though, in both cases, both sets of children were tricked into breaking the law?

 

 

 

Really?

One, as I have requested, you haven't demonstrated that God has tricked anyone.

 

And two, define "full extent of the law", and how God has done this to Adam and Eve.

You still haven't grasped what scripture says and what I have been saying, Edgarcito.

 

2 Corinthians 11 : 3

 

But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

 

It was the serpent who tricked Eve and Adam, not god.

 

In the context of today's dialogue I never said or implied that god tricked them.

 

The serpent tricked them (Adam and Eve) and god punished them (Adam and Eve) to the full extent of the one law that he (god) bound Adam and Eve with.

 

This law.

 

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 

17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

 

So god cursed them both with death.

 

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

 

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
    through painful toil you will eat food from it
    all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
    and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
    and to dust you will return.”

 

So god was good to his word, inflicting death upon Adam and Eve, just as he proclaimed in the law he placed upon them.

 

This post answers both of your questions with adequate clarity for you to understand exactly what I mean, Edgarcito.

 

You should now be in no doubt about who did the tricking (the serpent) and who was tricked (Adam and Eve).

 

You should also be in no doubt how god applied the full extent of his law upon Adam and Eve.

 

With these issues settled, we can now move on to my next questions to you.

 

These follow.

The overall disingenuousness of biblegod in the Adam and Eve story has been brought out time and time again. 

 

I suppose biblegod didnt trick Abraham/Isaac either?

 

Biblegod showed his lovvvvvvvvve to humanity by drowning most of them. 

 

Edgar wants to spend eternity with this entity for some reason.

FULL DISCLOSURE

 

When I began posting in this thread on March 27 I was of the opinion that god had tricked Adam and Eve in Eden.

 

But my opinion has changed in the light of further thought about events in Eden.

 

On Thursday April 8 I signalled my change of mind by declaring a new understanding of the text of Genesis.

 

I would like to personally thank Edgarcito for using the word 'Law' in the title of this, his thread.

By doing this he sent me in a new direction of inquiry into the storyline of Eden.

My new understanding is the result of looking at the events in Eden from a legal viewpoint.

As a result of doing this I now see and understand more about the following.

1.  Why the serpent elected to speak to Eve and not Adam.

2.  What the serpent knew about Adam and Eve before speaking to her.

3.  That the serpent was able to trick them into disobeying god without causing them to act in a knowingly evil way.

I'm happy to share this understanding with everyone, here in this thread.

Thank you.

Walter.

 

So, in my exchanges with Edgarcito today I state that Adam and Eve were tricked by the serpent and not by god.

 

To bring my earlier posts into line with my new understanding I have gone back and edited them.

 

I have removed the words 'trick' or 'tricked' when talking about anything to do with god in Eden.

 

Scripture clearly say that the serpent was the trickster and I agree with this.

 

Thank you.

 

Walter.
