Why do you blame God for our choices? It is our choice after all, not God’s. We are the ones with the power. Whether you like it or not you have free will and you are responsible for the choices you make. God does not look on us as victims of our circumstances. That excuse will only go so far in explaining our actions. Ultimately we are responsible for what we do and God does hold us accountable for our actions.I didn't mean to imply that the disobedience of man would be inevitable, I just meant it could be a possibility. And I guess I am blaming God for our choices. He is our life-mentor. It's kinda like a homicidal maniac. At first you blame him. Then it surfaces that he was abused by his parents, his father taught him how to use his sniper rifle that he kept from Vietnam, blah, blah, blah... and you end up holding the parents partially responsible for the wacko's actions.
The consequences of being cut off from God meant that Adam did change physically. I can’t give you an exact scientific description of the process. The best analogy I can think of is pulling a fan’s plug out of the electric socket. The fan will slow down and eventually stop running. God is a source of energy and it was God’s energy that enabled Adam to continue physical regeneration and remain youthful. The reason we grow old and die is because we are cut off from the source of all life.Somehow Adam altered his biology and passed along to his descendants a genetic defect. Did Adam change his chromosomes by making the decision to eat the apple, and do our genes continue to be affected in this manner each time we are disobedient?
God makes allowances for our defective condition but he still holds us responsible for our own actions. Defective though we are we still have great power to choose what we will do. God does not treat us as victims of the world we find ourselves in. He knows we still have free will.All the more reason why god has no excuse for punishing defective humanity wouldn't you say?
But God is supposed to be omniscient!
God is omniscient and he is all knowing but he can choose not to know also. That is what he does. God deliberately does not look at the specific choices that we will make in the future. It is not because he can’t do so. He makes a conscious decision not to know. That way there can be no suggestion that our futures are predestined.So god is not all knowing after all? How does this compare to passages in the Bible claiming the opposite?
