Interesting discussion. Many of those scriptures, I had forgotten. If one is using the bible to have a scriptural discussion, good thing to know what you're talking about.
But what gets me, and always did and probably always will:
...that god or whatever supreme creature christians believe in, created this 'Adam & Eve' Perfect to become imperfect...pretty quick.
Seems to me, god is not very good at creating anything perfect, seems doomed to bungling. No warranty with god's creation.
Even the angels, I guess 'he/god' created those right? and this Satan dude, becomes tainted somehow, imperfect....Huh? I give myself a perpetual headache with that one.
IT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE to me.
Not to put a wrench in your fan folks, but I struggled with that for eons. It's still important to have these discussions, and for those who believe in the bible etc., well...you have questions and of course, you seek answers.
Those that are either existing Jehovah's Witnesses or others whom are considering, I'm hoping you'll find your scriptural answers here with the very well versed and skilled participants on this forum.
I apologize in advance if I have offended anyone, but I just had to be honest with my 2 cents worth.
