I would have done things way different as God.
There is no shortage of people or devil's that think they know better than God. The Devil beat you to rebellion. He stood up before anyone else to challenge God. God must deal with his challenge first. So take a number, get in line, and then on Judgement day you can tell God how wrong he is all you want. Maybe he can convince you better than I can that he is smarter than all of us.
You have to understand that once people and devil's start posing challenges to God he is going to have a tough time satisfying everyone because each challenge will require completely different actions to satisfy the challenge and prove the challenge false. There are now countless numbers of people that challenge the way God dealt with challenge.
This may seem like a copout, but God can do whatever he wants, and no one would know. If this isn't a good idea, then how about punish the perpetrators only
How does killing someone who poses a challenge prove them wrong? People have accused God on this board as being a tyrant. How would simply killing the perpetrator on the spot prove that that person's way was not a good way?
The whole thing about us inheriting sin is a bunch of BS. We did nothing to deserve punishment for THEIR sins.
Once again. Lets make sure we don't blame anyone except God. Adam chose to go along with Eve instead of God. So you would have God just kill them? What has God proven? That he can kill someone if they go against him? Adam and Eve chose to have kids. If you can't accept the fact that man inherrited sin then you are just in denial. Man has proven himself quite evil. This goes back to what the devil posed to God. God had a perfect plan for man and man chose his own course just like the devil. God must prove the devil wrong. Man is proving the devil wrong for God. When man finally fails completely God will get his chance to show that his way works better than what the devil came up with.
If you want to blame someone for your situation, that is fine. Just make sure it is the right person. You have still yet to come up with another way for God to prove the devil wrong. Simply killing them and wiping out our memories so that we don't challenge the rebellion is a form of deception. God does not need to be a coward. He knows he is right. He has no reason to be afraid of a challenge.
