I am mentally drained with one question only, and I ask this while looking up toward heaven. "WHY? Why like this?" I started reading Genesis yesterday, one verse at a time, and really trying to figure out why we are even in this boat we are in. The only chapter I really enjoyed was chapter 1. It seems like everything turned to sh*t after the Garden of Eden was added. In chapter 1 it says God saw that it was good after each thing he made. He seemed really happy about all of it. It even says in verses 29 & 30 that he gave EVERY tree and herb for food. There weren't any rules thrown in to govern anyone. Then all of a sudden he purposefully creates a greater place to live, "The Garden" and suddenly everything starts getting complicated. He then becomes "the Lord God" instead of just "God".He made a fruit that could give people the added sense of "good and bad". HE MADE THIS but then told Adam and Eve they couldn't go near it. Why would he do that? And secondly, chapter 3, verse 1 says "the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made." Was there a reason Satan chose a serpent to talk through instead of a bird? Did God plan all of this to begin with? I want some sincere comments on this and would appreciate it if any sarcastic posters would find another thread to write their comments on.
