The Genesis account seems to show a picture of a Father and two children. The Father fore-warned the children of what could happen if they touched the tree of good and evil, but like children(without complete knowledge) and impatience, they wanted to be like their Father. It was to their downfall, but they made the choice to disobey the knowledge and forsake the love that that knowledge was provided with.
The account explicitly states that before they ate from the "tree of knowledge of good and evil", they didn't know the difference between good and evil. How could they possibly be expected to make the right choice, especially when the tree was called the "tree of knowledge of good and evil". Who were they supposed to believe? Someone who said it would give them knowledge of good and evil or someone who said it would kill them? And what actually happened?
They had to suffer the consequenses, they couldn't eat from the tree of life any more.
That was not a consequence. That was a punishment actively and deliberately imposed on them by God, because he didn't want the man to live forever.
Therefore they no longer were able to commune with God the way that He intended.
Apparently because he didn't intend them to be able to think for themselves. Once they had become "like God", he no longer wanted them as pets.
They became seperated from His all powerful protection and direction.
That was God's choice. He could have forgiven them. Does the almighty creator of the universe really need to wait thousands of years, then sacrifice his own son, just to forgive somebody?
They themselves chose to be "adult" (make life choices), without full knowledge.
They were created without this knowledge. The only way they could get it was from the tree. God knew this, and set up a situation where they were guaranteed to fail.
God set them out of the garden A. because He could not live beside them because of sin
Again, his choice. In my book, that would make him a bad father. Abusers often blame their victims.
and B. so that they could live the life which they chose.
They didn't choose it. They were innocents, tricked into breaking an arbitrary rule and punished severely for it.
And the rest, they say, is history.
It's nothing of the sort. It's all mythology, which is fortunate. Living in a world ruled by such a egomaniacal capricious dictator would be truly frightening.
