I have a lot of trouble believing people really truly believe this. In the same breath you claim Gods glorious loving forgiving control over what happens. But then say we have free will lol free will to only sin?............... right? the fact people still fall for this barbaric ways and worshiping is what would please a God is very hard for people like me to take serious. The story of the garden of Eden is an edited version of the tablet of creation from ancient Sumer thousands of years before the bible was written. Before Moses, and yet the bible decided to leave out key parts that contradict the ways these beginning days were laid out. Again because this info is purposely ignored still to this day after more scientific proof to back up earlier stories of civilization. Again make it very hard to take religious beliefs serious anymore.
I am sorry to be saying it, I was raised from birth to 20 years old living a protestant born again christian lifestyle. So trust me when I say to you I have lived both sides and I am awake. See you in the after life, we all go to the same place.
