God isn't perfect?

If you believe the story of Adam and Eve and God giving free will which led to sin which led to disease,illness,homosexuality, murder and every other bad thing in the world, how can you say God is perfect?

God is perfect and all knowing so he should have been perfect enough to know what free will would lead to. Are you saying he knew what free will would cause and still decided to create it anyway?

If it was on accident that the sinning happened, he is not perfect. If it was on purpose, he is not loving and kind and made a big mistake.

  • I personally (from my study of the Bible) do not believe God knew what Adam and Eve would do,
    I believe God can chose to not look at the future and therefore love Adam and Eve without the knowledge that they would chose to reject him as their Law Giver and Ruler.
    I don't believe in Predestination, how could God say EVERY man out of any Nation who works righteousness is acceptable, or that everyone who puts Faith in Jesus would be saved if he KNEW that not everyone could......?

  • God knew Adam and Eve would sin but to not create them because of this would take away their gift of free will.

  • God is perfect, he created man knowing he would make mistakes and grow and learn and evolve and then bring the information to him.

  • Free will is not a gift if it means sin, disease, murder and eternal damnation.

  • Anon, if he is perfect doesn't that mean he would already have infinite knowing? Why would he need information if he is perfect?

    By saying he knew it would happen. Doesn't that mean he is not loving and caring?

  • He gave us that free will to choose between heaven and hell. He already knows what will happen when it will happen...If he didn't create them, where would you be now??
    God is perfect!! God is good!!

  • You have a good point, anon. Unfortunately, logic does not speak to the religiously zealous.
