Sorry, but free will doesn't cut it for me. If god created them as perfect beings they could NOT have sinned. No matter how much free will you have, if you sin, you aren't perfect, and your creator must also be flawed since he couldn't insure perfection in his creations. And if Yahweh KNEW that his creations would be imperfect and sin, and that he would have to consign them to hell, he is neither a good nor loving god. He should have not created them in the first place and spared his "children" from hell. Any REAL theories about how ANY of this could line up with the good and perfect god that christians keep burbling about?

I assume the way a straight person can choose to be gay or a gay person can choose to be striaght...LOL Just kidding, one cannot choose to do something completely outside of thier nature because once they do it they've just dissproved that it was outside of their nature to begin with, hope that made sense.

To be perfect means to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, and minds. Free will may cause us to look, see, and hear things we ought not to - and it may even lead us to act on things we know we should not. However, perfection also means that we know we did wrong and seek to rectify our actions. Adam and Eve immediately knew they had done wrong in disobeying the one thing God told them not to do, but it did not keep them from admitting it and thereby gaining God's forgiveness and remaining "perfect" in His eyes. Your eyes, witchqueen, are not perfect and they are not the eyes of God. You are not a Christian. Your mocking means nothing except a loud clanging noise that borders on annoying.
