[3:6] So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate.
If god is how you say he is and he created Eve and Adam, He would have known that they would have done so and ate the fruit. so if god really was trying to do the best for us than he would have not placed the fruit in the garden

When God created us He told us what is right and wrong and why we should avoid doing wrong thing as well as giving us free will now whether we choose to do he morally wrong things or right things that's our choice but there's a consequence for doing the wrong things.

Also when making two points try and put scripture for both of them.

Many people seem to forget that when Christianity took over the Roman Empire, Christianity in turn became Roman. This is where they added the concept of "Christ" an amalgamation of all the Gods and epic poems of the past which would lead the reader to the divine way of life - becoming God.
They also seem to forget that the Pope was replaced by the Monarchy in the protestant movement, not to mention all the other divisions that came later, each introducing new additions and revisions.

The original teachings are only followed by smaller groups such as Mandaeism.
They teach: "The cosmos is created by Archetypal Man, who produces it in similitude to his own shape."

Sounds very interesting to me that. "In the beginning there was the word and the word was God." The word is what God spoke, and who was God? In Rome it was the emperor. I think it's pretty obvious what that means.

The whole book of Genesis is stories wrote by man, about other mans stories about man. The whole thing is a contradiction.

@missmedic How do you know God changed his mind? What if God always planned to make us? How would you even know?

Where in the Bible does it say God knew 100% what Adam and Eve would do?

Definition:
All: used to refer to the whole quantity or extent of a particular group or thing.

God doesn't know the future because it hasn't happened. God knows everything that has happened and probably everything that could happen, but if something hasn't happened yet, there is nothing to know.

'If god is perfect does god need to create, if god is perfect does god need to punish?'
No, God did not need to create us, but he did.
No, he does not need to punish, but he does it to help us. Why do you think we have police officers? Parents punish their children to help them.

To believe God created this world is to go against the character of an immutable God, because that means he changed his mind from being the sole being of existence to many beings of existence.
If god is immutable, he never changes, then how can he change his mind and create?

Adam and Eve, Abraham were all tested by a being that knows all. So how is it a test if the out come is all ready known?
If god is perfect does god need to create, if god is perfect does god need to punish?
