  • If the biblical god exists, then yes.

    If the biblical god exists, then that god created everything, knows everything, including the future, and plans everything. Therefore when his creations, whom he created with a destiny, sin, their sinning was pre-planned and already known and must have been a part of their creation as well. God created the sin that his creations commit and god was well aware of this at their creation.

  • Biblical God, yes.

    If God is as He is depicted, and everything happened according to the Bible, then definitely. God knowingly created Lucifer - He knew everything Lucifer would do, including tempt Humans when God created them. After He created Lucifer, He created the world, etc., etc. He knew upon creating Adam and Eve what Lucifer would do, and what they would do. If He did not know, then he is not all-knowing. But He did, and He created them anyway. That is the flaw. There cannot be free will if God already knows. He knew Sin would be released, and He knowingly allowed it, especially when He created Adam and Eve. Therefore, yes, I do believe He intended for Adam and Eve to sin. He let there be a tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, knowing Eve would taste the fruit and then give it to Adam. He knew they would do it and placed the tree there anyway, and created them anyway.

  • God knew we would sin

    That's why Jesus died on the cross for us to forgive us of our sins in the future so we would not be killed we just have to ask for forgiveness of our sins when we do sin and he will forgive us god is the only one and will be the only one that will ever be perfect

  • If nobody is perfect then we dont have the ability to be perfect.

    Each religion is a day late and a dollar short. All throughout history we have been sinning because we dont know any better. Without knowing what is wrong its impossible to avoid doing it. Even with religion we cant be perfect because if we could be perfect then someone would be perfect of course and you wouldnt be able to say with absolute certainty when someone is born that they will be severely flawed. Furthermore god sent an innocent being to die for our sins so the threat of punishment is no longer a means of prevention of sin thanks to the christian god.

  • God does not want us to sin

    The reason that we sin and God doesn't stop us from sinning is because He wants us to have free will. Imagine, it wouldn't be right if God just controlled us like robots and tell us whatever He wants us to do. Satan/Devils want us to sin, not God. The Temptation is always forcing us to do bad stuff and sin.

  • If you know the Christian God, you know this question is not logical

    God loves mankind, but he hates sin. Why would God create mankind to sin and then have to make the effort to fix mankind from the damage caused by sin.

    I could compare this idea to the recent Volkswagen scandal. They put defective products on the market, which they now have to recall and fix at great expense.

    But by the actions of Satan, sin entered the world. All of Mankind is viewed as two states by God: a single entity and as individual components of that entity.

    The truth is that scope of time, mankind has not been in existence for very long. So when God refers to people as children it's because Adam is still a child.

    "Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created." Newer versions of the Bible replace the word Adam with man or mankind or human, but those word are simply what the name Adam means to God. In fact, the creation story is a literal event described symbolically.

    What Satan did was nothing short of child abuse. He knew there was supposed to be a period of time for Adam to acquire knowledge of why he was created; who God, Christ and the Spirit are and their individual roles; the holy angles and so on.

    Eventually we would have eaten from both the tree of good and evil knowledge and the tree of life . We would become more like God, Christ, the Spirit, the holy angles and so on. Adam needed to grow up a little, literally. We were not ready for the fruit of good / evil knowledge.

    A few years ago a video went viral of a three year old boy smoking cigarettes. Just about everyone agree that was nothing short of child abuse, because his little body was still developing.

    Imagine letting a little kid get addicted to alcohol, drugs, or even worse... Well, we know how sexually abused kids become screwed because they have been exposed to something they were not ready for.

    Mankind is screwed up, that screwed upness is called sin.

  • God did not intend to.

    C.S Lewis made an excellent illustration of how something can be against your will, and yet still you permit it.

    "But anyone who has been in authority knows how a thing can be in accordance with your will in one way and not in another. It may be quite sensible for a mother to say to the children, "I'm not going to go and make you tidy the schoolroom every night. You've got to learn to keep it tidy on your own." Then she goes up one night and finds the Teddy bear and the ink and the French Grammar all lying in the grate. That is against her will. She would prefer the children to be tidy. But on the other hand, it is her will which has left the children free to be untidy. The same thing arises in any regiment, or trade union, or school. You make a thing voluntary and then half the people do not do it. That is not what you willed, but your will has made it possible."

  • NO - That was not his original purpose for mankind. --Soon he will bring conditions back to the way they were in the beginning.

    The first humans, Adam and Eve, were sinless in the beginning.
    That is because they were created perfect, in God’s image. (Genesis 1:27)
    However, they lost their perfection by disobeying God. (Genesis 3:5, 6, 17-19)
    When they had children, they passed on sin and imperfection as inherited defects. (Romans 5:12)
    This will all be corrected soon.
    If you want to know how -you can message me.
    (I didn't want to post a lot of information--if you weren't really interested.)
    I like to share viewpoints if it is done ---in a friendly way.

  • The Concept of free will allows but does not require sin.

    I agree that God was aware that his creation would sin as he is all knowing. However I must contest that he intended this to happen. God created man with free will, that is the opportunity to do what we please, and to know the outcome does not mean that he in anyway affected the result. Adam and Eve had the chance to resist sin but gave in leading to the fallen human nature that we now know.
