The Bible: Did god know that Adam and Eve would disobey him and eat the forbidden fruit of knowledge?Posted by: briantheliberal
If yes, then he wanted them to eat the fruit and is therefore fully responsible for the existence of sin and the evil actions committed by man, which makes him evil as well. If no, then he is not an "all-knowing" being, and is therefore not worthy of being called "God" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m0YYy9lqqs
Yes. God knew they would disobey him.
No, God did not know they would disobey him.
It was still Adam and Eve's choice to disobey him. It's like if I said "If you don't study for the test you'll fail" and you do not study for the test. I'd know your failure would come as a result but it was still your choice not to study.
it was to wstablish true free will. To have true free will and follow god of your own volition it is necessary for this to happen. obviously its all a metaphor though
God knows everything. The future eating of the apple is a thing. Therefore God knew the eating of the apple would happen. QED.
1. The Lord is all knowing 2. If they hadn't eaten the fruit thy never would have become fully mortal and would likely have just continued living (without reproduction) in eden forever. I like to think of it as this... The Lord hilariously tricked Saten into screwing himself over. If they hadn't had kids nobody else would come here and be saved and sent to heaven. Saten effectively ruined his own plan.
Didn't he always know everything, or is that just atheist propaganda?
Of God knew they would disobey him. All is as it was meant to be. If you love something let it go. If it comes back to you it is yours. If it does not then it never was. God did not want us to be slaves to him. He wanted us to come to him willingly!
God made the mistake of Free Will.
