Read your Bible. It was the serpent who instilled free will in humans by enticing Eve to eat the forebidden fruit. God's response was to instill original sin in humans as an antidote to the free will instilled by the serpent.

Short answer on Eden. There was only good God walked with men..

After Eden there was good but also evil..Judgment is left for God

Maybe in Eden the laws governing the growing of things..the birthing process..THE WHAT WE KNOW AS NATURAL LAWS..was suspended..It was heaven on earth.

Once man was cast out..the natural laws for the parts of earth that were Not heavenly.
So it was being not allowed to live like heavenly beings. Because the now knew evil..that caused the pain..caused Adam to have to work for minimal results.

Kind of like kids who don't appreciate the comforts of home..They find out WHST the real world is like...

We believe we will br back kn Eden in heaven some day..abut fir them the knowledge of evil lost them and us paradise.. God knows His ways. HE alone knows what would have been...we live with the consequences..

Some of us realizd that our longing is for Him..Some choose not to believe..EITHER WAY. ON EARTH OR IN EDEN..he gives us free choice...

HUH. that is not in any Bible I know of. THE SERPENT TEMPTED Eve YO USE the free will GOD GAVE them. Even angels have free will.God wants our love. For us to come to HIM freely. NOT be puppets with no choice..
SIn gained its origin in the garden..thus it was original sin.

IN GORBIDDING THE TREE He was trying to protect us ..We. thrum Adam and Eve thought we knew better.. We were wrong..

Actually, goofy, I never had a bad experience at a Planned Parenthood facility; all of them were very good ones. I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.
The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me.
Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got stuck with an UNWANTED pregnancy, so for me, an abortion was never necessary.
Sounds like you were really helped, so are you that much smarter then the other over 3,500 women a day that has abortions?

Why not use your voice to help planned parent hood be know for helping instead of being known as the huge provider of abortion.

What people do is their business and they must live with their choices, but most folks would feel much better living in a country where abortion was very rare and something hardly ever spoke of.

It seems to me, if all women would simply do as you did, then there would be no problem.

They don't , there is.

WELl. Obviously I don't agree about man creating God..and when I said Adam had to make s living....I meant what passed for that in the beginning..sorry if that W's not clear..
Hunt..grow food etc in a less than friendly environment...of course as more civilizatit became more complicated..THE THING is..both men and woman ate of the tree ..They now knew evil as well as the good life they had in Eden provided by God...and as with many things the civilizatiions were fraught with evil...sure they had more goods to trade etc..but amassing wealth beyond what was needed for life has always been a bane of men
AND OF COURSE YHEY FID INVENT gods...they turned their backs on the true God.
I'm not sure how childbirth would've took place before SIN entered the picture, but I'm sure it wouldn't have been painful if God said it, andvit sems we was vegitarians before as well. All they had to do was eat drink be merry :)
Now man must till the ground by the sweat of his brow, and no mattee how big his tractor is, he must still work on it or pay soneone else to. So if he eats he works. Lol

Briars, thistles, many many other things I believe come forth that was not part of Gods plan, but working hard, being honet will keep a man out of lots of problems.
Good example :if David would've went with his men, alot could have been avoided, he "chose" to stay home, and payed for it, but even then God showed him mercy and grace, forgivness :)

I think they had free will, just as we do.
They had all the needed and wanted, well mabey not wanted, and God put the "ugly" tree there. Why did He? Had He not would they have had free will. He didn't create robots.
If I cage up my little girl and she cannot get out, and I supply her with all she needs but put candy bars outside the cage and tell her they are bad for her, does she have free will?

Yet when Eve fell the sepents lies Sin still didn't enter the world, it was when adam went with the deal.
Sin is tranfered through the man.

I cannot image what all happened after Sin entered, but God kicked them out of the garden so they wouldn't live forever in their sinful state.

If everyone believed this way, then would we punish anyone?
What about child molesters -did God make them this way?
Is it helping a young girl who has an abortion? What about those who have had many? Do you think it helps or hurts her?
Many feel like adults should be able to have as much sex with as many other adults as possible, does this help or hurt them?

God would never condem a person for being as He willed for them.
He put in every person the need for Him.
Every person who came off the ark knew the power of God, but throughout the time, many chose to go a difderent way, and it could be thry were not there, so they choose to put their faith in what others say.

Science and evolution is pretty new to the world, as we know it, but it is just another deal to put faith in, unless you have film footage of the big bang, it will always be by faith.

yeah see my last post...I think possible Eden was governed bu heavens natural laws. No peon..no killing etc...but once they left it was worldly Natural laws
THE first killing was done to clothe them..since nakedness was NATURAL until they had the knowledge they got from the tree
God was telling them what would happen
Outside of Eden..not saying specifically about punishment..IMHO

Lol..NO woman PL or PC would ever deny that childhood is psi... Personslly wish men could have
every other one they sire. Would be one way to cut down on pregnancies.
I don't think women should be punished ....but the fact is. WE ARE THE ONES who have the burden of contraception..BUT I do believe that the men get a huge pass on responsibility because of being able to get the women to take care of it by doing away with their offspring..
IMHO
Any woman weak enough to cave to a man's wish that she have an abortion, would make a terrible mother anyway. IMHO.

Sorry, but I don't accept the fairy tale. I'm just as certain there is no afterlife, as you are that there is one.

Punishing all of humanity forever, for the 'mistakes' of two people, is stupid, cruel, and sadistic.

You folks can keep your God...I think he sucks.

Maybe. But the baby has its life taken away..BUT the point of that post was. The guys get that pass..The woman can go get it taken care of...HE DOESNT HAVE TO TAKD THE RESPONSIBILITY AT ALL.. "I like it hardback" blah blah..let alone STDs...Abortion on demand has let them off the hook.

The Divine is not a punisher. The Divine is a facilitator. That's what I believe, Rose, and all the "heaven" and "hell" nonsense, to me, is some of the most destructive propaganda to ever come down the pike.

Our beliefs differ greatly. And that's ok too.

Why protect us from an evil which God created? Free would have been totally unnecessary.

And that's ok, I also thought the sane thing for years.

Perhaps you believe in the fairy tale that something exploded millions or billions of years ago, or perhaps you really don't care either way and just live untill you die?

I would hate to know this world is all there is.

I really don't care either way. But I do believe wholeheartedly that this world is all there is, and we only get this one shot to make it a better place before we leave it. That's the whole point, as far as I'm concerned.

Many people created a life below sea level in new orleans, now did they create the disaster that followed?

It was just a by product of what happens when one choose to build below sea level.

People want free will, this topic alone is proof of that, but when things go bad, they want to blame God, and say how could you allow this to happen to me.
