If God created the Humans in his image, doesn’t that mean He is the original sin? – Mikkel Sørensen

October 23, 2008

I was sitting in a religion class, listening to the dull subject of Fall of Man, when a classmate read from the Holy Bible itself.

Now the serpent was more subtil any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.

This single sentence is quite interesting. God had made the serpent that lured the naïve Eve to eat a fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Why did God create a serpent – residing in the Garden of Eden – well-knowing that its intention was to pursaude Eve to eating the fruit? And why did God create Humans with the free will to eat of the tree keeping the fact that God didn’t want Adam and Eve to eat the fruits in mind?

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The next question is, why doesn’t God want Adam and Eve to recognise good and evil?

My conclusion of this were that if God created Humans in his image, to be pursauded by the subtil serpent he created in his image into eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, he must be the original sinner, but blamed the Humans.
