Before you read my post, here are a few things that I demand
You will have a basic understanding of what you're talking about.
You will not engage in intellectually dishonest tactics (dodging, lying, et cetera).
You will not use fallacies (strawman, begging the question, et cetera).
If you do not comply, I will not
reply to you, unless a mod tells me to or if I feel like it.
Way back at the beginning of the thread entitled God Lies, lucifer tells the truth, you stated:
The snake was Satan aka Lucifer fallen from Grace/Heaven,
As you can plainly see on the very first page of that thread, someone directed me to another post which explains the origin of that mistake. However, let's ignore that for now and assume that the snake is Satan.
Satan is not Lucifer. Lucifer is a title attributed to an angel, a king and even Jesus himself.
The first one is just a random angel, the second is the origin of the "Lucifer=Satan" mistake and the third is... well, it's Jesus. Last I checked, Jesus is supposed to be one of the good guys
however my NIV and American Standard do not render the verse as you have. Mine simply says you will die. . Which they did.
Can you prove that the NIV is better than my mom's?
Assuming you can, Genesis 3:3 (NIV) says:
but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
Last I checked, they touched it, ate it and died almost a thousand years later. However, even if we ignore that God said that when they touched it
they would die, here are a few more inconsistencies:
Adam and Eve were perfect.
To be perfect one must only be able to do good.
God told them that they would die when they ate from the tree.
The snake told them that they would not die; rather that they would know the difference between good and evil, and thus be like God.
Eve saw that it was OK to eat from it and wanted to learn (thus proving that knowledge is good).
They realized that they were naked and covered themselves (thus proving that being naked is bad).
God punished them for the two previous things (thus proving that God punished them for doing the right thing; thus proving that God is not good).
