According to the scriptures, we had an ego problem and abandoned God.
? Oh really? What was that ego problem exactly? Enough the with cryptic answers. Say exactly and fully what you mean
I assume you are talking about the fall in Eden. If so, there are at least three other problems with your assertion here. First, it wasn't we
am not mentioned anywhere in "the scriptures". Nor the gospels. Nor any book in the bible. Neither was anyone else here.
they had an ego problem, it was built in. Why did yhwh build them with an ego problem.
Third, They didn't abandon yhwh. They may have disobeyed
yhwh, but that is not the same as abandonment. It is possible to disobey an authority figure without abandoning the relationship.
You know, a lot of xians like to say the relationship between yhwh and Eve and her slow witted mate is a father- child relationship. Except I don't know any fathers who kick their kids out of the house for the first thing they do wrong
. I don't understand why yhwh, if he is all powerful
, didn't just undo the effects of the fruit and have a teaching moment.
"Look, Eve, I asked you two to not eat this fruit. It is bad for you because...being able to tell good from evil is something you are not ready for yet. This was kind of my fault for leaving you alone with the serpent and leaving the Tree within your reach. So, I'm giving the serpent a 50 year time out and I'm putting the Tree under a glass container you two cannot get through. When you are ready for it, I'll remove the glass and you have have the fruit. Until then please listen to me and please stop talking Adam into doing things he shouldn't be doing. He's not as bright as you and it's not fair to get him in trouble with you. Now, you two rascals go play."
Unfortunately, that's not yhwh. yhwh has a zero-tolerance policy with death as the punishment. Which makes no sense unless yhwh is not a just or particularly good deity.
