1. But there was only one religion in the beginning, other religions exist as a way to try to disobey God.
- How could they disobey something they have no knowledge off? By your statement, are you insinuating that Judaism/Christianity is the correct religion, the the Israelite God is the true God? Proof?
2. The verse you just posted answers your question.
- So, we are in agreement that the events that transpired in Canaan is nothing but a purge done by invading forces?
3. What? You're trying to tell me that Adam and Eve were children in Adults bodies? Sorry, but that's not how it works.
- Adam may have the full capacity of an adult physically, but he is no more than a child in terms of experience.
Exactly. Adam and Eve didn't know what deceit or lying or trickery was. They were completely naive. They didn't know right from wrong. They were not warned that they would be tested etc. God left the most important decision in history to two newbies. then let "The Great Deceiver" trick them. very unfair
