In the age old tale of Adam and Eve God place Adam and Eve in the garden with all the trees and the one they can eat off of. But God is omnipotent and omniscient so wouldn't he have known before hand that they would eat of the forbidden fruit? Whether you believe traditionally that this was a historical event or that it's just a legend or parable meant to educate is irrelavent to my question. But I want to bring this tale into modern terms have their are so many temptations or "forbidden fruits" in the world and we have to make a choice between sin and God. But the Bible says in Matthew 17:13-14 "13—Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14—Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."
To me this suggests that most men will choose sin and hell instead of godliness and heaven. Which sounds like a dumb decision at face value but we all have our "forbidden fruits."
What I'm asking is why does God allow so many temptations into the world knowing most will choose their flesh rather than him? Is he setting us up for failure know most won't resist their flesh?
