comment Why has God punished every human for one person's sin?
If they were made perfect surely they would not have the imperfect thought to sin? If Adam and Eve hadn't sinned, we would be naked in a garden enjoying a good life. So by them choosing to sin, God decided to change the lives of everyone of their descendants.

You say they removed themselves from God's protection, like how a child grows up. Most parents would rather protect their children than themselves, or rather their children hated them than do nothing to protect them. So by that logic many humans are better people/beings than God.

... it is up to that person to obey God or not. Through the Bible you find people disobeying God, going against God's will and yet that did not through off his plan. He's more powerful than humans, so just as the US President can decide to launch a nuclear attack on a country and the average Joe Bloggs can't, we aren't capable of making decisions that would be able to throw off God's plan, never mind that his plan will work no matter what we do.

@waxeagle, so what happened to free will then? The reason there is sin is because of human free will, God is perfect and therefore couldn't have created something sinful, so becoming sinful must have been a human decision. (IMO) His plan is not just for one circumstance, his plan works in all circumstances. Given that Adam and Eve had free will (which they must have as they sinned), they could've chosen to obey God, and then there wouldn't have been a need for God's plan for Jesus. God will tell people what he wants them to do, e.g. to go to non-Christian countries and spread his word, but....

By "However I do think God, knowing everything, including the future, would've realised that people would begin to question the Bible because it is too simply put", I meant God should have known that on day the parables would not be "satisfactory", in other words surely God should know that one day humans would be able to understand a more detailed explanation and would want one?

...the other if you decide No. God knows both branches and all the decisions that will need to be made in each branch. That way God can know everything and every outcome and yet we can still have free will. To us the number of "branches" is infinite (if you decide to hold your breath for a fraction of a second that can lead to a whole new branch for every human, so when you have billions and billions of living things as well as the randomness in nature, the number of possible outcomes is indescribable but God knows every single one, and to him it's the equivalent of us being able to count to 5

@waxeagle, imo, If a parent doesn't intend their child to grow and be a doctor they won't lock them away to prevent it. Same thing with God, he would have preferred that they hadn't sinned, but God knows everything, every decision we have to make he knows what will happen in each possible answer. Since the beginning of everything God has known every possible outcome for every possible decision including the decisions that we will never have to make. In Science , there is an idea (I seriously hesitate to theory) that when you make decision "time" splits off, one branch if you decide Yes...

I think this is the best explanation, not to take it literally, and your reasoning (that people wouldn't have understood) is also good. However I do think God, knowing everything, including the future, would've realised that people would begin to question the Bible because it is too simply put. But this answer has only one problem (unless you can explain that?) compared to the others which have a few more.

...I was comparing the baby being born with defect because of the mothers action, to someone shooting up a school because of their own action, it's not the babies fault for what they have to live with but it is the shooters fault for what they have to live with. But with Baby it is Gods fault that he made us that a mothers body will pass toxins through to the baby, being God he could have made it so that it didn't

Oh, no I don't think that!! I meant to say "No I don't think it would be God's fault if I went and shot up a school" (in other words it would be me fault). What I meant was, just because they were inspired by te holy spirit (which I agree, they were), doesn't mean they wouldn't have made mistakes or managed to avoid having their personal opinion leak into their writing...
