When I get to heaven , I’m going to ask God many things, but the one question that bugs me the most is knowing the answer to, “When Adam and Eve sinned, why didn’t you just start over? Wipe them away and start again? If you knew the future, then why did you not think it better to have prevented all the horrible things sin was going to bring and cause to so many of Your beloved children, by trying again? Wouldn’t you have rather turned only two back to dust, rather than let all the suffering for thousands of years go on?”
Adam and Eve could have been turned back into dust before they even knew what God was doing….
It confuses me, and yes I know, we are to lean not on our own understanding, but on every word of God… However , God allows us to question and learn and consider, we just have to be careful not to let that take us to the path of non-belief in Jesus.
I suppose one scenario could be because, who wants to destroy their children, even if they are defected in some way? But sin is considerably the worst defect to have! Most people wouldn’t abort their babies by knowing before hand that the baby would be born deformed, or challenged in a significant way.
Yet, in my mind it seems possible that, that logic is more sympathetic than cruel. Please understand me, I often think of both sides of things and usually don’t have one stance or another on an opinion, especially an opinion! So, I have contemplated many times the pros and cons of both options.
I for one would not have the heart to watch my child suffer with a deformity all their life…. or mine… Possibly, this is why God gave me two healthy children… He knew it could destroy my spirit….
I just can’t wait to get to heaven and ask God these questions that I’m truly desiring to know the answers to…. And I have so many….
