I was just thinking randomly about the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil/Tree of Life"
Now I have a question.. If knowledge is frowned upon as evidenced by the punishments for seeking knowledge through the fruit on the tree (painful childbirth, banishment from the Garden of Eden, and work to sustain oneself, as well as automatic "sin" that we are born into) ~ shouldn't Christian stance be anti-education? I mean, it kinda sounds like thats what god was wanting right?? I'm not for people staying ignorant or anything, it was just another random thought.
Any alternative ideas out there?
That said, I have one more question for you:
You know how they say we are born into sin because we sinned by disobeying gods orders to not eat from the tree of life? If this makes you a sinner than isn't it only fair to say we were automatically made to be sinners since we were not only capable of disobeying but wanted to and were even attracted to this stupid tree in the first place? Free will.. Yes. But explain it to me. What's the difference between that first betrayal and the ones we do now? I DON'T see one. And I don't believe it's fair to make that distinction.. Which automatically makes god unjust and unfair from the way that I see it... I should know. I ate the fruit by being born into this world right? Feeling sarcastic and irritated.. Apologies.
