I too believe that these are lessons and not literal. There were 2 'eves' the first was Lilith who asserted she's an equal. After she left, God gave a 'more compliant' "does what she's is told 2nd Eve" And she did what she was told. Inequality = fail

Bunk! You speak from ignorance and blindness.
You do touch on some spot of truth when you mention the selfishness of some (most?) Christians. The problem isn't religion, but Ego, and everyone was burdened with that in the Garden

To clarify, don't agree with the wiki chart.
Good job ignoring the subject at hand and moving on to your testimonial. Nice effort. Unfortunately, christianity does not allow free will (assuming you have an interest in what we call "heaven"). Sorry to disappoint.
Justin Earick, didn't ignore the subject, I clearly said I don't agree with the Wiki Chart. Agenda suspicions like yours are the musings of conspiracy theorists.

How about consensual homosexual relationships? No good can come from a homosexual pretending to be content in a hetero-normative relationship which cannot be satisfactory by very definition.
Exactly so if that person feels in their heart it's what they want, then they are right..The homosexual would be lying to himself, if he was with a woman so he should use his free will to choose..He shouldn't be bothered what "other" people think.
Dave36 - you hit the nail on the head. The individual must choose their path. If that path is truth then positive good is the reward. But when that path is lies, then negative is the result. Pretending bad is good is in reality a lie.
Your right tbHistorian about positivity, & if a person puts nothing but positivity out there..They'l start getting it back, but from different sources than the "causes" would suggest they should..Only, if their doing it for the right reasons thou

I should say that when i say book, i'm not referring to the bible....What i mean't was i could read something, but that's not realising something..Seeing/doing/investigating something iv'e read would lead to realising something, but not just reading.
