If the God controls everything why he did not stop a man when he committed his first sin?
As humans, we are supposed to make our own decisions.
My take on Adam and Eve. read more
That proves god doesn't control everything. And were there such a thing as sins at that point as it would pre date religion.
Because he is forgiving, and wants us to find our own way. By the power of temptation, we can determine our fate by choosing whether to go to or stray away from the love of God. And besides, the beholder is more powerful when he pardons someone, then in elimination, for they shall live on, in order to repent and ask forgiveness, and be given another chance to make the right decision.
take the example of electric bulb, you switch it on for light but when you switch it off you dont call Darkness, it comes by itself. Just like this if you are doing good deeds you are lightning up but if you stop doing good you will start doing sin's.
God made Good Deeds, anyone who doesn't do that calls sins in his way
But who said god controls everything. God made people free and able to choose which direction they go in. There are also other forces, other powerful characters at play in the world too. But prayer and asking god to protect you from and sin and asking for the forgiveness of your sins are useful too. He can protect you but he will not stop you if you have no interest or desire to know him or understand him.
God is in control of everything; however, he does not always exercise His control. He allows man to have free will. If we didn't have free will, we would be mindless robots with a scripted life.
Our life on earth is a test to how our afterlife will be. If we did not have free will, then life would not be a test.
'God' is only a 'Spiritual Truth', which is an unchangeable and everlasting one.
Therefore, 'God' does't have any Physical or Chemical properties to control anything in the universe!
Because Adam and Eve choose freedom.
Thus, they become free.
Even God respects freedom.
For good and bad alike.
Only in rare circumstances God will interfere.
God does control everyting....He also said in His word that He will never let temptation that we can"t overcome to come our way....the way I see it....Adam and Eve could have chosen not to fail into sin and obey God but they chose not to.....if He stops us every time we want to do wrong....we will feel like slaves....so He let's us stop ourselves and it's not His faith if we don't
I agree with sir_tallest. G-d controls every atom and unit of energy in the universe and beyond. Everything our Creator does is done for the very best. Adam and Eve did have clear instruction and a choice.
What choices have you been confronted with where you could have made a more moral choice? What impact would that better choice have had on your life and the lives of others? What impact would collective right vs wrong choices have had on world history? What impact would such shared choices have on the world today?
G-d is also the Master of millions of miracles per second that people take for granted, like every cell in our bodies and what they do for us. Every heart beat is a gift and a miracle. The fresh air we breathe and the food we eat and all of the chemistry, physics and biology that brings food to our family and to our plate is a gift form G-d.
The Bible states clearly that G-d gives us the teachings and the choice to follow his statues or not. It was G-d's choice to give us that choice, to chose between what he wants us to do and anything else.
Two of the greatest deceptions of our time, are the concepts of psychological determinism and moral relativism, in the modern social sciences. But I guess believing in and acting in keeping with these world views is also a choice, right?
because he gave us free will to make and learn from our own mistakes
From the day when man first sin, God knows that we have to learn the lesson of good and evil.
It is through the understanding of what is right and wrong before we can attain enlightenment. We all are born innocent as a baby and faces the world filled with love and evil. As whether we will be succumbed by evil will depend on how we are being brought up by our parents. It is through the teaching of goodness then we can differential good between evil.
This is all part of God's plan for us to learn and understand before returning to his kingdom.
My dear friend, has God ever stopped you from doing something evil which you really wanted to do? Our wills are really something to contend with!
God does not use force he gave man free-will, the power of choice - to do good or evil
I believe he allowed the first sin to be committed as a demonstration that he gave mankind free-will. He made mankind higher than the animals and he made mankind just below the angels. He did not make us with imbedded instincts like the animals. He made us able to think for ourselves and to choose between right and wrong. He made us accountable for our choices and their consequences..
"A potential for evil by God was the cause of creation and not a by product of it."

If God knows all before it happens because he is outside of space-time - then it seems he dealt a bad hand to Adam & Eve - he wanted humankind to fall in a set-up deal?
God does not control everything, he could if he wanted to. If he did there would be no sin. He allows things to happen, we are to learn from our mistakes and God gives us free will to pick and choose our actions, good or bad.
for man can't stay and infant forever for it work. you can control everything around your child but still the child will do what it want as they get older and learn more.. Matt in Jax and akuigla answers can finish the rest for they hit it right on.
Free will. People have free will to make their own life heaven or hell.
God does not control, but he chastises like a father to his own here on earth and he will judge those that chose satan on Judgment Day, Christ's Body will not be judged, which true Christians are. So many are affected by sins of the first made but I am sure it is all in the plan, but your choice decides your life and your eternal life.
Man is free to make his own choices. He is taught to make good choices so that when his time comes, he will be accepted into heaven and rewarded for his good deeds.

Why did God create man?God created everything. Man did not ask for life, god gave it to him. Was it to see what man, created in his own image and given free will would get up to, like in an ant farm?God is great, all powerful and unimaginable. Yet he created man in his own image, with...

The Bible says that all one has to do is ask for forgiveness. Now being that, do you think that Satan might have already asked God for forgiveness? Now before you rattle off scripture.....I don't believe...but I could be wrong....that the Bible has nothing to say on that.
