Why did the God create the world and human being?
This question was haunting around my mind after I read Genesis. Then I got an answer from the first line of the poem “The Creation” written by James Weldon Johnson. The answer is “lonely”. Since the God feel lonely by himself, he created human being, which is similar to himself, as a companion. At the same time, he built the world as the playground for human being.
Did God really love human being?
God told Eve: “You shall not eat of ...view middle of the document...
” Actually God lied to Adam and Eve and what the serpent said to Eve is the truth: they were not going to die but become smart by eating the fruit of the tree of life.
Obviously, the God didn’t want human being as powerful as him. Just by seeing what he said after he knew Adam and Eve had eaten the life fruit “Then the Lord God said, ‘See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever’”
The evidence above makes us confuse about the God. If the god didn’t like human why he create it? If he like human, why he punish them so seriously just by a small mistake?
The only answer I can imagine is that the God consider human being as his pet. A pet mostly love its master unconditionally. The God feel lonely and what a pet, but he didn’t want the pet as smart as him so that to lost control of it. And the pet is not adorable at all if it become as smart as its master.
So, did the God love human being? I think yes, the God love human being as same as the human being loves their dogs.
*There are two more questions that are interesting. I want bring these two question to our class.
Why did the serpent know the secret of the tree of life?
“Then the Lord God said, ‘See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil;” Who are “us”?
