You may want to read first an article on faith.
It was so from the start. God the Creator of all things and the fully in charge one; the sovereign over all of His own creation God does not have a dementia, does He? Before Alzheimer ever was He is.
The no-nonsense God is mine and I’d like to introduce Him to you as such.
Where do we begin?
Of course, He wanted us to eat of the Tree of Knowledge because choices are only possible in the presence of contrasts.
“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.”
Logically speaking she did not see it before. Why? The tree was not yet desirable until Nechash (a beast of the field, Hebrew word: HAYAH, a created by God animal) spoke with a legible voice, just as Balaam’s ass did in Numbers 22.
The same God who had anointed Nebuchadnezzar (the king of Babylon) for no other purpose but to exile Judah to Babylon had also removed his human mind and gave him a mind of an ox. Then again God gave back the king his mind thus showing him who really was, is and always will be the boss – the Sovereign over all of His creation God.
