** He wasn't even 'dead for three days' - assuming he died on the evening of Good Friday and was resurrected some time on the Sunday morning, that makes at most a day and a half.

** It was literally an AssPull from HammerSpace. Cain found his wife in another land -- the first mention of him ''having'' a wife is after he drifted away, and there's no mention of him drifting away ''with'' anyone at all. Genesis 4:16-17:
--> So Cain went out from the LORD's presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
--> Cain made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch.

* Something that has [[HeadScratchers made me scratch my head in confusion]] is a particular passage in Matthew 8:14. Having grown up Catholic, this passage stands very clearly about something taught in Catholicism. It says (according to KJV) "And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever." As a Catholic, I was taught Peter never had a wife. But here is this passage as clear as day saying that Peter does in fact have a wife somewhere.

***Yes it is. Its about personal thoughts of Solomon and his development of faith. You can compare his statements to apocryphal "Wisdom of Solomon".

*** This is a blatant lie. it doesnt impose it on humans and never did. It's about personal thought of Solomon[[note]]who we are contractually obligated to tell you that wasn't a most believing person in history, Ecclesiastes practically describing his earlier atheistic tendencies and he sacrificed to idols[[/note]] himself and entire book of Ecclesiastes is about his struggle with faith.

[[folder: Was Free Will God's decision? Or Satan's meddling?]]

It seems to be pretty explicit that in the scriptures, God's not exactly a 'big fan' of his creation [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill answering back and doing as they please]]. He's quick to punish those who go against his will.

Now, many theists have argued the opposite, that Free Will comes from God's own omniscience, he does not want robots for creations, and he respects our choices. If this were the case, he would not have labelled any perceived transgression against him as "Sin" and reward it with death. He would not be surrounded by Angels who tend to his every whim [[YesMan for fear of swift exile from his presence if they don't obey]]. If he respected Free Will, we would not go to Hell, but rather, like the Prodigal Son asking for his inheritance, we go wherever we choose, for better or for worse.

This begs the question - why even have Free Will at all if its pointless at best, or results in immediate consequence at worse? If he doesn't approve of our decisions, then was this Satan's own doing in corrupting Adam and Eve somehow? Aka "original sin"?

*** Disproportionate maybe, but not fair. Heaven and hell apparently operate under the same kind of reward punishment system. Everyone who goes to heaven is treated with the same kind of reward an infinite amount of pleasure even though not everyone there has done the same amount of good. So yes, one's treatment in the afterlife is not a direct measurement of the amount of good or evil that done in their life. He simply sees it as those who follow his way and those who don't. It's like school yout either meet the standard or you don't simple as that. God has no obligation to create a third destination since no one dirctly benefits from it except the people who don't follow his way.the afterlife is simply a pass or fail system.
