[QUOTE]Originally posted by forgiven:
it's my belief that (for free will reasons already stated) the fall would have occurred at some later time and place... it's my belief that this would result in God's goals being realized after even more time and evil... it's my belief that this episode was necessary for man's eventual salvation, because unless an awareness of what "for all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory" meant, man would persist in his view that he can save himself... [/B][/QUOTE]
I like how you explained all this forgiven. I just wanted to add that this event also happened in order that man would be without excuse. We can never say to God, "Yes well, if you hadn't made things so tough here, then I could have easily trusted and obeyed you." This event in history shows that just isn't true.
