We have had the knowledge of good and evil since Adam and Eve. Case closed.

What has that got to do with it? The point is that Adam and Eve did have the knowledge of good and evil and they supposedly passed it down to us - so we are well qualified to judge whether God is good or evil.

So if the snake were simply a plot device and all evil is within us and God is complete rather than just "good", The only real charge that we have from Him is to choose this day whom we will serve.
Right?


I don't know what any of that has to do with what I said but you're missing the biggest "if" of all - if He even exists.

But again, you're missing the real point: It doesn't matter whether God is good or evil. We can't do anything about that. What matters is the good and/or evil that WE do.

Of course, obeying evil commands from God would be evil.
