Why do You Think The Way You Do?

One assumption, too, is that GOD has a better grasp of what morality should entail than do humans.

Again Phat, that is NOT what the Bible says or shows, and we have covered this point repeatedly over the years.

The God described in Genesis 2&3 creates humans and does not give them the ability to know right from wrong and then punishes them when they fail to know what is right or wrong.

The God in Exodus tells the Pharoah to let His people go and then when the Pharoah agrees the God changes his mind and punishes him for the decision the God made him make.

The God doing a walk about to find out if the rumors of Sodom and Gamorrah were true needs to be lectured on morality by a human.

The God in the book of Job instructs Satan to kill Job's children and inflict Job with ills and loss just to settle a bet.

Come on. Any human that showed similar morals would be considered a monster.


But what specifically does the Bible say related to whether God or Man has the better grasp of what morality should entail?

God writes:

And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.
