I have always been struggling with the thought of “How can a good God send someone who is His own creation, His own love, His original personal relationship, to a place that is His own creation for eternal damnation and punishment.” (whew that was a mouthful)
After all don’t you think that God would have created a being that was made for His own enjoyment and have that being be obedient to the point that this so called sin would have never entered into the picture. Does this seem impossible? Of course not, God can do anything He wants.
God created Adam with a personal free will. This free will allows for choices to be made outside and inside God’s will.
If God created Adam without a free will then we would not have a choice of loving Him. God gave us an example of this when He gave us His son.
