    Give me the exact verse in the bible where it is written "God played hide and seek with Adam and eve" word for word. If you found that, I will never be back in this site.... If you can't find that verse you are a loser.

    "God played hide and seek with Adam and Eve..."

    God did NOT play hide & seek, God did not hide, Adam & Eve did, Yes God knew exactly where they were at, But he wanted them to confess to the sin they committed

    No, He didn't play with them; actually, He sentenced them to death -- and that's serious! That's not God playing with humans. Genesis 3:16-19.

    That's "if he already knew where they were"; but the account says that God was looking for Adam, "Where art thou?"

    We must only read what's in there; not otherwise.

    It was said for Adam & Eve's benefit that they might come out of hiding and admit that they had sinned against God by eating the forbidden fruit.

    It wasn't a matter of being fair, it was being parent-like. Your child

    spills orange juice that you told him not to get into, and you know he's

    hiding behind the sofa. You say:

    "Where are you and what have you done?". Are you asking that question because he's missing? No, if he were missing, you would be

    calling 911 - you know exactly where he is.

    Same deal here. God wants them to come clean that the reason they

    are hiding is because they now realize they are naked.

    There is a lot more to this story that is not being taught by the

    Churches and thats a shame, because if you don't understand what

    happened in the beginning, you won't understand the rest of the

    Bible, guaranteed.

    The whole thing was a setup. He didn't let them know the difference between good and bad, then punished everyone for all time because they couldn't tell the difference between good and bad. If he were a human parent he'd be convicted of extreme child abuse and imprisoned for a long time.

    He liked to chase naked people around the garden all day and night long


    And so did the devil


    So that is why we don't like to be seen naked in public afraid of being chase again


    And not by God this time
