Question about .. God's original plan ?
People talk about man's original sin, but what about God's original plan ?
"And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:' - Genesis 3:22
What do you understand from God's behavior and reaction ? what do you think God's original plan according to his own actions in this story ?

God's original plan never was to have mankind go through all of this. If adam and eve had of obeyed The Lord God would have showed them the thing about sin in His own way. Good and Evil, Sin was a secret that Only God was to understand. In Isaiah 14:12-14 satan is the original sinner, that is all sin started with him and in Revelation 20:14, 21:8 satan and sin will be forever destroyed. God's Original plans have been side tracked but Nothing and no one will stop God's plans, And His plans include you. For God [The Father] "SO" Loved that He gave...John 3:16. The first three books of Genesis tells us how it started the last three books of Revelation tells us how it Shall end. However if you read those last three chapters those who put there faith in The Lord wins. Want to know more free bible lessons www.vop.com God bless take care.Source(s): The Holy Bible

God did not want Adam and Eve to have any knowledge of the concepts of good and evil. He rather wanted them to come to him with all their concerns and problems so that HE could then tell THEM what to do.
The knowledge of good and evil is the root of all sin. That is precisely why God told Adam TO LEAVE THAT TREE ALONE!
Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gods original plan was for mankind to live in a beautiful paradise earth under perfect conditions. Genesis 1:27,28
The bodies of the first humans were created perfect, so they would not get sick, grow old, or die. They were also endowed with other qualities, such as that of free choice. The way they were made is explained at Genesis 1:27: "God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them." Adam passed on sin to all his children. That is why we also grow old, get sick, and die.
God commanded Adam: "From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die." (Genesis 2:16, 17) So eternal life for Adam and Eve was conditional; it depended upon their obedience to God.
Tragically, however, Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s law. (Genesis 3:1-6) In doing so, they became sinners, for "sin is lawlessness." (1 John 3:4) As a result, Adam and Eve no longer had the prospect of eternal life. Why? Because "the wages sin pays is death." (Romans 6:23) Thus, when pronouncing sentence upon Adam and Eve, God said: "Dust you are and to dust you will return." Our first parents were then expelled from their Paradise home. On the day that they sinned, Adam and Eve began the slow but steady process of dying.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
God didn't have an "original" plan that He suddenly had to swap out for "plan B" because He didn't know what was going to happen.
God allowed Adam and Eve to "become like God" in the sense of increased knowledge of good and evil even though He know that they couldn't handle this knowledge and it would lead to dire consequences for the human race.
God's plan has been to provide a family to give to His Son that would be like Him although not divine.

it somewhat is a secret - are you able to artwork it out? God is all understanding. He is acquainted with His plan and how it relatively is going to all prove - each and every little bit of it....yet He supplies guy loose will to come to a decision directly to flow this sort or that... How can that be? i understand our finite brains can in no way totally understand the countless greatness of God, yet i think of it has to do with the undeniable fact that God is undying (with out restraints of time and area) so what is going to take place the next day is already in His understanding via fact he's likewise present in "the next day" and "next year" and during eternity. it is only how my little innovations thinks on the problem - no Biblical foundation for it in any respect. yet i understand that God is basic, continually. If He has referred to as you, and you screw it up, it does not UNcall you. you only get some classes on your adventure. "All issues artwork jointly for the stable of people who love God and are the referred to as in accordance to His purpose." All issues - even the mess ups. arise and brush it off and shop working the race! reward.

The original plan is what is. God created mankind to worship - love Him. He planned to send Jesus to save the lost before the creation. Some people do love and worship God. God understood and wanted us all to follow Him.
