Why does God allow humans to be put through numerous tests during a lifespan The first human beings Adam and Eve were put to a cruel test When Yaweh God created the world he told Adam and Eve that they were allowed to eat from any tree they wished However the only loop- hole was that they were not allowed to eat from the tree of knowledge and the tree of life Yaweh God was extremely malicious in that he placed these trees in the middle of Eden Genesis 29 If God were omniscient why would he need to place the tree in the middle paradise Is it plausible that Yaweh God wanted Adam and Eve to eat the fruit to gain knowledge Or did he place the trees in the middle of paradise as only a test Before eating the forbidden fruit of knowledge Adam and Eve were as innocent as babies Nevertheless soon after eating from the tree of knowledge they noticed their nakedness and clothed themselves shamefully Genesis 3 6-7 This strikingly relates to humans as babies who are so nave that they do not know of their nakedness Yet when they mature and gain the knowledge through their parents and their peers they become shameful of their nakedness In essence children lose their innocence following the acquisition of knowledge Knowledge is a powerful tool Without it we would be roaming this earth as babies unknowing the difference between right and wrong In Jewish belief Yaweh God is said to be semi omnipotent semi omniscient and semi omnipresent Even so is it plausible that Yaweh God believed that Adam and Eve would pass his test and not eat the forbidden fruit This concept is highly controversial In Genesis Chapter 1 verse 26 God exclaims Let us make man in our own image in the likeness of ourselves Likewise in Chapter 3 verse 5 the serpent proclaims That your eyes will be opened
