Who GOD is Not

ADAM and EVE GROWING UP


(Old myth transvalued for new meaning)

Does God want to reinforce this type of behavior? Would any mature parent want grown children like this?

Maybe, Love demands that we NOT save others, but rather enable them to save themselves?

Looking forward to your comments!
