At first glance, the story of Adam's demise in Genesis 3 seems slightly unfair. It is unbecoming, and to many downright despicable, to call into question the nature of God. As the newcomer continues reading through the remaining 66 books of the traditional canon it is assured to prove God sure and true. There are times however, and chapter 3 of Genesis is no exception, when the nature of God seems to be as Rich Mullins once observed, "Like the kid who beats you up and then gives you a ride home." In the same manner of reasoning, Adam's fate seems to call God's true nature into question.
