I don't view the fall of man as a mistake.
You see therein lies your problem, you don't take a Biblical perspective on things.
God does not make mistakes, there is nothing outside his purview
The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
God knows we will sin, because he made us weak, yet He gave us free will, and by it we follow the outcome he preordained. He want's us to make our own choices, so that we may come to Him in earnest subjugation.
- Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
- Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
- Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
- I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
So by not living according to His Will, you are proving Him right and mighty, as we True Christians™ already knew he was.
Please come to Jesus, and prove God correct, yet again.
