Might I contribute this for the panel's consideration ? Genesis shows us that The Creator loves us. In Eden, He gave us a perfect world. Nothing pleases Him more than our happiness. He longs for us and wants a close relationship with us. The Creator gave us rules to live by - which are for our protection, life, health and happiness. “And the LORD God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die’” (Genesis 2:16-17). The Creator did not create robots. He gave us free will. We (mankind) screwed it all up by our willful disobedience, which is sin. We walked away from Paradise, from Eden. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23). In spite of our turning away from Him, The Creator paid the ultimate price for our disobedience, for our sins, with the death of Jesus on the cross. The Son of God died for OUR sins. (Colossians 1:22; 1 Peter 1:19). If Jesus had not died for us, we would have to pay the full penalty (death) for our sins. Jesus said "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6) Each one of us has the choice to accept, or to reject, this Gift of Life, which is Jesus the Christ. God is Love. God is Life.
