Question: But it said that their eyes were opened just as the serpent said and God even admitted that they had become like 'one of us.' So the serpent was not the deceiver: God was.

Answer: You, sir, are the deceiver. God never deceives anyone and to suggest that He has places you squarely on the pathway to destruction. Frankly, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near you during a lightning storm. Nevertheless, I will respond to your proposal. You have employed a typical tactic of those who deceive by omitting the crucial statement, 'You shall not die.' That was the lie. The truth was, Eve indeed would die. God warned Adam of this. Sure Satan wrapped his deception up in a nice-looking cloak of truth, but that only shows how clever he is. It in no way makes God a deceiver.
