      This is called a cognitive disconnect...

      Overcoming obsession is a good thing...

      GOD CREATED EVERYTHING and everything that God made was 'perfect'
      (Sinners
      and Believers ALIKE)
      God uses sinners, as LESSONS for believers
      God knows-everything, from beginning to end for He, is The Creator, of all-things


      By this reasoning, God has planned, that some unbelievers WILL FIND Him

      Isaiah 55:11
      11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

      God's will not-mine, be done
      So how do you understand the Fall of Adam?

      Sin is an imperfection. God saw all He created and said it was good not perfect.

      Here is the Biblical answer:

      Psa 34:11-19
      Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
      What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
      Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
      Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
      The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
      The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
      The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
      The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
      Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
