The traditional LDS reading of Genesis 3 suggests that Eve made the necessary decision so that God could “bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”  If this is the case, why doesn’t God indicate his pleasure?  And why does he make her subject to Adam, who apparently failed to exercise the divinely desired initiative?  I mean, since past performance is the best indication of future success you’d think that he’d want the best decision-maker to have a decisive role in any future dilemmas, no?

I gotta say, the LDS reading makes God’s judgment suspect.
