For those who see this event as depicting the "wrath of God", they do not see the question raised by the young people clearly. If this was truly the wrath of God, would God not have supplied a greater punishment?
The essence of the event is that once and only one time in scripture do we learn of God walking on the earth with all of its beings - in a time when the world was without sin. There is no punishment passed along to us. Just the removal of the possibility of God walking with us here on earth.
God gave Adam and Eve the chance to eat the apple ...and they ate it he could no longer remain in the world due to their sin. We now live in that time of separation from God until the new heaven and perfect earth appears - God's future kingdom. Then we will once again walk with God.
One man has brought on evil, pestilence and disease. But God remains in control and sent his son, Jesus, to take on the "wrath", as some of the youth see it, of a fallen world. God sent his son so that our world can be whole again. Trust God. He sent his son to show us he is a God of love not of wrath. He wants to clearly show us that love. We need to open our eyes to see it. It is all around us ... even for people who have no exposure to God's word. It is demonstrated in the wonders of this beautiful, wonderfully created earth.
