Yep. That's something I've been saying for years now. People are under the mistaken impression that God cursed Adam and therefore them. What that results in is a mad god who is out to get them if they don't do what he wants.
That is most assuredly not the God of the Bible! It is not the portrayal of Jesus that we see in the Gospels.
Now, don't go the opposite extreme and create a Santa Claus god. God is still righteous and holy, but he is first and foremost love. I like to tell people that the attributes of God include holiness and righteousness, but his essence is love.
