The Truth About Adam and Eve
While studying the book of Genesis, I received an epiphany when I read Genesis chapter 3. Please read Genesis chapter 3 and tell me what the problems are wit Sky Eden@Bedok Price h Eve. The problems are regarding the things she did leading up to her eating the fruit of the forbidden tree and disobeying the Word of God. Remember, Eve knew what God said through what Adam told her, however, she decided she knew better after talking with the serpent. According to the Bible book of James chapter 1 verse 14- 15: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. “Remember, Eve could not be deceived by the serpent according to James 1:14-15 and in fact, Eve was tempted by her own lust. Read it and let me know what your thoughts are.
You see, Adam told Eve not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, she purposely began to figure out in her mind, why? “Why not eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?” This is where Genesis chapter 3 verse 1 kicks in: the spirit of evil that was already upon the earth began to speak to her and make subtle suggestions to Eve. Now the serpent knew that he could not get Adam to listen to his suggestions, but Eve, she was another story. Have you watched the old Eddie Murphy movie remake “Dr. Doolittle”? Imagine a serpent talking to Eve as stated in Genesis Chapter 3 verses 1-5 and Eve talking back to the serpent.
The serpent says: “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Now that was a lie, because that was not what God told Adam and not what Adam told Eve.
Instead of Eve just ending the conversation and running back to Adam to tell him that the serpent lied to her, she wanted to talk about what she was told by Adam with the serpent.
Eve said: “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.”
The serpent knew that Eve thought about the tree of knowledge of good and evil so he gave Eve what she wanted. The serpent told Eve that she would be like gods knowing good and evil.
