We are going to dive right in and pick up where we left off a week ago. We were talking about Adam and Eve’s partaking of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Let’s recap a few lines from the end of last week’s discussion.
Adam's face is filled with puzzlement as he hears the serpent say to Eve, "You shall not surely die. For the Lord knows that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Thoughts race through his mind.
What does being gods have to do with anything? We have fellowship and intimate friendship with the Lord God, our Creator, even now. We have been given dominion over the earth, and over every creature that walks upon the earth. There has been nothing withheld from us. Do we need something that He has not given us? We have been created in the likeness and image of the Lord God. Are we not "as God" even now? Hmmmm.............what is good? For that matter, what is evil?
