EVE & THE SERPENT!


The story of Eve eating the Forbidden Fruit ( whether apple or not, i don’t know), is  a secular story even though, i believe that the origin is from the book of GENESIS from the Bible.

When Eve opened the communications channel with Serpent, Adam was not around.

Secondly, the Serpent just said “……….hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” and my multi-great ancestress says, “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.”

With this she gave away the precise location of the tree of prohibition and the terrible consequences of  eating the fruit!

The serpent defies the warnings of God and says , “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Eve is having a good time , thinking that she’s educating herself for a better life, where she could be more knowledgeable and BE LIKE GOD!!”

Now this is where she missed the point. MERE KNOWLEDGE DOES NOT EMPOWER A PERSON, THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL TO BECOME A GOD. THE GOD WAS A CREATOR, BUT WHAT SHE ENDED UP INVENTING WAS SKIRTS AND APRONS TO HIDE HIS & HER NAKEDNESS.

KNOWLEDGE SHOULD BE ACQUIRED, BUT WITHIN MANAGEABLE LIMITS.

UNMANAGEABLE KNOWLEDGE REVEALS OUR OWN NAKEDNESS, AND INSTEAD OF DOING SOMETHING FRUITFUL WE GET BUSY HIDING OUR OWN NAKEDNESS THRU FIG LEAVES AND HIDING!!!

    I think its got to do with intent for acquiring knowledge that did her in, not the knowledge per se.
    Contrast this with the temptation in the desert, weak and weary when the same serpent gave this idea of converting stones into bread… the rejection was immediate. Knowledge of the word was used. The intent was good., hence it worked.

  2. INTENT is either attribution of a desired purpose, by the courts, based on the act of an individual or in common man’s parlance it is motive ( even though legally they are two different things).
    INTENT or MOTIVE is not attributable before the FALL OF MAN. Only with sin entering these things entered. Therefore, the comparison between pre fall Eve situation may not be the same as the one to which JESUS was subjected. Thanx for the opinion Benny.

    The legal man must be right… agreed… What do think made Eve flirt up with the tempter? Or was she so vulnerable and naive that simple nudge resulted in a fall? actually not worth discussion 🙂
