1Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”
We would learn that we could set up our own system of right and wrong, upon eating the apple. Man can be lied to, deceived, and man can be wrong and make mistakes. God is always unchanging and eternal and always just. He doesn’t make mistakes.
Man inevitably ends up with good evil and evil good and evil as good and good as evil, as Isiah said.
And bad shit happens.
