I just read something about Adam and Eve and am trying to find the source.
Basically it noted in the Garden that God told Adam and Eve do not eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.
Satan asks Eve is this is true. This is what Eve says:
“We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3*but 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.’”
This is not what God said. His words are:
"You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17*but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
Eve has added the “touch” which God did not forbid. This demonstrates her inherent lack of satisfaction with living in the paradise which was the Garden of Eden.
Men don’t get off the hook either. Where was Adam? Well this article points out that Adam was a coward and did not protect his wife, nor did he stand up to her and he hid from God.
What really hit me over the head was man’s natural cowardice. This is the virtue that we have to nurture as leaders of our families. (I am a guy btw)
I am hoping someone also recently read this and can provide me with the link/source.
