ADAM, EVE AND TREE OF LIFE April 7, 2008


The traditional interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve is that they disobeyed God by eating the forbidden apple, which is the origin of Original Sin.

We need to remember that there were two trees in the Garden:

“In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”…

And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;  but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.”

Again the big question is why Adam and Eve choose the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I would choose the tree of life.

Adam and Eve ate the apple, and when God realized this, He said:

“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

It is obvious that after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Adam and Eve realize that they are naked. This is definitely one step forward in their evolution. Acquiring the knowledge of good and evil means evolving from animals to human beings. Becoming human was both a blessing and a curse. There was much to be gained from it–as the Serpent said, “your eyes shall be opened”.

How does the story of Adam and Eve ends? Are we still evolving? What is the next step?

Remember what GOD said: “He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

Can we try to taste THE TREE OF LIFE and live forever as promised by Christ?
