Genesis 3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
What a misogynistic way to look at the situation! Sure they were together because once she'd had a bite of the apple she shared it with his nibs. That's love at work.
And did he appreciate it? No way. When God kicked his butt he said, "But boss, it was the woman you left here who gave me the fruit." Sheesh! If he'd lived a bit later he'd probably have been making excuses like, "The dog ate my homework." As it was, he was pretty close to, "The devil made me do it."
I'm proud of Eve. She had the guts to try something that seemed worthwhile, even though God had told her not to do it. And, as a result, to this day we can all go to the fruit stall and buy a nice apple. What could possibly be wrong with that?
yes there were Adam and Eve .
Some say yes, others say no. Adam blames Eve for the temptation, where as Eve blames the serpent, which may suggest Adam wasn't there at the time.
Remember, the serpent was the most "crafty." He said "God said you may not eat from "any" tree in the garden?" Which is not what God said, but in this way he lures her in (the temptation).
She replies "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 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."
"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." (the sales pitch)
Then the woman does three things:-
1. She saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food
2. Pleasing to the eye,
3. And also desirable for gaining wisdom,
She took some and ate it. Within all of this not once does Adam say "No, don't do it Eve!"
However, the bible is written as a story like "Once upon a time,"Jesus speaks in parables because it is easier to swallow truth that way.
Mar 4:10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: But unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
Matt 13: 18-23 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? And how then will ye know all parables? The sower soweth the word. And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: Afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended. And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
Remember there is and always has been two teachings, one is Esoteric
(hidden knowledge) and one is Exoteric (for the masses). We live in a world of greed, of temptation, of more, more, more. It feeds pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth.There is a reason they do not want the masses to have Esoteric knowledge, because there is no gain for them.
