    Susan the Tree of Life was nailed to the cross but He can never be destroyed and when you get to Revelation you will read of Him again. Now the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that old serpent the devil and how pride set in can be read about in Ezekiel 31 that Assyrian has no article and it's saying in vs 3 Behold, the little box cedar and goes on to explain Satan in the garden. Ch.28 -31.
  • James Muntener
    I believe that Adam and Eve's being tempted in the Garden of Eden is a perfect example of Satan tempting people through their minds.
  • James
    I feel and believe that as a Christian if Satan can tempt Adam and Eve to step outside the will of God. He can also get people to do the same. The only way to avoid this temptation is to stay in the word of God.
  • Apelu
    This story may be real or allegorical. Either way, it shows the danger of isolation (Eve being alone) and of engaging with the devil (the serpent more subtil). It shows man's propensity to blame the woman and the woman's propensity to be beguiled. It also shows there is consequence to sin and there is mercy with God.

    Before sin, apparently mankind could communicate with animals or with the devil!
  • Christos
    1, to Yous Rasiel,,,Studying The kabbala as you advise is a search for the very thing Adam and Eve were Forbidden to have and were chased out of the garden of Eden to prevent man eating of it! , So it Must be a Sin!! As God did not allow us It in the first instance,!! 2, Susan it says skins, NOT animal skins , Perhaps he clothed us with our actual Skin , as before they were Naked,
  • Yous Rasiel
    To all of you in the discussion on the tree of life, read up on Kabbalah. That is not only the hebrew word for receive but also for tradition. It is the faith of Adam and Abraham, the original patriarchs of the faith. In that understanding of the word of God, the numerals are "blocks" and letters are "beams", which the tree of life is formed. Read Aryeh Kaplan's translation of Sefer Yetzirah.
  • Susan
    Seems like the animal skins for covering was the first animal sacrifice for sins.
    Also, the tree of Life would have been destroyed by the Flood when the entire world was covered with water.
  • JJ
    The tree of knowledge wasn't supernatural. It represented God's sovereignty like a king uses a crown or sceptre to symbolize their authority. This tree which was guarded by cherubs (Genesis 3:24) would have eventually withered away.
  • Chico
    3:22- so what happened to the tree of life? Does it still exist? Or did it go extinct with the dinosaurs? Plus, God says "became as one of us, to know good n evil" it is possible Eve didn't know the serpent was purposely trying to cause their downfall if the knowledge of evil didn't exist? And hence may not have been coerced over a period of time, as we assume?
  • Osayo
    God still made coats of skin for them.............Merciful Father

    Man's best defense against evil will be to resist having a conversation with evil. If Eve had said NO to the serpent at the very onset of the conversation , and refused to hear anything coming from the serpent , this sin will not have happened .
    Lesson learnt for me is to watch thought closely and ask myself if that on coming conversation is from God or not. I will dismiss the evil's chat.
  • James
    Man once walked with Almighty God, and was obedient. Now Adam is told to leave the garden and refused so God "...drove out the man..." Sin will always bring more disobedience.
  • V jen
    I think every time you read or hear this scripture read the blame always fall on Eve, I don't believe that the serpent could have gotten close to her if Adam was around more and I think that the serpent came around daily charming her til she fell for what he was saying yes I agree she was wrong. The same way the serpent charm Eve she did it to Adam and I don't believe it was done in one day
  • Mary christy
    Thats the reason...why we live with sin....

    All languages were created by God. There was a time when mankind spoke only one language. It wasn't until mankind became too curious about God and heaven. Mankind's decided to build a tower towards heaven. God saw what man was doing, God said mankind should not know everything. So God broke up the languages. Mankind separated to different parts of the world. Read- The Tower of Bibel
  • Dusty
    I. Who recorded these conversations?
    2. Did man talk or were they using sound gestures?.
    3. Did the serpent and man speak the same language.?
    4. Did the serpent leant to talk or did it have innate intelligence.
    5.second greatest story.too far fetched.

    Psalms 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Ecclesiastes 3:20 All go unto one place all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

    God did not create Animals from dirt

    We should learn how to obey God than our selfishdesire

    Notice in the 15 th vs the controversy, enmity, between seed of Eve and Satans. Seed is descendants of childern not yet born, controversy began.Rev. 12:4 Satan,dragon cast his seed to earth,tares in Matt. 13:36-44 wicked one sows the tares to earth the same as God sends His children to earth.John 8:44 Christ speaking to these tares are of 1st murderer Cain whos father was Satan, their father.
  • Irene123
    AMEN! Phebe; nail on the head!!
  • Norm
    Repent asking for forgiveness and ask Christ into your heart. But do pray for others according to the Word. Be blessed in Christ Jesus. Amen. Acts 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. 1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 1 John 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
  • Word
    Lenetra the only sins you need to ask God forgiveness for are your own each day. I myself ask God when realized. But someone who has sined aren't yours and God isn't going to Judge you for something your dad or mom or anything that happen to others in life. Day by day the book records in heaven of our good works and our bad and if you repent for yours that are bad are erased. In CHRIST Name always
  • Cathryn
    I personally like to read Psalm 51 and then I believe in my heart that I am forgiven, so I hope this helps.
  • Lenetra
    will someone here please tell me how to pray to be forgiven of the sins of adam and eve i wanna be closer to the father
  • Judith Douglas
    God will always honor his word he means what he says and there is always a consequence for disobedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Someone asked "what happened to THE tree of life." it still exists in God's paradise. Amen
    Revelations 2:7, 22:14, 22:1-3
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Benny, where does it say "there is no angel as beautiful as Lucifer" as you claim." thanks.
  • Isaac
    Cause in genesis chap 1:1-2the bible says God created heaven and earth. The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep. And God started to create things on earth for Heaven was perfect and well done the Angels were been created that is why God did not touch the Heavens but the earth. satan were been created by God before God created things on earth. Thanks
  • Benny
    well it say it in Isiah 14 verse15 he wanted to be like the father. There was no other angel as beautiful as Lucifer it was his pride that took him down.
