The Horrible Topic

Yes, today we address that nasty, interfering topic of sin. Sin, the doing of wrong, the crimes, offenses, and acts of evil that fill the world and sometimes our very own lives. The world was barely created when Satan (How I hate adding capital to that name!) set sin afire into it.

The serpent was craftier than any of the animals. He said, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God said ‘You must not eat from the tree in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said, “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 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. (From Genesis 3:1-6)

Note that temptation generally comes in disguise, unexpectedly and from a subordinate; and because we think that God is holding out on us.

Have you been fooled just like Eve?
