The woman said to the serpent, “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 certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:2-5(NIV)
Eve stated that God told her that if she touched the fruit she would die. He never stated that. Do we add onto what God tells us to either manipulate others or confuse ourselves?
I was talking with a neighbor the other day about if it is OK to buy stuff or not. My son came by and said to the both of us: “You can justify anything you want but all you need to do is read the Bible and understand God’s character.” Wow! Are you reading the Bible? Are you getting to know God and His character?Do You Believe? Questions, Share, Email, Facebook
