Tree in Eden

Hi Mr Smith, I have often thought that the way the world is now, is
> just how it is supposed to be.
> Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit and gained knowledge of good and
> evil, so they knew who the Devil was, where he came from since he is
> evil.
> They knew all about God and the Angels and Heaven and how long heaven
> has been in existence and where heaven is located etc etc since that is
> good.
> All because they ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good
> and evil.
> But when you check it out what did they know about it, "ohh look we
> are naked" and thats it " were naked" hardly knowledge of good and
> evil.
> Maybe it was really the tree of common sense and some one got it wrong.

> Jon


Dear Jon: I believe that Adam and Eve knew very little about the things you suggest.
On the other hand, there is a lot that you are missing in this very condensed version
of our first parent's introduction to God. The Bible is in some ways like the old Charlie Brown cartoons. There was an obviously, out front, very simply and silly story line for little children,
and then there was a secondary story hidden from the minds of children that only the adults
could pick up on, and that's what made them so good. You see the outward children's version
of Genesis, but you are totally missing the real story. Yes, Adam and Eve had no clothing,
but their problem was they they were "SPIRITUALLY NAKED" like the Christian Church is(See Rev. 3:17).  Sorry, don't have time to explain all these things in an email. Hope you understand.
There is much on this subject already written on our site.
God be with you,
Ray
