The Fall of Man feat. Michael

1Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said,
‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
2And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said,
‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”
4Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Genesis 3:1-7 NKJV

We didn't talk about the fact that the fruit is not and apple. That idea was popularized by Paradise Lost

Genesis 2:18 says it is not good that man be alone. This is the first time God says something is not good.

Little Light Studios is a ministry that breaks down subliminal (and not so subliminal) messages in modern TV shows. If nothing else, I recommend their video on the science of consuming media.

Ellen White, whom Michael references, is thought to be a prophet by some. I have never read her writings and therefore make no judgements about her.

When I said "that's a whole different topic" with respect to animals talking in the garden, I was thinking of a theory I've heard in which some people believe the serpent spoken of was not a literal serpent. I don't agree with this interpretation, but the reason I didn't bring it up was because I thought it would derailed the conversation.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
