Mrs. Stringer recieves even more dough. Guess it will take awhile to go through all those awards dollars, but I can see other natives are becoming restless and a bit pissed over the disburstments being lop-sided. Funny how being a lawyer is the only ass dragging job in the world. The only job where dragging around and doing nothing pays big bucks.
In today’s scriptures boy’s and girl’s we look at how God tells Adam about the tree of knowledge of good and evil and how Adam relates the message to Eve.
The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
1Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3but 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.’”4 “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.” ___________________________________________________________
Adam was told if he ate from this one tree he would die. The process of age, death, sickness all began on that day. Adam was fully knowledgable that he was sinning against God. When asked by Satan if it was alright to eat of the tree of good and evil, Eve responds that not only should she not eat of it. She tells Satan she isn’t to even touch the tree. We know that wasn’t what was said to Adam yet he made it clear to Eve leave the tree alone. What happen next has changed the world. Satan tells a lie which begins all earthly evil. The Bible teaches that, God despises a liar.
