Adam & Eve
Logos Blog

Adam and Eve were living very happily in the Garden given to them by God.  They lived in perfect harmony with God, with each other and with the rest of all creation.

But God, wanting sons and daughters and not robots who would automatically obey without any personal involvement, had given Adam and Eve the very great gift of a free will.  God wished to know whether they would live their friendship with Him in a free submission to his authority, so He put them to the test.

God had told them that they could eat of all the trees in the garden, except of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
What did this test imply?  This test was meant to see whether Adam and Eve, being mere creatures, would respect the incredible limits between themselves and God, whether they would recognize themselves as creatures, totally dependent upon their Creator.  Would they trust Him, His words, His dealings with them, His ordinances and the laws that He had implanted in all of His creation?

God had warned them; to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil would bring them death.
Was everything that God had said, were his every words true?
