People are easier to control when they don't know anything. When you achieve knowledge you begin to question and therefore must be dealt with. My opinion of course.

maybe it's the opposite.
god tells his children what he doesn't want them to do, so that they will do it. just like children. maybe he was inticing us to eat the fruit because he really wanted us to have the truth.

 Quoting: KAKAKATZ 1393279


He was trying to keep them from ending up like Harold camping and other rapture tards of various sorts.

But since they ate it..the world has been plagued by a million religions ever since all hating eachother..setting doom dates all the time..and killing in Gods name.

God just wanted to avoid it all..but he still had to give them a choice or he would have been a dictator.

Sadly..they ate from the tree..and thousands of years later..we have RAPTURE TARDS..and MUSLIMS>.and..hate..and death..MOST of it in the name of RELIGION..which is..KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

Didn't want them to have knowledge of EVIL. Simple as that.
But then, if God knows all, he KNEW Eve would offer Adam the fruit so why did he place it there in the first place? Sort of seems like the human race was set up to fail.

No, the serpent(believed to be Satan) told the truth. God said if they ate the apple they would die. The serpent said they would gain knowledge of the truth and that is exactly what happened.

Besides it's all a metaphor for sex. The Bible is big on hating on sex and the metaphor is that Eve seduced Adam with her 'fruit' and thus corrupted him thus giving religion the excuse it needed to oppress women for thousands of years.

Re: WHY DID GOD FORBID ADAM AND EVE FROM EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE?
Remember this was after Satan's rebellion with his angels, so Yah made man and woman and the Earth but allows the devil to test them (and each of us). When the testing of everyone is done the whole joint is going to be thrown in the bin along with the people and angels that are rebellious, selfish haters. The Yah will make something significantly greater than this crap hole of a planet and live in peace with his people. True story hf

Re: WHY DID GOD FORBID ADAM AND EVE FROM EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE?
He let Satan rebel because he gave him like all of us, free will. And now he's letting us choose our side. Yah is also showing us what happens when people follow the law of Get - the take and not give, the 'I want it all' no matter the cost. How well is our world working under Satan's rules?? Some people have great wealth and power and others are brutalised, abused,starved and dying. There is an Indian billionaire building himself a 35 storey 'mansion'while many of his country men wash in the river they shit in.

Yah has let the Devils rebellion grow full blown, and it has produced many terrible evils for billions of lives. And I'm set against it.

Re: WHY DID GOD FORBID ADAM AND EVE FROM EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE?
I figure it's along the lines of knowing Good from Evil.

We kinda made that up. Nothing's Good or Evil, till we label it so.

Avoiding the Evil for the Good, sets us up for suffering. They come hand in hand. Different sides of the same coin, Life.

Living it ain't so easy though, in my experience!

 Quoting: KAKAKATZ 1393279




The story of Adam and Eve is actually a transformed(and mistranslated) Sumerian epic about a battle of perspectives.

Enki(represented by the serpent) wanted to give man the ability to procreate(The Apple represents knowledge.....sexual knowledge perhaps? Who knows....but its a metaphor that is not understood fully at this time).

Enlil(represented by "God" as he often is in any Abrahamic religion) wants this to be stopped, and for mankind to continue to live in a world solely controlled by "God" and his will.



Its a very fascinating story, and it is as old as the written word. But it doesn't come from the Bible exclusively, in fact it doesn't come from any of the Abrahamic religions at all.....it comes from the cradle. Eridu.

Re: WHY DID GOD FORBID ADAM AND EVE FROM EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE?
The tree of knowledge of good and evil was SATAN. the word eat should have been translated partake , Adam and Eve were to have no contact with Satan in the garden of Eden. The tree of life is Jesus in the garden of Eden. Adam and Eve not only spoke in the garden of Eden with Satan , they had sex with him resulting in Eve being pregnant with paternal twins , Cain and Abel. Cain was satan's child and Abel was Adam's child.

In genesis 3:13 when eve said she was "beguiled" by the serpent ( Satan) the word beguiled should have been translated wholly seduced. Then if you read genesis 3:15 it make total sense 3:15 " I will put enmity between thee(Satan) and the woman and between thy seed and the womans seed.

A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. †.
