Original Sin

Why does mankind need a redeemer, anyway?

Have you ever heard someone talk about original sin? Many preachers and even poiticians talk about it these days. Original sin refers to the rebellious act committed by Adam and Eve wayback in the Garden of Eden.  Not sure there even was a Garden ofEden?  Not sure about the concept of Creation? You're not alone.  Take a look hereor here for a rundown on the scientific evidence.

And now back to Adam and Eve and that Garden.

Here's what the Bible has to say:  In Genesis2: 16-17 God puts a limitation on what Adam and Eve can consume.

And the LORD Godcommanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayestfreely eat:  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thoushalt surely die.

Yikes!  Heavy penalty!  At that time, neither Adam or Eveunderstood human death.  It might have been that animalsdied.  The Bible doesn't say.  But as the first humans, Adamand Eve couldn't have experienced funerals, cancer, accidents, or evenso-called natural death, so this concept was brand new.  Still,all they had to do was steer clear of the tree of knowledge of good andevil - that wasn't so bad.

Enter the Snake.


Now the serpent was moresubtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And hesaid untothe woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of thegarden?  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of thefruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which[is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neithershall ye touch it, lest ye die.  And the serpent said unto thewoman, Ye shall not surely die:  For God doth know that in the dayye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods,knowing good and evil.  And when the woman saw that the tree [was]good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to bedesired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat,and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.  And theeyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked;and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.  (NewKing James Version)

Okay, so Evefell for some snake's line.  Big deal.  I mean, really, thesnake just repeated what God had said.

Did the snake truly repeat what God said?  Read it again - theserpent says:

Yea, hath Godsaid, Ye shall not eat of every tree of thegarden?

In other words, he says - Come on, did Godreally say that?  That you can't eat from EVERY tree?  Youmean God is leaving something out?  Holding back?

Eve says - pay close attention now:

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of thegarden: But of the fruit of the tree which [is] inthe midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neithershall ye touch it, lest ye die.

WOW!  Even before she eats from the tree -she's LYING!  God never said "neither shall ye touch it"! That wily serpent has already made a sale!

From the very beginning, deception, not force, has been the Enemy's chief weapon.
