This morning’s ponderings.. well, a portion anyways..
In the Garden HE walked and talked with them. They had relationship with Him. They experienced Him. They always had before them the choice of eating from the Tree of Life, or the tree of the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil – He set before them Life and Death. They chose Knowledge over Experience… not understanding that experiences with Him brings knowledge and understanding of Him. [proven by the manner in which many of the Names of God came about] We were never intended to have (or eat of) the knowledge of evil, nor death.
“… God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” from 1 Tim 2:3,4 NLT
