I wonder if this also applied to (Eve’s
knowledge) of the Tree of Life (immortality)
3:4
“You will not surely die,” the serpent said..
(NIV)
 
     
There was mention of tree’s bearing fruit that
had “seed” unto itself so it could multiply.
Why would God put the Tree of Good and
Evil right in the middle of the garden where
his “children” would find it?
3:5
“For God knows that when you eat of it your
eyes will be opened, and you will be like
God, knowing good and evil.” (NIV)
“The focus of this story is the tree of
knowledge of good and evil. The phrase ‘to
know good and evil’ often meant sexual
maturity in Hebrew.” Reading the Old
Testament, By: Lawrence Boadt p.97
    So, Adam and Eve gained knowledge of the
difference between good and evil through
direct experience, instead of through
instruction by God…. So, the knowledge of
good and evil was not a good thing, since it
ruined their innocent relationship with God
and each other. http://www.godandscience.
org/apologetics/tree.html
God told Adam not to eat from the tree, and
as Adam was the “head” of the human family,
told Eve.
  The woman whom You gave to be with
me,
she gave me of the tree, and I ate:
Adam’
s attempt to blame Eve is completely
consistent with human nature. Few of us are
willing to simply say as David did, I have
sinned against the LORD (2 Samuel 12:13)

i. Significantly, if there is any blame, it is on
Adam, not Eve. Not only does Adam unjustly
accuse Eve, but also he refuses to accept
proper responsibility for his part in her sin.

ii. By saying “the woman whom You gave to
be with me,” Adam essentially blames God
for the sin saying, “You gave me the woman,
and she is the problem.” Adam wasn’t
content to blame Eve; he had to blame God
also. http://www.enduringword.com/

I wonder if this “serpent” took the form of a
human being BEFORE he was cursed by
God to crawl like a “serpent”/snake (always
shedding his skin)? It also reminds me of
Jesus’s 40 days in the dessert when he was
approached by Satan and “tempted”. Jesus
basically told him that he only worshiped his
Lord, his God and did not fall for Satan’s
temptations. (I believe that Jesus WAS God
in human form) and in a sense was
reiterating what God had said to him in Eden.
To
eat dust has the idea of total defeat.
3:14
“…you will crawl on your belly and you will
eat dust all the days of your life…” (NIV)
 
     
I have often believed that Eve was
impregnated by Satan in Eden, and after
banished, was also impregnated by Adam. It
has been medically proven that roughly 4%
of all twin births are from 2 different fathers.
The knowledge of good and evil after eating
“the apple” was in a sense, Eve eating SEED
BEARING fruit from that tree, and because of
this quote, I believe she “took” the seed of
Satan, and learned just what good and evil
was all about.
3:15
“…And I will put enmity between you and the
woman, and between your offspring and
hers;” (NIV)
He shall bruise your head, and you shall
bruise His heel
On the cross Satan bruised the heel of
Christ, causing His death. The seed of the
woman (Mary’s “seed” conception of Jesus)
will crush the serpent's head indicating
Satan's ultimate defeat.
Some feel seed of the serpent speaks of
unredeemed humanity beginning with Adam
and Eve's first son Cain and continuing on to
all those who oppose God. Jesus called the
religious leaders of his day the children of
the Devil (John 8:44).
     
I wonder if God ever told Adam and Eve also
to NOT eat from the Tree of Life?? Was it
ever implied that they would already live
forever and have immortality in the Garden
of Eden? I believe the word “us” as used
here implies the trinity (father/son/holy spirit),
and it was God who did not want “other gods”
(as humans did try to become and also
worshipped), and it was God “preventing”
these other “gods” from living forever.
3:22
“And the Lord God said, ‘The man has now
become like one of us, knowing good and
evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his
hand and take also from the tree of life and
eat, and live forever.’ ” (NIV)
Adam was cast out of the Garden of Eden.
No longer could he even contemplate eating
from the Tree of Life. It was beyond his
reach. Physical death now began to enter
the human race. Adam began to die! The
last Adam (Christ) later came to Earth to die
so that through faith in Jesus, we may now
inherit the eternal life Adam forfeited. Indeed,
Jesus says to those who persevere in faith,
‘To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of
the Tree of Life which is in the Paradise of
God.’ http://truth4believers.livejournal.

Covering ourselves with our good works is
like Adam and Eve trying to cover
themselves with fig leaves.
Adam and Eve were clothed in a garment
that was purchased with the life of another.
We are clothed with a garment of
righteousness that was purchased with
the life of another, Jesus Christ.
In order for Adam and Eve to be clothed, a
sacrifice had to be made. An animal had to
die. Without shedding of blood there is no
remission. (Hebrews 9:22)
God clothed them. This indicates that Adam
and Eve were saved. Adam had faith in God’
s promise of a Savior, and God provided a
covering for them through a sacrifice, which I
believe they taught to Cain and Abel.
   
     
“Cain sounds like the Hebrew for ‘brought
forth or acquired.’ “
Eve was also made from man (Adam) by the
help of the Lord.
Maybe Eve was also saying that because
God did not kill/eliminate both her and Adam,
but clothed them and made them now work,
she understands her evil deed (eating “the
apple”) of taking the seed bearing fruit from
the Tree of Good and Evil (intercourse with
Satan and getting his “seed”), she knew it to
be with the help of the Lord she became
pregnant. In a way, Eve was stating that she
did NOT become a God from taking the fruit,
but because she took the seed bearing fruit
and became pregnant, she obtained help
from the Lord in creating “man”.
4:1
“Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became
pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said,
‘With the help of the Lord I have brought
forth a man.” (NIV)
 
     
Again, the possible concept of getting
pregnant and having twins from 2 different
fathers.
4:2
“Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.”
(NIV)
 
     
     
     
     
     
“The goal of becoming God is the center of so many non-Christian religions, including
Mormonism. But in our desire to be gods, we become like Satan (who said, I will ascend into
heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God ... I will be like the Most High [Isaiah 14:
13-14]) instead of being like Jesus, who came as a servant” (Matthew 20:28). http://www.
