Dear God…

February 8th, 2008


I’m confused.

In Genesis 2:17 You tell Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit “of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”.

That’s grand.

Not to interpret that, but to take it literally, that means You didn’t want A & E to know the difference between good and evil.

Which means they didn’t already know the difference between good and evil.

Which means they didn’t know that disobeying You was evil. After all, You made them that na├»ve.

So if they didn’t know disobeying You was evil, why did You get so pissed off at them when they did eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?
