Forbiden fruit

Post by Tobias_Marco » Mon Sep 02, 2013 2:43 pm

MM4 pg 9:
We were five kids taking a shortcut home from the mall at night. There was a ship. There was an alien. There was the destructive worm of knowledge: You are not alone. You are not safe. Nothing is what it seems. No one is who they seem to be.
The knowledge of betrayal and terror. The awareness of evil.
And then the power.
The power made us responsible, see. Without the power the knowledge would have just been a worm of fear eating up our insides.
Genesis chapter 3:
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”
12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”
13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
16 To the woman he said,
“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”
17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”
20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.
21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 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.” 23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.


<First let me say that nowhere does it ever say that the fruit was an apple; it was the fruit of knowledge. Secondly, I have no idea what it would have looked like.>
<What are your thoughts on this forbidden fruit?>

<It was a small, blue fruit with a soft fleshy skin with greenish specks on it.>

Might explain why there are so many varieties of apple all around the world. LOL.

One the other hand, the fruit could have been anything. Probably something we've never seen on earth because logically it should be one of a kind given it's exalted status as fruit of knowledge.

<...not that we would even recognize it as such now.>
<It is also possible that if I ate some of the fruit it wouldn't do anything to me, as I already have the effects of it coded into my DNA or my soul or something along those lines.>

Possibly. I generally avoid topics such as these. Too much theory for a girl who enjoys facts. But it is actually fun trying to contemplate theology here. I get to expand my mind a bit.

<When did this forum become forbidden? It's been 8 years, and about 10 months since we talked about this. I have nieces and nephews younger than that, who can walk, and talk, sing and dance.>
