The story is legendary. The man and woman ate the forbidden fruit in Genesis 3. So, what happened?
God had told them that if they ate, they would die. But the serpent convinced them God was lying—that He was holding out on them. According to him, there was no mortal danger. In fact, just the opposite—the tree of the knowledge of good and evil held an unbelievable opportunity for them.
So, first question—who was right? Did they die, or did they become like God?
And, second question, what did that mean? Flesh out the results of their decision. What impactions does it have for you today?
We’ll explore this in detail in next week’s article.
