The Tree Of Knowledge.

And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
Genesis 2:9


Most of the concepts of the words in this verse are simple everyday terms. There are four main areas of this verse that sets the message focus of this verse. These are:
1. out of the ground
2. pleasant to the sight and good for food
3. tree of life
4. tree of the knowledge of good and evil

For those who are rule based and like to exclusively focus on rules and technicalities they might want to also focus on the phrase ‘in the midst’ even as this no more significant than the phrase ‘made every tree grow’. But then hairsplitters will be hares-splitters.

This is not a difficult verse to understand but unfortunately like many simple, clear and straightforward verses, passages and messages of the Holy Christian Scripture, most of professed “Christianity” just doesn't seem to understand it. And the reason they don't (i.e. those who don't understand), is because they just don't and won't believe GOD, they just plainly refused to believe anything that GOD had recorded, anything that GOD said even as they proclaimed and asserted that they “oh so absolutely believe in God andor Jesus Christ” of the Christian Holy Scriptures. Everything that GOD had recorded that HE said and communicated, they must twist it and add spins to it so that it could be made to mean something else that agrees with whatever they wanted to believe and wants you to believe, even if this means twisting them to some totally ridiculous things such as “Sex is the Original Sin”. One can't help wondering about their so called faith which they claimed gave them access to grace, when very obviously they don't even have the simple faith to believe a very plain and simple record of the Holy Christian Scriptures.

That should be amazingly incredulous, but no one seems to be surprised much less confounded why it should be that the plain and simple records of the Holy Christian Scriptures be so totally and deliberately misunderstood so that it can be perversely and ridiculously twisted to say something that is implicitly so evil

By this I am referring to the prevailing doctrines of the Christmas religion that have for more than one thousand seven hundred years taught that the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was sex; that Adam having sex with his wife, Eve, committed a sin, the original sin; that all mankind since have been born into sin because their parents had sex in order that they be conceived; that sex in itself is a perverted filthy sin.

Today some of these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the Christmas religion may no longer openly and explicitly teach and advance that sex was the original sin, but they still hold to this concept of an original sin of the first family that had all the rest of mankind without committing the same, condemned by. This is not any less implicitly evil as that which purported that sex was the so called Original Sin.


For the all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the Christmas religion let us clarify how this perverted evil doctrine taught through their doublespeak has been blaspheming GOD even as they pretended to love GOD and pretended in deliberated stupid to glorify HIM preaching their message of HIS love being, purportedly, unconditional (which in itself is also another vile blasphemous lie – read the chapter ‘GOD IS’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’ for the discussion on this).

And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 1:27

The Holy Christian Scriptures clearly, plainly and explicitly recorded that GOD created man, male and female. Now anyone among you who are biology majors want to tell me what male and female means? SEX! What this means is that the Christian Holy Scriptures in no uncertain terms testified that GOD created sex in mankind. Not only that, for those of you who have really read the Christian Bible you would (or should anyway if you have not been deliberately pretending to be stupid) likewise know that GOD also commanded Adam and Eve to have sex. That was what Genesis chapter 1 verse 28 explicitly recorded. 

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Genesis 1:28

The same was recorded in Genesis chapter 2 verses 24 and 25Genesis chapter 2 verse 25 explicitly recorded that when Adam had sex with his wife Eve, neither of them felt any shame (Genesis 2:25) while performing the sex act of having sexual intercourse.

Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:24 – 25

So what does this mean according to the doctrine of the Christmas religionThat GOD created sex, GOD commanded Adam and his wife to have sex, after which GOD condemned them for having had sex and banished them from the Garden of Eden and also pronounced every human being that would later be born as sinners because they were conceived when their parents had sex.

Now I sure hope all of you reading this know how to ‘put two and two together’ because all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the Christmas religion obviously hadn't, didn't and still don't. So for their sake I will again explain what this evil doctrine of theirs has been implicitly advancing.

Aside from it obvious total ridiculousness, their perverted evil doctrines also implicitly advanced that GOD is a total contradiction and far from being righteous, just and good, HE is actually inconsistent, fickle, unstable and self glorifying, condemning HIS servants who obeyed HIM for obeying HIM. That is just one example of how evil and perverted all the doctrines of the Christmas religion have been. And this one is just the very tip of the ‘huge giant iceberg’ of evil lies of the Christmas religion to blaspheme (mock, insult, ridicule, malign and slander), to the extreme maximum, the GOD of the Christian faith and worship. But of course the Christmas religion is not the only one, all of the so called Abrahamic religions (except for the one and only true Christian faith and worship in the one and only true Church of GOD whose journey through the centuries from the Apostolic times to today was chronicled in the Christian Holy Scriptures in the book of Revelation chapters 2 and 3) exist mainly and primarily as the tool of Satan the Devil to get mankind to blaspheme the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The Trees In The Garden Of Eden. [trees]

Genesis 2 verse 9 recorded that the Garden of Eden which GOD planted was full of trees that were both appealing and nutritious. And among all these trees were just two specially named (i.e. identified) trees. One was called, named or defined as the Tree of Life while the other was named and defined as the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. All the trees except for one were given as food to Adam. But of the tree named, identified and defined as Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, GOD warned Adam (Eve wasn't created yet) commanding him not to eat of anything from that tree.


Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Genesis 2:15 – 17


Firstly all the trees in the Garden of Eden were appealing and pleasant to look at. Only two among these many trees were specifically named and defined and mentioned in Genesis 2 verse 9. Adam was placed in the garden both to tend and take care of the garden (tend and keep) as well as to enjoy its abundance (you may freely eat).

Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. 
Genesis 2:19 – 20

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
Genesis 2:21 – 22

After that GOD gave Adam the power authority to name all the animals (Genesis 2:19 – 20). At this point Eve was still not in the picture as she had not been created yet (Genesis 2:20). So all this took place on the sixth day of Genesis chapter 1 before Eve was created on the same sixth day in the Garden of Eden at a later time.


The Significance Of The Garden Of Eden. [goe]

One of the areas in which you will find scant Christian teachings or doctrines, whether that by true Christianity (in the one true Church of GOD or among the Elect who are no longer in GOD's one and only Church but are all scattered in your own preferred churches of gods because they lusted to worship the men who have set up this churches) or fraudulent identity thieving murderous so called Christianity, is that concerning the significance of the Garden of Eden. Yet the Garden of Eden is an essential part of the Christian Gospel message that teaches us about GOD's plan and purpose for man on the planet earth and the process through which GOD will rid evil from HIS creation forever.

What was the significance of GOD planting a garden in Eden? Why would GOD need to plant a garden for the first family of man? Isn't the earth created by GOD and restored to its original state after the destruction by rebellious Angelic personages a conducive place to start off the first family of man made in the image of GOD? A good question to ask would be, ‘Why would GOD create the earth as a mankind unfriendly place, a harsh and often times dangerous place and then placed mankind made in HIS image and likeness into it? Couldn't GOD made the whole earth a perfect paradise garden, and if HE could why didn't HE?’ Well, because GOD being truly all knowing already knew (even before time began, before the physical universe was created) full well that Adam and Eve would disobey to take and eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge and Evil, contrary to the evil lies of all the evil so called Abrahamic religions claiming to be of GOD and also all ego lust driven men (includes women) lifting themselves up as these supremely supreme proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD. This one single truth alone would already have totally exposed all the evil lies of all so called Abrahamic religions that they are not and were never of GOD but are of Satan the Devil and his cohorts, the demons, all of them going all out to malign and slander (i.e. blaspheme) GOD and to get mankind to lust obsessively.

There will be many of these so called Abrahamic religions especially those who are the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of these evil religions who would ask, ‘How would GOD being all knowing exposed us, revealed us to be agents and servants of Satan the Devil and his demonic cohorts?’

Anyone who knows how to ‘put two and two together’ would (or should anyway) see and understand this plain simple truth. But all those who don't understand and want to understand, you can check out the discussion on this in the blog, ‘The Holy  Bible Expounded’, in the multiple installments (i.e. parts) discussion on ‘Why Create Life Through The Process Of Evolution’ under the installment ‘The So Called Abrahamic Religion – Know the Basics’ where the discussions is on the plain and simple truths which expose the so called Abrahamic religions as being of and from Satan the Devil and the demons in cohort with him. That is the reason their doctrines while pretending to glorify GOD are all explicitly engineered to mplicitly blaspheme GOD to the maximum. This (delay in disclosure) is to allow ego mega supergorgers room to indulge and get their full fix of lust that their condemnation may be fulfilled (i.e. filled to the fullest). All the rest who do not understand this, do not feel discourage, because gaining understanding is a process that takes time, perseverance and a true (as opposed to a false or fake) sincere effort looking to and seeking GOD who gives understanding to the meek and the contritely ignorant. All of us are ignorant to some degree and to some extend on somethings and most things. But all the brazenly arrogant in their ego supergorging lust will refuse to understand.

Now if you have thoroughly read through and have sincerely studied seeking to learn the truth about the whole Gospel message translated into Christian Bible and really understood it, you would (or should anyway) have appreciated the fact that the planet earth in its present existing state (Romans 8:20 – 22) has not exactly been a paradise made for mankind. That was why GOD planted a garden for Adam and Eve to live in safe and conducive environment while being shielded, protected, provided for and blessed by GOD (Job 1:10). That was also the same reason GOD evicted them when they broke faith with HIM in direct disobedience to rob (Malachi 3:8) HIM, choosing to trust and to believe a strange snake which talked rather than to believe and trust the GOD WHO had created them and provided for all their needs and legitimate wants.


For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 
Romans 8:20 – 21

After Adam and Eve had disobeyed GODs specific direct instruction and command not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, GOD told Adam they were to be driven from the Garden of Eden for robbing GOD (Malachi 3:8), taking what was expressly forbidden:


Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”
Genesis 3:17 – 19

Also towards the end of that age (i.e. the Antediluvian Age) just before GOD drown that generation because of their wickedness, it was confirmed that life on earth for that generation was no paradise garden (Genesis 5:29).

And he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD has cursed.”
Genesis 5:29

From that time forth, mankind basically was thrust into a harsh dangerous world which would bring them much suffering, sorrow, decay, corruption (i.e. degeneration) and death (Genesis 3:19), placed under the power authority of Satan the Devil as the ruling Angelic authority assigned over the earth (Luke 4:5  –  6; Matthew 4:8  –  9; Job 1:12). That was the full consequence of their act of disobedience, distrust and ill will (or bad faith), they will no longer be directly protected, shielded and provided for by GOD whom they have rejected in distrust to act with ill intent and bad faith. The commandment forbidding Adam and Eve from eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was a simple and straightforward as also were the full consequences and the punitive penalty declared by GOD for disobeying.

but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
Genesis 2:17

The New Living Translation translated this verse:
except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

A better translation would be ‘you are bound to die’ from the more literal ‘you surely will in dying die’, conceptually meaning you ‘will go through dying or death which will bring your life to an end’ or ‘your life will end eventually in death.’


When Adam and Eve rejected GOD by choosing not to obey HIM (through choosing to believe and obey the snake) they were basically rejecting GOD's rule over you, rejecting HIM as their GOD, RULER and KING and choosing the snake as the symbolic representation of the Evil One (Luke 11:4; Matthew 6:13, 5:37; John 17:15) who had used the snake to communicate with them, as their God, the one whom they really and actually obeyed and served.


Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
Romans 6:16


You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
John 8:4


The above two verses from the New Testament Scriptures plainly, clearly and explicitly testified that if we obey Satan the Devil (as the source, instigator and propagator of sin and evil in GOD’s creation) then we are his servants and slaves, his disciples, his followers; then we really and actually are the servants and disciples of Satan the Devil (John 8:44). Likewise to when we believe in to obey men who have made themselves out to the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of whatever they present and proclaim themselves to be the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of, then they are our real and actual gods, the gods who believe and subscribe to. This is the specific reason near all the Elect of GOD today, all those inside the one true Church of GOD as well as those outside in their own Churches of Gods. they are all worshiping idols, things (i.e. a man, a group of men andor a concept of religion and God) other than the true GOD and true religion (i.e. faith and worship), as their gods (Ezekiel 8:11 – 18). Anyone who requires andor commands you to obey them and to believe in them instead of andor in place of GOD (i.e. instead of what the Scripture of Truth taught and commanded) are actually making themselves into Gods who can both overrule and nullify (through their proclamations, decrees and doctrines) the ONE true GOD.


What should be understood from the significance of the Garden of Eden is that when mankind rejected GOD as their GOD and RULER in choosing to disobey  (i.e. acted in treachery and rebellion against) HIM, they had technically and effectively rejected HIS Government and Kingdom (i.e. authority and rule), rejecting HIS authority and sovereignty over them. Thus they had thrust themselves (through their own treachery and rebellion) out into a world fraught with all kinds of danger and threats to their safety and well being: from drought and famine, disease and pestilence to calamities and disasters not to mention from their own acts of wickedness and violence upon one another. This can be compared today (as a Type or in similitude) to a person renouncing his citizenship of the country of his birth and natural citizenry and choosing to take up that of another country.


This concept is further reinforced when GOD delivered and freed the ancient Israelite from slavery to make a covenant with them by which they were to be HIS nation inheriting the Promise Land, a land flowing with abundance and plenty. Even as the covenant came with GOD’s promises to shield, protect, provide for and bless them abundantly as members of HIS Kingdom, there was a corresponding requirement for them to be faithful subjects to HIM as both their GOD and KING. Unfortunately the ancient Israelite were hardly ever true to this covenant which according to the terms saw their afflictions and finally of them being cast off for their persistent failure to keep and honor their covenant with GOD.




GOD indeed would be very foolish if HE were to shield, bless and protect a world full of men and women, bent on rebellion against HIS benevolent rule to pursue the evil and wicked imaginations of their corrupted Spirit-minds, from the consequences of their acts and deeds. The whole purpose of GOD creating personages with free will and the corresponding freedom to choose to do good or do evil has been that these personages should understand through the course of all the evil and suffering they have wrought, that total freedom comes with consequences of the choices that are made from exercising freedom without responsibility and commitment seeded from sincere love for one another. It is the lesson of all ages that total selfish self expediencies in the pursuit of one's life will only wreck havoc and destruction to everyone and the environment (habitat and habitation) they have their existence in. Until the day each and every individual personage fully and willingly learnt this lesson to then turn and humble themselves before the all benevolent and wise CREATOR to order their lives according to HIS commandments of love, evil will continue to rampage through this world of self expediently wicked men and women.

In evicting Adam from the Garden of Eden, GOD was just conceptually saying‘Since you have rejected MY rule over you (Genesis 3:17) I will no longer directly provide for,shield, protect and bless you and your family, you will have to fend for yourselves on this harsh and dangerous earth (Genesis 3:17 – 19) until you returned to dust from which you were made (i.e. die the cessation of your life). From then, Adam and all that descended from him were to irk out their livelihood on a planet teeming with natural self reproducing life that was design to react and adapt to the changing habitat, a planet that will sustain him and his family but at the same fraught with hardship and danger (from predation, diseases and the natural forces of nature) inherent from the physical elements of this life sustaining planet. If we can (or if we would choose to, rather then deliberately pretend to be stupid so that we don't) understand this then we would (or should anyway) understand there is no such thing as Original Sin whether sex or whatever, that had all mankind who born thereafter to be sinners, except that all are under sin because all through their own acts sinned when knowing good they chose to do evil in the process of their lives from attaining mind maturity.

While to Eve, the gist of what GOD said was that henceforth the fruit of her womb (i.e. what she would conceived — ‘your conception’) will only bring her pain and sorrow (Genesis 3:16; 4:9). All these statements are prophetic (Genesis 3:14 – 19) including the judgment on the power behind the talking serpent (Genesis 3:15).

And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” 
Genesis 3:15


The Tree Of Life [tol]


One of the biggest, most universal lie of false religions whether monotheistic, polytheistic or animistic is that of the immortality of the human soul. This has been the central dogma of nearly all religious beliefs until maybe the last couple of hundred years or so ago. From the perspective of the true Christian teachings this lie originated at the Garden of Eden when the mysterious talking serpent told Eve that she will never die. This was recorded in Genesis 3 verse 4. But again this verse was inaccurately translated by nearly all the English Bible translation rendering that verse as either you will surely not die’ or ‘you will certainly not dieto make out (i.e. to portray or paint) GOD as a liar.

The more literal translation from Young Literal Translation is the closest but is not clear as an English sentence.

And the serpent saith unto the woman, `Dying, ye do not die,
Genesis 3:4


But none the less the translation (by the YLT) directly supports that of Genesis 2 verse 9.

and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it -- dying thou dost die.'
Genesis 2:17


Here we have GOD saying in dying you will die’ and Satan the Devil saying (in proxy) ‘in dying you won’t diedirectly contradicting what GOD said. What is implicit in both these statements? The statement by GOD confirmed that Adam (includes Eve) do not have immortality because they could die whereas that of Satan the Devil claimed they already have immortality, their souls are immortal.

If you do a check on what the various religions of the world believed some hundred or more years back, you would find that most held to the doctrine of souls of those who died going somewhere or going through some sort of transition. These religions include the mainstream “Christians” sects. This should be shocking since no where does the Christian Bible teach such a doctrine of the dead not really dying but their soul continuing on living either in heaven, hell or some other place. Today (from 2009 C.E.), quite a few the leading experts, defining authorities and godly masters of these religions have started to spin a new twist to explain this belief.


The fact that there was a Tree of Life which was not (initially) denied (i.e. forbidden) to Adam and Eve should be clear to all who read the Christian Bible that unending life (of a supposedly immortal soul) was not something that Adam and Eve already possessed. This is further supported by the record of Genesis 3 verse 22 to 24 which clearly state that the reason they were evicted from the Garden of Eden was to prevent them eating from the Tree of Life and thus live forever (receiving immortality).


Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
Genesis 3:22 – 24


Intelligence And Knowledge

Intelligence and knowledge, two very simple concepts of reality, but do all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and enlightenment of whatever school of thoughts, beliefs, knowledge and technological disciplines even remotely understand anything true about these two basic concepts of reality? Anyone who is even remotely intelligent (as a member of mankind) and still sane enough (from not lusting uncontrollably) would (or should anyway) find this to be an incredulously unbelievable thing how it could be that in this ultra mega supremely enlightenment and knowledge empower age, all of the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and so called enlightenment of the social order of mankind (without exception) would not understand, would all without exception deliberately pretend stupidity so as not to understand, the two most important concepts of reality that would very clearly, simply and explicitly spell out (i.e. define, reveal and expose) exactly what evil (as discussed in the Christian Holy Scripture) is.



{ – This is a newly (as of December 2015) added section to this discussion to bring it inline with the new scope of this work which started out as a foundation discussion of the true Christian faith and worship but has since been expanded to include testifying against all the evils committed by all the evil doers and especially the Elect of the GOD of the Scripture of Truth who have lusted after lies and chose to worship men instead of the ALMIGHTY GOD.  This may take quite some time to be complete due to this author being totally swamp by the scale of this work.

The Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil. [tok]


When it comes to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil there are as numerous assertions, proclamations, postulation and hypothesis as to what it is, as there are self proclaimed authorities and proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives on the subject. Of these the most infamous and most ridiculous is of course that of the Christmas religion mentioned at the beginning of this post. However the Christmas religion is not the only one whose doctrine of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil has been in ridiculous and evil lie, nearly all those of the major religions that laid claims to be of the ONE true CREATOR GOD, hold to some similar ridiculous doctrines even as their doctrines may not be as implicitly and deviously evil as that of the Christmas religion. I won't list any of these ridiculous doctrines here as you can easily read them through a Google search.

The reason all these so called religious experts and authorities are totally clueless and had gone into ridiculous errors is that none of them really believe the Holy Christian Scriptures. The only one slight complication about this tree is that it is firstly symbolic. But then the Christian Bible uses symbolic language and allegories quite extensively, but that of course does not make the entire records of the Holy Christian Scriptures into one big allegory as many also have advocated. You can learn the truth about how to read and understand the Christian Holy Scriptures from The Holy Bible Expounded blog of this author.


The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is firstly a literal tree and secondly a supernatural tree. But it is also symbolic, just as the Tree of Life was symbolic; just as the Ark of the Covenant that the ancient Israelite carried with them in the wilderness was symbolic as well as literal; just as baptism has been both symbolically and literally to be performed by a person as a symbolic sign to their expressed true literal real repentance towards GOD; just as the New Covenant commemoration was a symbolic but also a literal commemoration; just as JESUS as the LAMB of GOD was and still is symbolic but HIS dying bleeding to death was also literal. And like nearly all the symbolism of the Bible it also carries a literal aspect of what it represent. The Ark of the Covenant in which was kept the two tablets of stone on which GOD wrote the Ten Commandments was symbolic of the Covenant the ancient Israelite made with GOD and was carried as the literal representation of that covenant which was the Ten Commandments. In breaking or failing to keep or abide by the Ten Commandments, the ancient Israelite were literally (and legally from the context of criminality) breaking their covenant with GOD made in Horeb. In the same way, the failure to commemorate the New Covenant Passover instituted and commanded by JESUS exactly as ordained, constitutes breaking that Final and Everlasting Covenant.
Please read The Keys To Unlocking The Mystery Part IV of The Holy Bible Expounded for the meaning of the main symbols used in the Holy Scriptures.


What did the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil represent? Was it literally sex as the doctrine of the Christmas religion has been advocating for centuries? Or was it some intangible abstract conceptual idea of good and evil, or was it literally about deciding for ourselves what we want, or was it conceptually about the two covenants? Or was it the hundreds of ridiculous notions taught today by all of the the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the thousands to ten of thousands of different school of thoughts, both religious and philosophical, whether of professed Christianity or of every other system of beliefs that had apportioned this symbolism to advance themselves and their beliefs as superior and supreme?


Now if you think that you can believe the Holy Christian Scriptures (and corresponding to believe this author) you would know exactly what this tree represented symbolically and what it was literally as a creation of GOD.

Satan certainly knew what that tree represented, and was. But however nearly all of professed Christianity as well as all the others who spoke on this tree whether those of other religions or just about anyone who wanted to show off how great and brilliant they are, speaking as if they are the leading experts and masterful authorities when they were totally clueless, had focused on the first part of this statement spoken through the snake. They were all fixated on what the serpent claimed was GOD's duplicity because they basically believed this claim of the serpent even as they in their own self deception might explicitly deny it. 

For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 
Genesis 3:5

GOD too spelled it out clearly several times. But hardly anyone in the world who reads it or studies it believe what GOD said it was.

And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
Genesis 2:9

but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Genesis 2:17


GOD even reconfirmed it, what it was, and that it conferred the ability (or intelligent cognizant) of knowing good and evil,’ or knowing (having the knowledge of) what is good from what is evil, yet until today none would believe it, amazing! I certainly hope those reading this here or have read it in the other works of this author will finally believe GOD by believing HIS Words recorded in the Holy Christian Scriptures.


Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”
Genesis 2:22


So basically the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was literally that — a literal as well as supernatural tree which impart the ability to know (i.e. to understand the difference between) good from evil, knowing what is good and knowing what is evil, to be able to tell the difference between the two. A tree whose fruits which once eaten would impart the intelligence or ‘common sense’ to know the difference between good and evil. Once after eating, immediately Adam and Eve knew the difference of what was good and what was evil so they became afraid. No! Not afraid because they knew the difference between good and evil but because they knew, they realized that they had done evil in disobeying GOD and dared not faced HIM. That was why they hid from GOD, sure they were also suddenly ashamed of their nakedness but hadn't they already covered themselves. And wasn't it funny that if the shame of nakedness was what made them hid from GOD, then why didn't they hide from one another but only from GOD. That was also why they were immediately defensive putting the blame of what they had done onto others when they were questioned. Adam the guiltier pair was even resentful of GOD and included GOD in his blame game. Here was when acrimonious attitudes began to take root in the social order of mankind. Personages harboring ill intentions and bad faith are automatically acrimonious, it is a definitive trait of such personages. Here was when trust and faith turned into deceit, bad faith and ill will. Yes, here was the seed that was the beginning of all the evil that Adam and Eve would see in their world, a world order they out of pure lust had explicitly chosen having rejected that which was of GOD.

A natural question which I am sure had been asked countless times is why would knowing good and evil be such a bad thing, as to incur a death sentence for all of mankind? Why would GOD want to deny Adam and Eve the intelligence to know the difference between good and evil? Why would knowing good and evil elicit such a harsh response from GOD?

The answer is of course very obvious and the only reason it was (probably) never answered until you have read it here was because of bad faith, bad faith towards GOD, born of the same distrust against GOD that got Eve sold to the lie by the serpent. And possibly also because of what I called a “hare-splitter mindset” that is completely focused on rules and technicality so totally as to be unable to see the whole big picture, unable to understand what everything added up to.

Let us consider the situation in the Garden of Eden just before Eve decided that distrusting and disobeying their GOD, MAKER and BENEFACTOR was a good thing, a desirable thing, a wise and expedient thing to do.

But before we do that we need to understand that the recorded account of all that transpired in Genesis was just the skimpiest of summaries as I also wrote in my discussion on the Genesis chapters. The Genesis account was probably given to Moses in a summary of the event highlights, with just the briefest of details to teach the Children of Israel both their genealogy and how this world of theirs got to the condition it was in when they entered into the Ten Commandments Covenant with GOD. The account was probably given to Moses while he was forty days and forty nights up on Mount Sinai to receive the two tablets of stone written with the Ten Commandments by GOD for a reminding sign of HIS Covenant with them. I certainly hope that none of you reading this had thought that it would take GOD forty days and nights just to write the Ten Commandments on the two stone tablets.


Earlier we discussed why GOD needed to plant a garden for HIS first human family to live in. The Garden of Eden was indeed a paradise garden especially when contrasted against the rest of the planet earth, a mostly harsh and dangerous place for severely limited man. Some may asked why cant GOD had made the whole earth a safe garden paradise for mankind just as the Garden of Eden was or for that matter why cant GOD just stop the rebellion in the first place. And indeed GOD could have but HE didn't for the same reason that there was a Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden. For the discussion on why GOD allowed evil and rebellion in HIS creation, read the four installment of the article beginning with the post ‘Why Did GOD Create Satan Part II?’, even as you would have the answer to it just by reading through to really thoroughly understand all the discussions of this author.


After putting Adam in the garden that HE specially planted for the first human family, GOD instructed Adam on his responsibility and brief him on his limits, one very specific limit. He was not to eat of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil because it would lead to death. That was the one thing that was forbidden. There were possibly hundreds maybe even thousands of beautiful trees with pleasant, nourishing, healthy fruits all of which were available to Adam and his family except for just one. Adam didn't seem to have a problem that and if he did he certainly didn't protest.

Everyone who had ever spoke about this particular tree that was forbidden having appointed themselves as leading experts and masterful authorities had totally failed to mention this simple fact. They were all as fixated as Eve was after her encounter with the talking serpent on this particular forbidden tree. And because of this fixation they just couldn't get a perspective of what Adam and Eve had done, how deceitfully they had acted in taking the forbidden fruit. Nor did all these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives focused on how deceitful and acrimonious both Adam and Eve became after eating it. If they had they would have understood why eating of the fruit of this tree would cause Adam and Eve to be evicted from the Garden of Eden. Instead they according to the measure of their ego supergorging lust have been spinning all kinds of stories, fables, spins and twists to show off to everyone just how much of an expert and just how supremely masterful they are.


If both Eve and her husband Adam had acted in good faith towards their MAKER, PROVIDER, BENEFACTOR and GOD they would have double checked with HIM if they were unsure of any of HIS instructions and commandments. Eve could have said to herself, Let me first check with Adam if this claim by this strange serpent is really true, that GOD has lied to him about this tree. Likewise Adam could have told Eve, Who is this serpent, I am not sure we can believe him but in any case let us check with GOD.’ Wouldnt that be acceptable considerations and behavior that expressed some small measure of faith towards GOD?

Today all of mankind (every man, woman and child) have at sometime or other in their lives acted in this same manner of bad faith. This is the sin which condemns everyone as a sinner before GOD, not the sex that their parents had in the sanctity of the marriage covenant through which they were conceived and born. Throughout the years from the post Apostolic era until the last couple of hundred years nearly all who professed to be Christian believed this evil perverted lie of the Christmas religion that very clearly, explicitly and plainly maligned and slander GOD. That is just the half of it, what is even more amazing is that many who will read this here or in the other materials of this author will still continue to obey the commandments of this Great Harlot even to the extend of seeking to murder people such as this author who speaks the truth of GOD.

So symbolically then, the Tree of Knowledge of Good And Evil represented just one most basic of things. And that was faith and trust, who would we choose to believe and trust, would we believe and trust GOD or would we just only trust ourselves by giving into every lust that fills our imaginations. Because if you really understand why Eve chose to believe the serpent you would know that it is not because she really fully trusted the serpent. Likewise Adam. For the discussion on the real reason why Eve chose to believe the serpent please read in the book ‘Bible 101 - The Holy Bible Expounded’ by this author, the chapter, ‘Self Righteousness And The Righteousness of GOD’.


The Knowledge That Kills.


There they were the first family of mankind, made in the image and likeness of GOD, in a paradise garden specially planted by GOD for them. A paradise garden filled entirely with good things except for the one tree in the midst of hundreds of other trees. Adam and Eve were not in hunger or in thirst, in need or in want, in danger or in distress, in discomfort, pain or sickness. And they have each other — a husband and his wife on their blissful honeymoon life in a paradise garden. There was no threat to their lives or well being. There was no harsh climatic condition, life threatening calamities, ravaging diseases or ferocious wild beasts. They were not denied companionship or the pleasure of their bodies for one another contrary to the evil lies of the Christmas religion. Even immortality was not to be denied to them should they chose it, that was why the Tree of Life was there and the fruits of it not forbidden them. The one single limit placed on them on pains of death because they were not ready for it, they had to have. So they took that which GOD explicitly forbidden not hiding from them why it was forbidden. They chose to disbelieve GOD, they chose to disobey HIM and they chose to rob GOD. When you take something without permission that is stealing, when you take what is expressly forbidden it is robbery. Could any relationship continue in the face of such distrust, bad faith and deceitful dealings? Were they even remotely remorseful and sorry for their dastardly deed of ingratitude? Vile and evil criminals we have plenty in this world of ours, but the worst and most dastardly evil among these are those who prey and parasite on those who love and care them, nurturing them and work only good for them.

Take a look at our world today and understand why, why with our so called great enlightenment that began taking place many centuries ago resulting in our technologically advanced and knowledge based societies of today, the societies of man are still so regularly and pervasively punctuated with carnage and violence? Even aside from national and international conflict and wars, within the midst of peaceful nation states, violence continued its endemic rampages. Our enlightenment and knowledge had not made even a dent in the evil that proliferates and pollutes this world, much less of stopping it. As our population increase, as our social order advances in knowledge, evil had grown right along side it.

Are the brilliantly super mega intelligent shakers, shifters, movers and shapers of our supremely “enlightened” social order truly all that clueless why the knowledge of good and evil would bring the death penalty on mankind in the Garden of Eden?

One of the most basic attribute of freedom is the freedom of choice, the ability of the Spirit-mind of intelligent self aware knowledge empowered personage to freely decide and make choices. And one of the universal truths that such a personage needs to understand is that of cause and effect; that decision acted on and acted out whether in words or deeds carry consequences. Some consequences are immediate while others take time to become apparent, but the consequences are always there whether it is right away or days to centuries later. That is one lesson mankind until today has refused to learn. Every pain, sorrow and destruction that has ever been experienced started as an action or speech by an individual or a group of individuals at some point of time in the past. This is the very simple concept and context we need to understand and address in our actions and motivations before evil can be purged from the social order of mankind.

When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit what they took on was a knowledge that they had not been trained by GOD to handle, not yet. And the consequence is the world today, a world that refuses to handle the truth of responsibility and accountability, a world bent on deceit and any manner of evil to get what they want, what they allowed themselves to become fixated on, obsessed with or addicted to.

But ever since from the time Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden of Eden because they could no longer be trusted to only do what is good and right, GOD have continued to raise up small numbers of men and women throughout the centuries to learn and be equipped to appropriately handle the fruit from that Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. These men and women are HIS Elect, the sincerely faithful and obedient disciples of JESUS. Starting from righteous Abel, Enoch and Noah in the Antediluvian world, through Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, the Judges and Prophets, to the Apostles and members of the Church of GOD. These select few men and women through their lives calling by GOD are being trained and equipped with the critical attitudes and motivation to develop the sincere unfaltering faith in GOD and genuine sincere unreserved love for GOD and one another. For these, knowledge no longer kills but build them and prepare them to be ready and worthy to attain to the perfect Kingdom of Heaven in a new forever perfect creation of GOD where evil will no longer have any place. This is what the whole intent and purpose of GOD has been since the beginning. This is the clear simple message that is obvious to all who have read thoroughly read the Christian Bible and still know how to put two and two together to understand the full complete message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD.

Ultimately and fundamentally then, the Knowledge of Good And Evil is about culpability, culpability from the empowerment of knowledge. If all the proclaimed and acclaimed super mega supremely intelligent brilliant geniuses leading experts, defining masters and authorities of the human social order would not deliberately pretend to be stupid they would and should know that basically evil is about the abuse of power whether little or much. From the easiest for an individual to carry out in just one utterance, a spoken or communicated message, to malign and slander another, to the most brutal of violent mass murders and genocide, all evil doers do evil because they are able to do so with varying extent of impunity of being able to get away with it for a period of time no matter how short.

And all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of religion and history including every thoroughly diligent student of religion and history, if they have not been deliberately pretending to be stupid, would (or should anyway) know that the Great Harlot church of the Christmas religion for centuries until her power to do so were curtailed, had been persecuting, torturing and murdering all those who would not submit to her evil authority, targeting specifically those who would continue to honor and obey the command of LORD JESUS to be faithfully honoring, keeping and performing the commemoration of HIS death as the New Everlasting Covenant (1 Corinthians 11:24 – 26). And if you think you can believe the Christian Holy Scriptures you would (or should anyway) know that not too long from today (2011 C.E.), the Great Harlot church of the Christmas religions will again regain her power to continue her murderous rampages in her attempt to destroy the Church of GOD. This will be when the fourth Beast of Nebuchadnezzar's dream vision will again be revived in the seventh and eighth Beast prophesied in the book of Revelation.

Truly most of the concepts in Genesis 2 verse 9 are simple and straight forward such that there should not be any difficulty to understand them. Yet for centuries the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil has been preached until this very day to be all kinds of things except for what it really is. The doctrines of the Christmas religion that it was ‘sinful filthy sex’ of course ‘took the cake’ for utter ridiculousness, but that should not be any surprise to those who know the true nature and identity of the Christmas religion.

Now I am sure that on reading this here many of all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the Christmas religions especially from those of the daughter churches of the Great Harlot will be scrambling to alter or tone down their doctrines of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil being sex as the Original Sin, even as quite a few have already twisted that original doctrine of theirs into sometime less idiotic, starting from some more than sixty years ago. And for this reason let me warn all the wicked who read this that a ten multiple times punishment awaits all (Galatians 1:8; Revelation 22:18 – 19) on the Day of the Great Judgment of ALMIGHTY GOD (Revelation 20:11 – 15), who steal and rob from what is written here and in all the writings of this author, to use or twist them to advance themselves or to advance all kind of lies about these writings.
