Two Trees

And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

(Genesis 2:8-9) KJV

We have lots of questions and definitions today. I thought I’d share them.

  • Question:
    • IF God created a perfect world which got ruined by accident,
    • THEN why was the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • WHY did God put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden,
    • IF he knew that eating the fruit would ruin his creation?
  • Answer:
    • Eating the fruit didn’t ruin God’s creation.
  • Question:
    • IF God’s perfect world wasn’t supposed to fall into corruption, Plan A,
    • THEN was Christ’s death on the cross Plan B?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • IF our soul is eternal,
    • WHY would we need a tree of life?
  • Answer:
    • The tree of life is for healing the body, not the soul.

– Devolution, definition

Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the distribution of current biodiversity.
