    Q. Who else in the Garden had the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

    Q. What was the penalty for eating the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?

      • Super answers Millie and I love how God’s response is fair and just, all the while helping Adam and Eve to find their way back to his friendship

          • Great answer Chelse. The angels did have this knowledge and they were not dying! which tells us something really special about immortality, is that God is going to fix our problem but will not take away our ability to discern between good and evil, and gives us a nature to fully pursue God’s ways, just like the Angels. Which is Awesome!

    • Q1. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life.

      Q2. Eve wanted to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil because the serpent tempted her to and said that if she ate the fruit, she would have the knowledge of right and wrong [like god and his angels]. Eve liked this thought and so she ate the fruit.

      Q3. The angels, god and the serpent.

      Q4. The penalty for eating from the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was to die. But not instantly. Adam and Eve would live for some time yet.

      Q5. They felt very awkward. They were naked. They were ashamed. So they hid from the Lord.

      Q6. Adam and Eve knew good from evil.

      See u tonight JFP!

      • Hey nice answers. Your absolutely right. Adam and Eve felt horribly distant from God as a result of their sin.

        How amazing will we feel when Jesus changes our nature at the kingdom. We will be totally at peace, and at one, kindred spirits with God and Jesus.
