Adam and Eve were created to spend their lives in the Garden of Eden and work the land. They didn’t need much. They were close to each other. Companions. Not ashamed of the fact they were uncovered and not surprised by the fact they were different from each other. In other words, they were happy. Or at least as happy as one can be living in total ignorance. Eden was a place of peace and balance. It was a place of wonder and everything that lived their lived in harmony. Until the serpent slided by and crawled into the Tree of Knowledge were it placed itself on a branch waiting for Eve to come by and convince her to take a bit from the forbidden fruit. Eve then convince Adam to do the same and that was the end of it. Their eyes opened and the veil of innocence was lifted. They became aware of each other and felt ashamed.
A wonderful story, really, but one must wonder, if everything was so nice and peaceful, where did that snake come from in the first place? And if God intended for Adam and Eve to continue living their life in innocence and quietness, what on Earth went through his mind when he planted that apple tree. No, we believe something else happened there and it has nothing to do with fruit. We believe Adam and Eve were not so much ashamed as they were curious about each other and Eve nibbled something very different than an apple. And we should all be happy and thankful for them, because all by themselves Adam and Eve discovered the pleasures of seduction and temptation. Isn’t that what makes life fun and daring? What would we be doing if we couldn’t take a small taste of the forbidden fruit every now and then. It was probably all part of the greater plan. God created that tree on purpose and for sure he is now sitting on his little cloud, looking down on us with a smile on his face. –BM-
