Deep Question #1

Why did God tell Adam to not eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?
(Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-3)

Part of my "challenge" this week to serve Christ wholeheartedly is a self-inquisition to find out what I'm living, what I'm thinking, what I'm learning as I grow in Christ. I've posted before on previous blogs about "my stand" on sin and salvation, but I wanted to revisit. I think it's beneficial to step back and find out why I believe what I believe, why I think the way I think. And since I've come to find that it's in community that we discover what God's saying to us - checking each other, ministering together, asking questions - I'm going to ask a "deep question" in the morning and come back in the evening after work to field the responses and questions, see what others are saying together.

[If you've heard my "answer" on this question, hold off 'til later and let others jump in first. If you don't remember my former answers, I need to be a better writer!]

I give you props bro. An actual pertinent question. Sorry for the sarcasm, but you know how rare it is for a lot of these sights to actually talk about something that matters. We can talk about post modernism, the pertinance of certain doctrines, and politics all we want. ultimately it comes down to our faith in Christ. I'll have to think about this one.

Good call.

Too many people are afraid to ask questions. We can not have such fear.
