The Fall

God offers one command amidst the creation story. Do not eat from the Tree of Knowledge. However, the serpent being the crafty creature that he is provides adequate temptation for Adam and Eve to eat from the tree. While they do not die in the moment of eating, they do begin to see good and evil. Their insistent longing to learn – to know and to understand – all things begins. 

As we lean into this fallen world as fallen people, God’s love and our call to trust God ought to outweigh our need to understand.
