Eve’s perspective on her situation was much like today’s postmodern view:
The fruit was beautiful—“beautiful thoughts, words…” Anyone can claim anything is beautiful (e.g. abortion, perverted sex, euthanasia, false words about God).
Would make one wise—we get to be like God and decide what is right and true!
Tasted good—it’s fun—if it feels good, do it!
She ate the poison and disaster resulted. Meanwhile, Satan laughed up his sleeve and thus commenced the battle for the human heart down through the ages. Have we learned? Have we forgotten the lessons of the ancient past? Do we even believe that this happened?
From the Facebook post of a friend:
The darkness says, “What is truth? Just do what I say. You’ll never really know what is true. And why should it matter, as long as you’re pleasing yourself?”
The Holy One says, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32)
