Basically, how are we to make sense of human behaviour, specifically the dark side of human nature?
However, God also created a tree that would give the eater the knowledge of good and evil - commanding Adam not to eat its fruit. Why would God create something that was banned and, specifically, why would it be a tree whose fruit offered knowledge of good and evil?
Background Genesis 1 describes how God created the universe and life on earth. Genesis 2 provides the details of how human beings were created. Like most other creation accounts in the Bible, the one in Genesis 2 is brief. Here is what we know. God created Adam "from the dust of the ground" Genesis 2: Although God had created previous hominid species on earth, modern humans were the first to possess a spirit with which to communicate with and worship God.
The Bible makes it clear that Adam was created outside the garden of Eden and placed in it when everything was ready Genesis 2: God had created many different kinds of fruit trees for Adam to eat. Of all the trees, Adam was commanded not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, in the middle of the garden Genesis 2: Sometime after Adam was placed in the garden, Eve was created Genesis 2: Why set Adam and Eve up to fail?
Skeptics often complain that God set Adam and Eve up to fail. However, God had to give Adam and Eve a choice. Without free will to choose, Adam and Eve would have been mere puppets.
True love always requires choice. God wanted Adam and Eve to choose to love and trust Him. The only way to give this choice would have been to command something that was not allowed.
Since God had planted in the garden all the different trees from which we now get fruit, 1 the test was not too difficult. Adam and Eve had plenty to eat and a large variety of fruits from which to choose, and could have chosen to believe God.
They were only commanded not to eat from one tree out of the many.
Why did God choose the knowledge of good and evil? Since everything else God planted in the garden was good, the natural choice of something to choose from would be knowledge of evil.Martin Buber () wrote philosophical book that is part existential and part profoundly religious.
Buber's book GOOD AND EVIL is not be read quickly, but his insights help readers to appreciate a "deeper meaning" of the Bible especially the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament. Of course this album is good its KRAYZIE BONE for god sake, in my opinion the best hip-hop artist in existence.
But the problem is that I always have SUCH high expectations when he releases albums that I cant help but be a little dissapointed. Good and Evil as Flexible Most of us lie somewhere between the extremes of Gandhi and Hitler on the spectrum of human behavior.
Fans of the horror-comedy series had been eagerly awaiting an official announcement about Ash vs Evil Dead Season 4. Unfortunately, on Friday, April 20, Starz delivered the final answer to that. Martin Buber () wrote philosophical book that is part existential and part profoundly religious. Buber's book GOOD AND EVIL is not be read quickly, but his insights help readers to appreciate a "deeper meaning" of the Bible especially the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament. A stake has been driven into the heart of Ash vs Evil Dead, following news that US premium series STARZ will not renew the show for a fourth season.
In religion, ethics, philosophy, and psychology "good and evil" is a very common dichotomy. In cultures with Manichaean and Abrahamic religious influence, evil is usually perceived as the dualistic antagonistic opposite of good, in which good should prevail and evil should be defeated.
Nevertheless, contrary to the foregoing stated cultural rejection of epic stories, the best selling movies of the last 30 years have been grand tales of battles between good and evil: Star Wars, The Dark Knight, The Lord of the Rings, Spiderman, and even Harry Potter. Ash has spent the last thirty years avoiding responsibility, maturity, and the terrors of the Evil Dead until a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind's only hope.
