THE EVIL OF SELF-WILL
God told Adam: from every
tree of the garden, you may eat; but from the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil, you must not eat. Adam could eat his fill of all the trees in the
garden, and, as long as he did not act against obedience, he did not sin.
A man eats of the tree
that brings knowledge of good when he claims that his good will comes from
himself alone and prides himself on the good that God says and does in him.
And so, at the devil's prompting and by transgressing God's command, the
fruit becomes for him the fruit that brings knowledge of evil and it is only
right that he should pay the penalty.
