Adam and Eve Series: Word Addition

Condensed from my Missions Course (2008).

How did Eve open herself to deception by the serpent?

In the first place, she wandered away from her husband. Had he been with her, he might have helped to draw her away from the tempter.

Eve was enchanted by a talking serpent and in the ensuing dialogue, she misquoted God’s instructions. The serpent craftily inquired if it was true they couldn’t eat of every tree of the garden. When Eve answered, she added to what God had told Adam. (These instructions were given Adam before Eve was created but as his wife, she was made aware of God’s instructions and commands.)

What God had said was that they could eat of every tree of the garden except of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day they ate of it, they would surely die. What Eve said was “God has said ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”

What Eve added was “nor shall you touch it.”

The serpent took advantage of this, assuring her “You will not surely die” and demonstrated by touching the fruit. Eve had unwittingly opened the door to deception and the serpent exploited it.

R.S.P.

A blessed week-end to all!

    base kuya pong! =)

    kuya pong, sabi nila parang nilimitahan daw sina Adam at Eve ng Diyos dahil merong”bawal” kainin sa hardin, pero ang totoo niyan, sabi ng Diyos, pwede nilang kainin lahat maliban sa isa..eh, isa lang naman yun, grabe na nga ang kalayaang binigay ng Diyos”sa atin eh. Ngayon, higit pa sa kalayaan binigay niya sa’tin, kapatawaran.

    kuya, may tanong lang ako.. dito sa post, parang si Eve talaga may kasalanan eh,pero ang kasalanan sa hardin, di’ba “The Fall of Adam” naman ang tawag? kasi si Adam namn talaga ang binilinan ng utos, at hindi si Eve, responsibilidad niyang turuan ang asawa niya.. lalaki talaga may kasalanan kuya(joke lang kuya. heheh. bias lang ako kasi babae ako. :))

    Gayunpaman, sinuman ang may kasalanan, ang importante ay alam nating “All have sinned(sobrang guilty ako dito), and fall short of the Glory of God”, at mas importanteng malaman natin na kaya Niya tayong patawarin. =)
    magandang araw saýo kuya Pong! =)

    P.S. kuya pong, andami kong natutunan dito. =)

    Thank you for sharing this post pong. Although Eve do the thing that God don’t want them to eat we will also give thank to them this is because without them we can’t be here.. This is just an example of being curious to a thing that we wanted to get or to achieve… So next time we will be careful enough..😀

    Haysss… parehas silang nagkulang. Si EVE nagpatukso at si ADAM kinagat naman ang fruit of LIFE. Past is past ika nga nila. Total napatawad na tayo at nalinis na iyon sa DUGO ni HESUS eh. Ang magagawa nalang natin sa ngayon is iapply ang salita ng DIYOS sa buhay natin at mabuhay ng naayon sa KANYA.

  15. @ Pong..!
    evil has his way…
    of taking advantage of us..!
    lalo na kung…
    merong isang bagay tayong…
    kinana curious-an..!
    or may isang bagay tayong…
    hindi lubos na nauunawaan..!😦

    • Pong says:

      and evil has no ways if we will not open any gates that he might enter.

      ingat po sir daniel inaabangan ko po ang mga other parts ng series mo God bless!

  16. J. Kulisap says:

    Sino po ang may lalang sa serpent?

    Kung matalino ang kaniyang likha, wala po ba dapat kapahamakan?

    • Pong says:

      mahabang paliwanagan kuya, but to answer your question si God. But to put God as the responsible being sa pagkalat ng evil is another story. minsan sa YM pag-usapan natin ha.

      Be blessed po kuya!
      Miss na kita!
