Theist. Would you give up your moral sense?
A moral sense is developed with the knowledge of good and evil.
Ask any man if he is a better man with a moral sense or not.
He will answer that it is better for man to have a moral sense.
In other words, if given that same commandment by God today, man would be all that he can be by NOT obeying a command that basically keeps man as bright as a cow without a moral sense. To not reach out for the knowledge of good and evil would be wrong and disastrous for man. Eve did the right thing.
The churches, religions and God work quite hard to help us all develop a higher moral sense and to say that for Adam and Eve to NOT reach out for this trait that makes man good is idiocy.
Eve, as the older Hebrew and Jewish traditions believed, did not cause our fall but caused our elevation to a higher state even acknowledged by God. Gen 3 22. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:
A & E were following good advise in eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil because without this knowledge, almost all issues remain outside the realm of discussions as most issues have aspects of good and evil.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
If you wish to follow this quotation and emulate God as you are supposed to, then you have to follow Eve and develop your moral sense.
It was not a fall. It was an elevation.
The Gnostics, Jews and Hebrew were right and Constantine?s Church was wrong.
Below are just some things for non theists to think about.
If you happen to be a literalist or fundamental and have your belief based on faith, fantasy and magic, you may not want to bother watching or reading the above as you may have lost the ability to use reason and logic and will not understand them. This happens quite often to those with faith not based on facts.
??Reason is the Devil?s greatest whore;? M L.
That is why Martin Luther hated logic and reason so much. He knew that they were the enemy of faith as they proved and showed faith without facts to be for fools.
Would you follow Eve or give up your moral sense?
