Adam and Eve broke the one single command God gave them, and calamity came upon them and the whole world. However, the question we need to ask is … why did God not want man to have this knowledge? The author suggests that God did want man to have this knowledge and so much more! However it had to be in God’s good time.
Any of us who have children know that wisdom and knowledge take time to teach. They also require time to grow and gain experience in order to grasp what is being taught. There can be no short cut. Adam was a blank slate knowing only the goodness and blessings of God. He had to develop and grow under the hand of God to be able to discern good from evil, right from wrong, blessing from calamity.
In the Bible God has given a progressive revelation of Himself; “line upon line, jot upon jot” as mankind was able to grasp it. This booklet follows that trail, starting with Adam, going through Abraham and Moses, the Kings and the Prophets and into the New Testament with Christ and the Twelve, ending with Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles.
