Ok, if like me you have been brought up on a diet of good and evil. Get ready to have your mind blown. Let’s start – The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:9)
There were two trees in the centre of the garden. Tree one – tree of life. Tree two – tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Which tree is good and evil on? Correct the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Now what did God said will happen if they eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?
He said – but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die (Genesis 2:17).
If the opposite of life is death. The opposite of good is evil. BUT the knowledge of “good and evil” are on the same tree…that leads to death…!!
So, being good, isn’t good enough to God. You and I have to be “life”.
Its not going to be an easy transition to a mindset of “life” rather than good. Because we have been conditioned to be good and not evil. God never wanted us to be good, He wants to be of life.
