If you tell your children that they can have all of the toys in their room but they are forbidden to open that box in the corner, the first thing they will do when you leave is to open that box. The only reason you would have for telling them not to open it is that you want them to open it. That is exactly what God did when he told Adam and Eve NOT to eat of the so-called 'Forbidden Fruit'; God WANTED them to eat of it as he knew full well that they would. Therefore, God lied. .......................
Out of all the number of trees on Earth I read that only one tree belonged to God.
By saying 'Do Not eat......' was as if God put up a No trespassing sign up on His one-and-only tree.
If you had a generous neighbor who said you can come over any time you want and have as much fruit from his fruit trees as you want, except for one particular tree, would you think ill of your generous neighbor ?
Adam and Eve were Not in one room. The whole earth was God given to them according to Psalms 115:16.
So, it was more like a whole gigantic earth-sized room filled with goodies.
They were Not wanting for food, etc. so there was No lack of food or hunger to tempt them.
Before breaking God's Law their leanings were upright and righteous meaning they could only break the law on purpose, whereas imperfect children have leanings toward wrongdoings and do things by accident, by mistake.
If you told a child he would die if he opened that forbidden box would a small child understand, whereas husband Adam and wife Eve understood they would return to dust according to Genesis 3:19.
