The Tree Of Knowledge: Cause Of Freewill? by Nobody: 10:42am On Jul 24, 2016
Fellow Christians, this question recently came into my mind. If Adam and Eve had not eaten of the Tree of Knowledge, would we have had the abililty to think independently or would we have been beings designed to be uncivilised and unaware of it? Remember, the fruit opened their eyes, and they realised they were Unclad......

Is this fruit the major cause of the freewill we possess?

Man has always had the choice of freewill, and that is why the first humans were given instructions in the first place, to instill a sense of order. This same free will allowed Eve to choose to pluck a fruit and Adam in his own freewill chose to eat it.

The only role the tree had to play is that once eaten it brought about conscience. Why? Because the moment one was to eat it, they would disobey God. Nobody needed to tell Adam and Eve that they had disobeyed. The moment they ate it, their conscience was awoken. Perhaps not directly by the fruit itself, but in consequence of eating it. They hid themselves without being told to. The first feeling of guilt ever recorded. The consequence of sin.

The fruit did not give freewill, it merely opened man up
to wrongdoinging and thus a conscience was awoken.

Prior to eating it, a conscience was not needed, because it was just obedience to every instruction from God. But once eaten with freewill it burdened Adam and Eve. Most people tend to blame Eve, however Adam had the same measure of freewill every other creation. Conscience is the direct result of eating the fruit. Freewill is ingrained in creation.

That's where freewill comes in.

You cannot say that knives should not be made because some choose to murder with them. Everything is there for a purpose. But the choice on how to use them lies on individuals.

The purpose Of God creation is to love God and worship Him, in this kind of Love, God want that the choice to Love Him should be from your own WILL, not something you are program to do. Without free will to choose,
Adam and Eve would have been mere puppets. True love always requires choice. God wanted Adam and Eve to choose to love and trust Him. The only way to give this choice would have been to command something that was not allowed. The choice is very simple, They were only commanded not to eat from one tree out of the MANY.

Since everything God planted in the garden was Good, the natural choice of something to choose from would be the knowledge of evil. If you read closely, you will notice that even if Adam and Eve did not eat the fruit, they will still gain knowledge of Good and evil through the instruction given by God, for example, how did eve came to know that by eating from the tree, they are disobeying God ? And they will die ?

U put a 2yr old child in a room with loads of highly dangerous livewires on one side and loads of baby toys on the oda side..
Telling the innocent child not to go near the side with d livewires..then u leave the room and go watch from the window(knowing fully well the child is 99.9% bound to go near the wires, either out of curiosity or ignorance).

Expectedly, The child gets super-electrocuted by the wires thereafter, only for u to get saddened and angry..knowing it's bound to apun.

Am not an atheist, but does giving the power of choice to an ignorant person depict FREEWILL?

U and I know that someone without the knowledge of Good and evil is 100% ignorant..
So, Why give such man the dangerous power of CHOICE, knowing fully well that they wud err?
Wud u gv a non-certified doctor urself to treat and toy with ur life to express FREEWILL on the doctor's part?

FREEWILL is what was given unto man, after the knowledge of good and evil was introduced upon eating the fabulous fruit..but what was given to man before this wasn't FREEWILL.
Christianity is yet to define what it is, given unto man b4 eating the fruit...it's neither Freewill nor Love.
There was a Reason God put that tree in that Garden, KNOWING FULLY WELL that Adam and Eve would eat of it, Yet. Commanded them not to.
More like Man has been positioned To fail sinx he was created, only to take the blame afterwards.

Is'nt the bolded statement a contradiction? Prior to eating the fruit, adam and Eve was just in obedience to every instruction from God. That means they were merely robots before eating the fruit. What you are saying is that the only Freewill God granted them is to choose between eating the fruit or not, other than that, they were incapable of disobeying God.

To me the only error Adam and Eve made was eating the Fruit of the tree of Knowledge first, if they had eating the fruit from the tree of life, they would have been immortal. That means God would not have the power to threaten them anymore, they could then go and eat from the fruit of the tree of Knowledge without God being in a position to do anything.

You made a nice point there, but I would think that your statement that conscience was awoken is more correct than saying that the disobedience brought about a conscience. Don't you think that God must have created then with a conscience, but this conscience came into play when they erred? In other words, I don't think that conscience is a direct result of the sin.

Perhaps I didn't state it clearly or you didn't understand me, but we are saying the same thing.

The guilt shows the awakened conscience of Eve and her husband.

It's a tree of discernment. It gives man ability to judge right and wrong . The tree was not an evil tree. It was meant for man to eat . But they eat it prematurely

Genesis 3:5
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Genesis 3:22
And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Hebrews 5:14
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Nobody can equate childish innocence with decisions made by an older and more responsible person, so halt your analogous comparison.

I'm surprised some people can reason your explosive talk and somehow link that to freewill and love.

I do not believe you understand what I was saying. Nowhere did I state that they were robots. The thought to eat the fruit simply had never crossed their minds. Not until, with the freewill bestowed on her like every other human, Eve decided she would like to eat the fruit.

God was clearly hurt by their choices as He gave them all they needed in the garden except for the tree. Choosing the tree was a hot slap to gods face. Its like being cheated on by someone you lobed and cared for and gave everything and yet it wasnt enough.

God does have emotions y'know. I reckon he is hurt by our reckless choices and evil even today.

Lolz..then..let's do away wit d freewill concept sinx God(in ur comment) was hurt by their choice(which is normal)..but also got angry ova it(which is strange, he gv the freewill remember?)...thrz no justification for anger or outrage on the choices of sum1 u gv freewill in the first place(if it was indeed freewill).

are you kidding? freewill without conscience? I have never heard of that.

if Adam and eve had freewill before eating the fruit(which of cos every experienced living organism has) then it means they had conscience.

it's that conscience that made God give them instructions. only robots have no conscience.

On the contrary, you are the confused one and should ignore, as it is the best option for you.

Freewill does not require a conscience. It means you can steal and kill if you please, and you don't have to feel bad about it. A conscience means that you are free to do so, too, but you know of the consequences and are worried about carrying out such evil acts because of their nature. A conscience is what maintains law nowadays. But we tend to think of criminals evil because they do not listen to their conscience and in some instances do not have one.

Next time, before you display your lower reasoning, try and stop to think.
