A is for Apple
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Genesis 3: 1-5
Good morning Ladies,
Again I am late in getting my post up. I thought today was Wednesday :0. And I do realize that I'm stretching the A a tad bit and I'm sure we all know it wasn't an apple that Eve ate. But I've been stuck on this thought for two weeks now and thought it would be fun to see what you all thought.
THE SERPENT SPOKE TO THE WOMAN.
I was listening to Brian Broderson the other day and a woman called in who had just lost her beloved pet and the question was, "will our pets be in heaven?" Brian went on to explain his thoughts and then brought up C.S. Lewis who believed that all the animals in the garden of Eden spoke with Adam and Eve. They had voices and the ability to reason and think for themselves. Then he went on to talk about the scripture where the trees are clapping their hands or branches if you prefer.
My question is, "Do you believe the animals had audible voices? The serpent did speak to Eve did he not? Of course it has nothing to do with salvation but I find it to be an interesting thought.
