Introduction: Let’s open our Bibles to Genesis 3. Last Sunday we learnt some principles from the mistakes of Adam and Eve there in the Garden of Eden. Today, I would like to continue from where I stopped. After placing man and woman in the garden, God commanded them, “You must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” One day Eve struck a conversation with the serpent. The serpent was used Continue reading →
