In Christian faith everyone is born with the original sin.
belief that Eve sinned when she ate from the tree of knowledge and therefore burdened the.
rest of humankind with sin and evil. Many people throughout the world believe that the.
myths of their cultures blame the first man or woman for the expulsion from paradise and.
the origin of evil in the world. However, if one reads the Judeo-Christian, Greek and.
Iranian myths of creation closely, one will find that in no case is mankind responsible for.
the evil in the world.
In Genesis, Adam and Eve are told by God not to eat from the tree of knowledge.
of good and evil, for if they do they will die. In no way did God command them not to eat.
from the tree. There was no official prohibition of the tree that was issued. God simply.
told them not to eat from the tree because "in the day that you eat from the of knowledge.
of good and evil you shall surely die"(Genesis 2:17). The author Thomas Mann wrote.
that Eve sinned against herself "but not against God in the sense of offending any.
prohibition of His.for such a prohibition, at least according to the doctrine we have.
received, was not issued." It is for this reason that one can argue that Eve did not defy.
God and therefore did not commit a true sin. Yet even if God made a clear prohibition,.
Eve was not in the right state to know what to do when it came to the serpent tempting.
When Adam and Eve were created they were ignorant of the world around them. .
They had no knowledge of good and evil and therefore could not be held responsible for.
actions taken on account of a third party's words. Many people believe that when the.
serpent approached Eve, its goal was to tempt Eve into eating from the tree. The goal of.
the serpent is irrelevant. The reason for this is that Eve is ignorant. She does not know.
the difference between good and evil, truth and lie, or sincerity and deception. When the.
serpent tells Eve that she will not die if she eats from the tree, but rather that she will gain.
