QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE

Quest for knowledge
.
It's quite fascinating to know that what made Eve to be deceived was actually her quest for knowledge. It was not because she wanted to be like God (that is have the glory of God) but because she wanted to know good and evil.
.
Genesis 3;6 NLT
The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her...


.
And she did this because she was a student of Adam and wanted to be on the same level as God who knew everything. Now take note,  Adam was not deceived but did everything he did because he wanted to be on the side of his wife. He being her teacher, said nothing when he saw her taking the wrong step but instead listened to her.

Genesis 3;17 NLT
And to the man he said, “Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,...

When a man begins to regret being at the position God has placed him to be, it's obvious that his DOWNFALL IS CLOSE. Eve was not content that God had made her a student and acted out of greed, to gain more knowledge than God had given to her.

Be careful how you seek knowledge because it might cause you more pain than you can think off, especially when you end up with a false or wrong knowledge. A lot of persons have stepped into wrong doctrines, some have become atheist, and some have been killed for wrong application of knowledge.
.
In this day and time when knowledge is increasing, there is a dire need for us to watch what we listen to and what we permit. The wrongs we permit today,  are the same things that will take hold of us tomorrow to destroy us.
.
Test all spirit and see, if they are of God.
Be led by the Spirit of God.
