Ever Made a Bad Trade?

It’s just possible that Eve was beguiled by the serpent not because he got her to do something against God’s will, but because she was already like God yet traded that high estate for the lust of the eye – an apple that could make one wise.

Afterward, when they saw what was really going on – saw, that is, through the veil of ‘carnal self-knowledge’ instead of spiritual consciousness, Adam and Eve hid themselves – from THEMSELVES – no one else.

This is what emerged as I read the first entry in the Message Remix Solo on Genesis 3:1-10. To me, this is the Desire for Reconciliation after which we hunger. This fall from grace created the God-shaped void that only He can fill.
