The story of Adam and Eve has been misunderstood by all who lead us. Adam and Eve were told, but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will
surely die (Genesis 2:17 NASB). I think we all know it would have been good to listen to God, but we did not know good yet so how could it have been possible to know that God gave a good command? Knowing some possible answer beforehand cannot help when you cannot determine whether the answer is good. Adam and Eve were in a lack of knowledge (about good and evil), and because of that, they were destroyed (My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge Hosea 4:6).
Boredom can be, a lack of knowledge about what to do, and destroys many as they do anything possible to leave it. Fear, a lack of knowledge about impending harm- real or imagined. Do you know someone who is anti-social-isn't that just a lack of knowledge about how to talk to people or what to say? In my new book, Faith and the Lack of Knowledge, I show how standing in the lack of knowledge (without sinning) is the principle definition of faith in the Bible given in the garden of Eden, and by that expose how God has been intimately trying to grow your faith in Him all your life.
