Good and Evil

We were born

With the knowledge

Of good and evil

Not that we are either

Good or evil

But that we have

Knowledge of good and evil

Passed down to us

From the two

Who ate from

The tree of knowledge

In the beginning

 

That in itself

Was not the sin

It is how we choose

To use what we know

That determines

What is good or evil

 

Free Will

If we have a choice
Or free will
God had to give us
Two things to choose from
Himself or another
Good or evil
But if all things are of God
What is the choice

No matter what choice we make
It will eventually
Bring us closer to God

The choice must be
How do we get to him
Through heaven or hell
St. Luke 18:19
“…Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.”

 

Tree of Life

Are we a product

Of the tree of knowledge

Of good and evil

Or are we an offspring

Of the tree of life

Which tree did

We fall from

 

Before

The Word of God

Appears

It must first

Take root

 

Genesis 3:24

“So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

Revelations 22:16

“…I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”

 

Original Sin

Who gets the credit

For good or evil actions

Does God get credit for the good

And another get credit for evil

 

All that God created was good

But it was not good

That man should be alone

So he made from the man

A woman

Who was credited for

The original sin

 

She who knew no sin

But her action

Credited to her as sin

 

But that action

Gave rise to a savior

Even if it cost her eternal life

 

So what appears to be

Original sin

In the light that it gave rise

To her savior

Jesus Christ

Turns out to be

The saving grace

 

That action

Brought into existence

Everything we know

 

Tree of Knowledge

The world he saved

Was this world

The one we have created

The one we live in now

 

He put the knowledge

Of this world in a tree

The tree of knowledge

Of good and evil

 

The name of the tree tells us

That to have knowledge

We must know both

Good and evil

 

And for these two

To grow from

The same seed

Tells us

You cannot

Have one

Without the other

 

How is it

Good and evil

Grow together

In one tree

 

Everything we know now

Was in that tree

 

We are the gods

They wanted to be

 

Genesis 3:5

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

 

Psalms 82:6

“I have said, Ye are gods…”

Free Will

If we have a choice

Or free will

God had to give us

Two things to choose from

Himself or another

Good or evil

 

But since all things are of God

What is the choice?

No matter what choice we make

It brings us closer to God

 

The choice must be

How do we get to him

Through heaven or hell

 

St. Luke 18:19

“…Why call thou me good?  none is good, save one, that is, God.”
