King James version

'But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.'

My question is...

Why would a god plant one of these specific trees in the first place, knowing how curious the human mind is?

One thought: The tree was a test of loyalty and love of the couple. Without a strong (but, note: not irresistible) impulse like curiosity, it would not be much of a test.

Love and Loyalty are best proved by a strong test that, if one passes, is all the more valuable and permanent.

A book by our Michael Hogan

Sebastian and the Invisible Island tells the tale of a young boy stranded on a mysterious island where his only hope for rescue lies in feuding extraterrestrials who also yearn for home.

“This is a great book to enjoy between parent and preteens or younger. It drew us with its intriguing tropical island setting, heroics and strange goings on.” -Sally

“Excellent reading material for the age group. A breath of fresh air for young people in an area that is growing darker.” –Robert

Available in Kindle ($2.99) and paperback ($9.97).
