    Or no one added to anything and this is what God told to Eve, a conversation not recorded but only repeated by Eve at a later time. Never does God charge with adding to his commands regarding the tree and it's fruit.

    God told Adam what the law was.
    I don't believe God would have told Eve something different from what He told Adam.
    Man is the head of woman.
    Christ is the head of man.
    God is the head of Christ.

    That's fine but personal belief is not evidence.

    How did your statement of an unrecorded conversation have more weight than what I said?

    Because I have not made the claim that, "one of them added to God's Word". There is no evidence that anyone added anything to God's word. We have what God told Adam, then we have what Eve says God told both given to a writer by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. There is zero evidence to suggest what Eve said is not what she was told.

    Satan made Eve doubt God's word, saying she wouldn't die if she ate.
    Now she was doubting what God said and then she took the next step, she handled it.
    And then when she touched it, and she didn't die, she then started to examine it.
    She saw it was pleasing to the eye - lust of the eyes
    She saw that it was good for food - lust of the flesh
    she saw that it could make one wise - exalting herself would be the pride of life.

    Now look at James 1
    1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
    1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
    1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    Eve was drawn away of her own lust when she took that first step.

    I've always been taught that 3. is that you do it of your own free will. In other words, someone isn't holding a shotgun to your head making you sin.

    Then, since there is no record in the Bible of Adam and Eve having children before the fall, they must have eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil on a Tuesday (two sins for the price of one).:idea:

    The did fulfill God's first law, so they did not sin about it.

    My own personal interpretation is that "knowing about good and evil" refers to our passing judgment on people. We are advised to resist doing that, though sometimes, such as in a court of law, I don't see how it can be avoided.
