Have you ever felt like God was keeping something from you? This is Satan’s plan. He implied that God was keeping something from Eve, “don’t you want to know good and evil and become like the gods?” Think of it as sex. God asks us not to have sex until we are married. God asks Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit now, it was for another time. He was not keeping anything from them. He was only saying, “Not yet!” He is establishing the Pattern of Agency and Choice, the process of the Gospel.
