Eve not excused for being deceived | Fellowship Room
She had been given a clear commandment. Her conversation with the serpent showed that she understood the commandment. No one twisted her arm. She let herself be deceived.

You’re out of the sinning business now | Fellowship Room
My friend related how she was talking with a Christian when he said he planned to do something that she knew was sinful. Her reply was excellent. “Don’t you do that. You’re out of the sinning business now.”

Sin is Good

How can that be?  That is how Eve saw the fruit God had forbidden that she or Adam eat.  She observed that it was “good for food…a delight to the eyes, and…desired to make one wise” (Gen. 3:6).

It was “good” but it ruined the blessing of life in the garden.

It was “good” but it damaged the first couple’s marriage.

It was “good” but it destroyed a family.

It was “good” but it made worship worthless.

It was “good” but severed man’s intimate relationship with God.

No matter how “good” we may consider sin to be, it will have the last word and it will destroy what is genuinely good.
