Trick or Treat?

“…"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it…” Genesis 1:4-6 NIV [italics & emphasis mine]

Lucifer, that old serpent, has never changed his methods in tempting men throughout the ages; he gives half truths dangling only the good side of the coin. He told Eve the truth that ‘they will be like God’ [Genesis 3:22] but he lied about death part when he said they will not die. Eve became enticed with the pleasure of the moment forgetting the eternal consequence…the fruit was pleasing to the eye!

The serpent will show you the pleasure of the moment but not the guilt and consequences of sin. The truth of the matter is, we can choose our actions, this is our inherent gift (freedom of choice), but unfortunately we can not choose the consequences of our actions. Every time you are faced with a decision to make in this generation which says ‘if it feels good do it’, remember that there are consequences to every deed good or bad.
