What Is It?
The fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is usually portrayed as an apple. But the Bible doesn't say what kind of fruit it really was. What kind of fruit do you suppose could impart such knowledge and bring death upon the whole human race?
For that matter, what is the knowledge of good and evil? Is it a relief from ignorance, or something much more disturbing? Today we take a look at Scripture and explore the issue of the tree, its fruit, and the true nature of the knowledge it brought to all mankind.

Knowledge vs. Discernment
Knowledge without discernment is just a collection of information that we may or may not correctly understand, and which, without wisdom, can often cause much more harm than good.
So it is with the knowledge of good and evil. And yet, this knowledge is not neutral like so much other knowledge is. As we talk today about what that knowledge just might be, we discover that it was not a remedy for some type of ignorance, but a distortion of vision, such as the knowledge that something is oblong and yellow when it is really circular and blue. And just like all knowledge, whether knowledge of facts or knowledge of the twisting of God's nature, we desperately need God's wisdom and discernment to lead us through.
The world is fed a steady diet of a perception of life that is based upon perversions of and deviations from the nature and laws of God and Kingdom principles. It is our undeniable responsibility to take the Light into that darkness, reaching out to every last soul through every last means, even if we rescue only one.
Currently there are more than 9,252,076 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
