The Fall of Man

     The Fall of Man

     The day was wonderful with sweet wind blowing. I walked in the sunshine without any purpose. Suddenly, the Lord God said that I was free to eat from any tree in the garden; but I must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when I ate of it I shall surely die. I was so curious that I couldn't help coming to the middle of the garden. Wow, I just couldn't believe my eyes. I had never seen such a beautiful before. The leaves of the tree was fresh, green and clear. It seemed that they had just washed by the rain. The fruits were shing with red light. How much I wanted to get one of them. But I knew I couldn't do that at the risk of losing my life. I was confused. How could I do? How I wish I hadn't seen the tree. At that moment, a voice came to me, "don't believe what the Lord God said. He just wanted to keep wisdom himself. In fact, this is only the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat it, you'll gain wisdom." I looked around, it was the serpent. Although I knew it was crafty, I still decided to try. Because everything was tempting, especially wisdom. I took some and ate them. Just at that moment, my eyes opened and I had feelings and emotions. It felt so wonderful that I gave some to my husband. The Lord God knew it and was angry with what we had done. He punished us severely. We were forced to get out of the Eden. I had to bear pains in

    childbearing and my husband had to bear painful toil. But in my heart, I never regretted what I had done. Because we gained wisdom. Man can create wonderful life by themselves. What I was afraid was the enmity between man and snakes. I knew one day man would be more powerful. I wished that man would not hurted the snakes, especially those couldn't hurt us.
