When Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, what was the result? I am not asking what God did to them for eating, that is ejecting them from the Garden; but rather what was the result to Adam and Eve personally. The usual assumption is that they, having eaten of the fruit of that tree, now knew good from bad. I ask the following: was obedience to God's statement to not eat of the fruit good and disobedience evil? It would seem to me that was and would be so. Did they not know that obedience was good and disobedience bad before they ate the fruit? How could obedience be good and disobedience be bad if they didn't know that? And if they did know that, then what happened when they ate the fruit. What does it mean that they ate the fruit and then had the knowledge of good and evil? What changed?
God told Adam what he did wrong to suffer his fate. After they ate from the tree they knew good from evil. Gen 3:17 Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it': NKJV
It is not wrong to heed the voice of your wife ( or anyone else), but it is wrong to believe anyone else when they tell you to not believe the voice of God. Now they, as well as the world, know that if we believe God we will live. To not believe God we know we will be judged for our sins and die. We know good from evil.
God knew the end from the beginning.
