Don't Take a Bite!!!!
The root of sin can be traced back to three key factors: pride, possession, and passion. This concept is first introduced in Genesis 3:6, where it states that "when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate."
At the heart of this passage is the idea of pride, the belief that we are better or more important than others. In the case of Adam and Eve, their pride led them to believe that they were entitled to the fruit of the tree, despite God's warning not to eat from it.
But pride is not the only factor at play in this passage. There is also the idea of possession, the belief that we are entitled to certain things or rights that others do not have. In the case of Adam and Eve, their possession of the fruit of the tree was seen as a sign of their superiority, and they were willing to go against God's wishes in order to hold onto it.
Finally, there is the factor of passion, the intense desire for something that consumes us and leads us to make decisions that are not in our best interest. In the case of Adam and Eve, their passion for the fruit of the tree led them to ignore the potential consequences and give in to temptation.
But how does Satan play into all of this? As the story progresses, we see that Satan uses his cunning and deceit to manipulate Adam and Eve into making the wrong decision. He does this by using half-truths and twisted logic to convince them that their pride, possession, and passion are justified and necessary. But despite Satan's efforts, God does not abandon his creations. Instead, he sends Jesus to remove the curse of sin and restore the relationship between humanity and himself. And after Jesus' resurrection, he sends the Holy Spirit to guide and empower believers to overcome the temptations of Satan and live in obedience to God.
