Adam and Eve, divine purpose, carnal information, and sacred knowledge are topics, today.  (No BATTLE AXE is provided.)  The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “Imelda” (Level 6 with 12,493 points, a member since December 28, 2013) posted the following:

 

Did God not want Adam & Eve to have knowledge?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  O ye simple, understand wisdom:  and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.  Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.  For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.  All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.  They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.  Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.  For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.  I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.  The fear of the LORD is to hate evil:  pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom:  I am understanding; I have strength.  By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.  (Proverbs 8:  5-15, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Belief, Faith, and Proof (03/02/2014); Miracles and Visitations? (03/03/2014); Is Science the Right Tool? (12/04/2013); To Grieve the Spirit? (12/05/2013); Relating to GOD? (11/05/2013); Does Satan Know? (11/06/2103); A Relationship not Just Knowledge? (06/25/2013); Lost Without GOD? (06/26/2013); When Does Judgment Begin? (06/27/2013)

 

“Imelda”, here are a few points to consider that are helpful for those who receive knowledge from GOD through Jesus Christ:

(1.)  As a condition for their existence, all living creatures are bombarded by, and respond to, streams of data generated within by their own tissue and organs, and from their physical surroundings.  Awareness is stirred by such aspects of flesh (we say, carnal being) as the appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, craving for sex), sensation (hearing, seeing, tasting, touching) and emotional/mental events (e.g., desire, fear, imagination, recall).

(2.)  Awareness also should respond to the presence of the spirit content that makes up divinity.  By their disobedience and presumption, the holy pair committed human consciousness to be under a permanent limit of fleshly knowledge.  Thus, intellect, logic, mathematics, reason, and science can not detect, eliminate and remove sin; can not establish love, peace, and perfection; can not provide salvation; and can not establish eternal life.

(3.)  Rightly understood, genuine knowledge is information that provides benefit and value, and should be fitted to ongoing order as well as existing priorities and purposes.  Knowledge that does not address specific needs, and is not directly related to events and instances in human experience is held to be abstract, groundless, pointless, or speculative.  All knowledge that is factual (some say, true) does not “bear weight” in judgment, does not bring honor to those who possess it, and is not useful for survival and continuing life (e.g., fine details, minutiae, and trivia).

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  For example, (4.)  The effect and process of sacred knowledge is by the active presence and operation of divinity.  Thus, even for finite beings, knowledge of the holy is a peculiar form of power that the living may apply for their own benefit, and to continue the existence of all.  The many forms of sacred knowledge include discernment (ability to use ones own divine substance to recognize the sacred content in events, other persons, purposes, statements, etc.), divine law, prophecy, revelation, and holy writings.  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your knowledge and faith from GOD.
