The Blogging Parson has been doing an interesting series on Knowledge, Trust and Expertise. In reading through his posts I started to think about the fall and how Adam and Eve were recorded as eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Could it be that our pursuit of knowledge is actually part of the fall and if so how can we redeem knowledge as being a Godly pursuit?
I’m also asking why is it, in our development of of the doctrine of the Total Depravity of Man; we leave out that we also ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good…
Perhaps Paul is referring to this when he say’s I don’t do what I know I should do and I do what I know I should not do?
