I fucking hate doing this, I honestly do. Personally I wish everyone would just be, but you just keep pushing and pushing and pushing until you've pushed right into me. I can argue your texts better than you up and down all day long even though i've never taken any interest in even wanting to. So here is what I think about what you push.
This line is found in deuteronomy where all the laws of the israelites are found and it reiterates the first mistake ever made by man which led to exile from the garden of Eden.
Most know the story well, some better than the rest, but the first mistake is often missed and the second is the one that takes its place.
I would assume you know the story concludes with the fault of eve being tricked by the snake to eat of the forbidden fruit, but that is not the entire story nore is it that simple the fault alone be laid on the shoulders of Eve. For the story also tells of how the snake tricked her into eating the fruit, it was by first exposing to her that what she had been told was not the truth at all.
The story says Adam is given the laws by his god in which he is to keep 100% commitment, but Adam makes a slight change to the laws which is where this story truly begins.
Adam thinks of Eve as naive and in his attitude changes the law from "not to eat" of the forbidden fruit but to "not even touch it". This is Mans very first mistake changing the word he was given.
As the word was not given in its 100% correct form, the snake was given opportunity to create the disbelief which led to eating of the fruit. The snake nudges Eve into the fruit showing her what Adam said was false and in doing so made her open to his suggestion to violate the words given to Adam by his God.
Here we see the first mistake ever made by humans is the same in which christians and Jews hold the greatest guilt today.
The line is Deuteronomy 4:2
- You Shall not add to the word which I am commanding you today, nor take away from it. (SP)
- Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you,............ Neither shall ye diminish from it, (masoretic)
Look at it on the bright side at least you'll all be there together forever. Have fun.
