If unbelief starts with doubt, it starts with a lie too.
Questioning: “Did that really happen?”
It is a rewriting of history.
Such big divides can come from such small seeds.
“Did God really say that?” Doubt. That was the starting point of the break between God and humanity. Has God really made such a prohibition? Hearing Eve’s response (either embellished or stated more fully) that if the prohibition were violated death would result, the tempter presented his challenge: “You will not certainly die.” And finally came the bait: “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (See Genesis 3: 1–5.)
