God demanded of Adam that he not eat from the tree of knowledge Adam could eat the fruit of any other tree in the Garden of Eden but not that of the tree of knowledge And the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress and to keep it And the lord God commanded the man saying of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil thou shalt surely die Gen 215-17 Eve Adams wife was the first to break Gods commandment She encounters the serpent who tempts her to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge He lures her by saying that she will not die if she eats the fruit and that indeed she will be like God Eve who is later to blame the serpent for her actions is tempted by motives of power And the serpent said unto the woman ye shall not surely die for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof then your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil Gen 34-5 Eve wants to be on the same plane as the gods she wants wisdom so that she can be like God she wants to have god-like power which is the power of knowledge And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes and a tree to be desired to make one wise she took of the fruit thereof and did eat and gave also unto her husband with her and he did eat Gen 36 Adam eats because his wife persuades him to eat He breaks faith with God his wifes influence upon him at that moment is stronger than Gods This is Adams failing he places more trust in a human being than in the divine
