best thinking is done in the bathroom

so much to write, so little time. hopefully sooner than later.

in any case, one random thought i had in the shower. the Bible says God kicked the human race out of the garden of eden and cursed them, the devil, and the world, because they ate of the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil". now this may be completely whack, but i was thinking, "what exactly is meant by the 'knowledge of good and evil'" and here's my idea. we know without the fall, God would not have had to save sinners, the glory of God's grace and mercy would not have shown through the cross of Christ, etc. so the knowledge of good is the knowledge (and not just intellectual, but Biblically knowing, like you know a person) of Christ, of the glorious grace of God, of His great love for us, of His justice, etc. the knowledge of evil is knowing (again, in the intimate Biblical sense) rebellion and hatred of God and death. just a thought.
