The Master told Chester, I am sure you know the story of Adam and Eve. I am going to tell
you the true meaning of those events. Chester just waited and ate some plums from a basket.
The Master continued, "In Genesis we see how Satan immediately started trying to separate mankind from God."
The Master quoted, "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"
The Master paused. "What is death but the separation of soul from body? Satan is telling her she will have an eternal body if she disobeys God. This is the first lie."
Chester theorized, "Satan can never have his awareness separate from his body, so he can never die. Satan was making the tree of good and evil seem like it was the tree of life. In other words the Tree of Life means achieving a permanent body. Yet Satan claimed the other tree meant not dying. Hmmmm.... The tree of good and evil
represents disobeying God. Ok, go on."
"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."
The Master paused again, "Notice how Satan entices her with her true potential yet seduces her to try and achieve it by disobeying God."
The Master continued, "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.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the
LORD God amongst the trees of the garden."
The Master paused again, "See, immediately Satan has caused mankind to withdraw and hide from God."
The Master continued. "And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
And he said , I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid , because I was naked; and I hid myself.
And he said , Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said , The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done ? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
The Master said, "It gets worse.
And the LORD God said , Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree
of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of
the tree of life." The Master looked at Chester, "You see, Satan started with the humans God had placed in his paradise
and taught them to disobey and separate themselves from God. But it got worse. Angels corrupted the earth further in an
attempt to prevent mankind from achieving their God potential."
