    Soul Snack 43/13 ... 7 Fruits to not Pick

    Why do the values of this world collide with the values of heaven? 

    Yep - they really do smash head-on!!!!

    The world honors:

    • sexual athleticism
    • heroes of drinking
    • violent men
    • greed
    • old wine
    • an independent, proud human spirit and
    • man's own collective abilities.

    Heaven honors:

    • sexual purity
    • seekers of righteousness
    • peacemakers
    • generosity
    • and creates new wine
    • the knee bent expression of humility and
    • those who acknowledge the Lord in all their ways.

    The world's values are the destructive fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. Heaven's values are constructive fruit from the Tree of Life.

    It is only when fruit from the Tree of Life is chosen that your tastebuds can seize how rotten fruit from the Tree of Knowledge surely is.

    The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Gen 2:15-17)

    (God has not changed the rules - it remains disobedience to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. It is also not found in heaven, only the Tree of Life is.)
