Question 415

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? In what way, How did God know Good and Evil in Genesis 3:22?

Genesis 3:22 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.


God knew good when he had created the Original Earth, the Angels, and the Universe PERFECT.

The Bible states in Ezekiel 28:15 in reference to Lucifer (Satan)…

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

God knew evil when Satan (Lucifer) along with one third (1/3rd) of all the angels that God had created rebelled against him.

Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (13) For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was bor

In Conclusion:

To point out a fact, Genesis 3:22 PROVES that there IS NO “Young Earth”.

Genesis 3:22 SPEAKS OF a time when ALL THINGS were Perfect (good) in God’s eyes speaking of the time BEFORE satan’s rebellion and the temptation of Eve in the Garden of Eden PRIOR to the RE-CREATION of the earth for the habitation for Mankind mentioned in Genesis 1:3-26.

When Lucifer and the angels that he convinced rebelled against God, sin had entered in which incurred the Lord’s Judgement upon them and the Original Earth that they had lived on.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD, and there is none else.

Jeremiah 4:23-26 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. (24) I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. (25) I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. (26) I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

Those that ENDORSE and Teach Young Earth Creationism are either Ignorant of or Refuse to believe THE TRUTH of God’s Word.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
