How did you manage to skip over "thou shalt not eat of it", when jumping to your conclusion?
Let me ask you, what part of that verse was God's decree? What actually happened? Who's running the universe?
Are you only reading what agrees with your perspective?
Well, my perspective is after the fall, so what other "perspective" is there? God gave the Law " But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it " Then He decreed " in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die ." They ate. They died. I ask again, who's running the universe?
Further, are you not guilty of adding to the word, by including "when"?
No, I'm not adding to God's word, just giving my 2 cents. I'm not the only one rendering the verse that way, nor do I believe it changes the meaning, for example:
But you must never eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because when
you eat from it, you will certainly die." God's Word
