22 And Jehovah God went on to say: “Here the man has become like one of us in knowing good and bad, and now in order that he may not put his hand out and actually take [fruit] also from the tree of life and eat and live to time indefinite,—” 23 With that Jehovah God put him out of the garden of E´den to cultivate the ground from which he had been taken. 24 And so he drove the man out and posted at the east of the garden of E´den the cherubs and the flaming blade of a sword that was turning itself continually to guard the way to the tree of life.
Yeah, I couldn't help but notice God says "man has become like 'one of us'", sounds like a conspiracy to me! Who exactly are god's conspirators?
and now in order that he may not put his hand out and actually take [fruit] also from the tree of life and eat and live to time indefinite,—”
God confirms that Satan was telling the truth, and God admits that God lied to Adam and Eve. This is right in the bible, folks. God previously said "you will die" from eating from the tree, nope turns out the tree will cause "live(ing) to time indefinite", God needs to actually keep man from eating, kick him out of the garden, and arrange for Man's death to prevent this. God would have been truthful if he said "I will kill you for trying to be like me".
There we have it folks!! Satan has certainly gotten a bad rap in this, I think we should send him a card or something. Poor bastard has been the real hero in this saga.
