> creatures to the angels and of course God".We are saying the same thing being that intelligence made them as gods, lesser gods.That is consistent with the jest of the story.The expulsion from the Garden is the same as death.From that is what Jesus came to restore as the tree of life.Not any of our works merit our own salvation, only Jesus' works do.Being good, has nothing to do with it.Evil potential will always be present in all of us being subjected to vanity without our will.As lesser gods, we are subject to failure because of it.But at the same time, victorious in Jesus.Blessings, AJ

The problem with evil is that Adam and Eve were innocent as babies until they gained knowledge to know good and evil.
At that point, the separation/death between God and man transpires because Adam and Eve became as gods. Lower case g.
Our ability, after we've gained knowledge of what is good and what is not, we become as gods of our own desires.
And that is the problem of evil, resident potential in all of us.
