Commentary: God created. We cannot create something from nothing, but God can, and did! He created light and darkness, sky and land and water, tress and plants, sun and moon, birds and fish and all animals, and man; humankind - Adam and Eve. They were given free will, the ability to make choices. They ate from the forbidden tree, and the serpent’s urging, and were expelled from the Garden.
Focus Verses:3:6-13 Adam and Eve only realized they were naked, and were ashamed of it, because they ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Look at advertising, television shows, movies - the amount of clothing being worn is less and less. Nudity is described as tastefully done, en vogue. Yet Adam and Eve were ashamed. Have we lost the knowledge of good and evil? Have we failed to pass it on?
