Why did God put the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden if He knew it would separate us from Him? Why did He seemingly lead us to failure?
“And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” – Genesis 2.8-9
