11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. .KJV
The knowledge of this event would have spread into all people groups just as the knowledge of the Creation is known among all peoples. Yet, man has continued to distort the knowledge of God-His purity, Holiness, Righteousness/Justice and Mercy.
The Orphic Egg was one way to explain the beginning of the creation without the Holy God. In our day the evolutionary philosophy is used in the same way. Yet in truth, no matter what way a person believes the universe began and life began one must make religio-philosophic assumptions. Evolutionists are very religious just as I and other creationists are. Whom do we choose to serve and honor: an unknown (assumed) amorphous beginning or a Righteous Holy All Powerful God?
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
