    shall die.” These are the words of God to Adam and Eve. A seemingly simple notion that Adam and Eve contravened after hearing the serpent’s persuasive appeal for power and godlike knowledge. After eating the apple, Adam and Eve were no longer in the state of innocence or a state of moral neutrality. They were able to now perceive the goods and evils of the world upon eating the apple.
