The Tree of Knowledge Trap: Overcoming Shame & False Humility (Lesley Rieland)

What can we learn from the Garden of Eden and our choice between the two trees? Does that same choice still exist for us today? Lesley discusses the seed of shame planted into humanity since Adam and Eve, how it hides within modern Christianity, and how to overcome it. Although the slogan of “It’s not religion; it’s relationship” is widespread, most of the church is still slipping into the same ditch of evaluating their relationship with God on the wrong basis of the knowledge of good and evil. Others fall into the opposite ditch of “hyper-grace” which Lesley briefly discusses. We are drawn into each of these ditches by the same means which Satan first baited Adam and Eve. The differences between guilt and shame as well as godly conviction versus condemnation are also addressed.
