RESTORATION OF MAN
The effect of the knowledge of good and evil was to establish the soul of man through the power of choice.
By choice, we mean man’s ability to over ride his conscience at will, a rare privilege given to man by God to make man yield to his conscience, the voice of the spirit he was originally created in.
The willingness of man to yield to the voice of his conscience became the springboard of God’s redemptive plan for man which was to bond the spirit of man with the Holy Spirit for man’s spiritual dominance over the flesh which until then was being used against man.
“For if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit that dwelleth in you.” Romans 8:11
