When the Lord Almighty Father commanded man to freely eat every fruits of trees in the Garden, these Trees are the trees that we saw in the field or in the mountain and in the backyard. Trees that bears fruits, fruits that we saw in the market, in the stores. The other Tree that is also in the midst of the garden was a forbidden fruit, fruits of knowledge of good and evil, if thou you touch it or eat it, thou shalt surely die. The tree of life, acknowledge the good and evil, a seed of disobedience to the law of God. Man separated from God and God wisdom, and separated from God 's spirit, man 's spirit die in connection to God 's spirit and lost. From then, man lives on human 's will instead of the God 's will because Adam and Eve while in the garden committed the mortal sin when the serpent seed was implanted in them. They were deceived by Satan, Lucifer.

This response to all that agreed with Mr James Mcardle's comment on 02-08-2011...We cannot or should not use the bible to try to justify our bad habits. Genesis Chapter 1:12 When God created the Heavens and Earth including the trees and herbs of the field God said it Good. Keep in mind God had not created man or woman therefore sin had not come into existence. God said Genesis 2...
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Look what it said from every TREE you eat. He did not say of everything that grows on vines or shurbs such as Pot, Cocaine, Herion, Opium, Halusingens and/or any other mind altering trees such as things like coffee, tobacco, grapes, ect...By right you can do those things because God is giving you the same choice he gave Adam. You too will face that same curse and that is as you said "mind altering" which is why God will have to destroy you and anybody else that will not conform to the Creator. This is exactly the curse,our minds has been altered through this simple act of disobedient. This applies to us ALL! Hope to hear from you soon.
