Can I Understand God This Side of Eden?
1. Before the sin in Eden and after the sin in Eden, man and God understood each other. The sin in the Garden of Eden resulted in the loss of access to the tree of life (Genesis 3:22-24). It did not alter the one matter essential for a return to God. That one thing is language. Language upon which reason is built. Language continued after Eden as it had before. Man continued to be capable of understanding exactly what God said and meant (Genesis chapters 1-3).
