VoodooRuutz, you left out a very key aspect in trying to make your point: praising the serpent...
"Therefore just as sin entered the world through one man, and DEATH through sin, and in this way DEATH came to all men, because all sinned."
And the Lord God commanded the man, you are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.
The serpent said to the woman, You surely will not die!
"until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return."
The man has now become like one of us, knowing both good and evil. HE MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO REACH OUT HIS HAND AND TAKE ALSO FROM THE TREE OF LIFE AND EAT, AND LIVE FOREVER.
2 Corinthians 11:3
But I am afraid that just as Eve was DECEIVED BY THE SERPENTS CUNNING, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
A one can argue just exactly what the 'fruit' is, but a one cannot argue that the serpent of Genesis is a liar and deceiver.
