When Satan tempted Eve, he began, “Indeed has God said…” (Genesis 3:1). Satan was referring to the instruction God gave Adam in Genesis 2:16-17.
Eve had to rely on memory alone. She had no written record of the command. We, however, have the Bible to aid and strengthen our memories as to what God has said to us.
Therefore, when we need to resist temptation, we have a weapon with which to do so that Eve did not have. Let us use it that we might escape temptation and do what is right.
