It really was an apple. But they got the whole serpent thing wrong. Of my own volition, I ate it. Do you think a nearby snake and a little apple is enough to seduce me?
As if God was petty enough to ask us not to eat from his favorite tree. I walked in the Garden with him every day. He never said anything like that.
I’m pretty sure sin has nothing to do with apples or special trees. I’m offended when people blame me. You think Cain killed Abel because his mom munched on a piece of fruit one afternoon?
But the truth, that’s not what stories are for, are they? I’ve heard my story told wrong a thousand times.
