If I am eating the fruits of knowledge then I am involved in fixing what God screwed up and manhandling Him to give me what is good.
When I choose to live my life with thanks to God, I make a choice for Life, which liberates me from the Tree of Knowledge.
Prayer and sovereignty are uniquely entwined while appearing to be seemingly contradictory. So if God is sovereign, what is the purpose of prayer?
God’s Sovereignty is one of those subjects everyone has had trouble with. Only a spiritual man can truly receive this with thanks and a concerted effort.
The paradox is that there are two contradictory realities, God's sovereignty and man's free-will. And while it's a seeming contradiction, Jesus is still Lord.
