God made to grow all trees 1pleasant to the sight, and 2good for food; also, the tree of life was in the middle of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Only one test by Satan was given to mankind in the garden: do not eat the fruit from that tree.  They failed that one test. Genesis 2:9, 3:1-22 Eve saw the tree of knowledge of good and evil was 1good for food, 2pleasant to the eye, 3and would make one wise and she ate. Then God said, “Man is become like one of Us, to know good and evil.” Plan A- the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8 He (God) chose us in Him (Jesus) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.  Ephesians 1:4 Eating from the tree did not make Eve evil: the tree not evil but was a knowledge of good and evil. There is no record of Adam and Eve sinning again. Make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? Matthew 12:33 Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, nor can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. All trees bringing not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Matthew 7:17 The strong meat of righteousness belongs to them of full age, (perfect, complete) who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil: like God.  This is the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  Hebrews 5:13-6:1-2 To give them in Zion beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning, garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; so they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified. They build the old wastes, they raise up former desolations, and repair waste cities, desolations of many generations.  Isaiah 61:3 Ye are come unto mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling. Hebrews 12:22
