Don’t touch that tree in the middle

*Don’t touch that tree in the middle.*

_After the Lord God settled Adam in the luscious Garden of Eden, He gave Adam one simple order:  Enjoy everything you like in the Garden.  Don’t touch that tree in the middle. Don’t eat of its fruit. But Adam was unable to keep this simple command._
*_Where does evil and disobedience come from? Let us head to today’s Gospel to look for answer:_*
*_”From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder,  adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly.  All these evils come from within and they defile.”  (Mark 7: 21 – 23)._*
_There is no remedy for evil and sin except in the provisions of the second creation: You must be born again in Spirit and fire. Have you undergone this baptism?  Do you want it?_
