EVE By H.B. Moore Book Review #1 False doctrine!!!
First of all, this book is VERY WELL WRITTEN, it is intriguing and makes you want to keep going to find out what happens next. It makes you think, wow, maybe it really could have happened this way. I personally could relate to the personality of Eve in the sense that she was sooooooo curious and was always asking Adam soooooo many questions!!! I liked how the story went back and forth between Adam's thoughts and Eve's.
Be aware Christians, This book is not Biblically sound! i noticed right away upon listening that things did not seem to line up Biblically speaking with the word of God!!! even though scripture was continually being used, the events did not correlate with what the Bible ACTUALLY says.
Lucifer did not appear to Eve as a man, but a serpent! "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" (Genesis 3:1)
There was no death in the world til sin entered. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12) This book shows death entering into the world when Lucifer entered the garden, however, that is NOT what the Bible says!!! The Bible says that death began the moment SIN entered into the Garden, which was the moment man FIRST disobeyed God. "For since by man came death. . . For as Adam all die" (1 Corinthians 15:21-22).
The Bible does NOT clearly state, although there was animals killed after sin entered the world for sacrifices, to push man's sin forward, till Jesus came and became the final sacrifice for our sin, For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous (Romans 5:19). However, the Bible does NOT clearly state that animals were eaten until AFTER the flood!!! "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." (Genesis 9:3)
When i realized that the story was beginning to allude that Eve had relations with Lucifer, i realized that this book HAD to be written by a Mormon, because the false doctrine, that Cain was the son of Lucifer, that is no where found in the Word Of God, is a Mormon belief. The Bible clearly states that Cain is the son of Adam and Eve and he was NOT born of the devil. "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord." (Genesis 4:1)
After looking up the author and seeing where she graduated, i knew i was right about what i thought! i immediately turned off the story. Just like Lucifer appeared to Eve as a serpent in the garden, and deceived her to eat the fruit, Lucifer or one of his minions appeared to Joseph Smith and deceived him with false doctrine, telling him that he had "new" knowledge.
" But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Galations 1:8-9)
I enjoy when an author uses their imagination to make a Biblical story come to life, as long as the story does not in any way differentiate from what the actual Biblical scriptures say!!!! However, this author, while quoting scriptures, over and over again, then contradicts what the Bible ACTUALLY says. Don't be deceived readers, although intriguing, this book is loaded with the devil's lies!!! God Bless and check out
