Star Rating: 3.5 / 5
I chose this book because I found the subject matter to be quite interesting. A Law From Eden is determined to break down and decipher parts of the Bible that may be confusing or controversial to some people. As most of us know, the Bible is not the easiest book to read, and despite being someone who grew up in a Christian household that went to church on Sundays and most major holidays, I still had very little understanding of the complex writings of the Bible. I enjoyed the Bible stories in Sunday school, as well as what my family and I would discuss at home, but this book touches on so much more than Noah’s ark and David and Goliath. It talks about topics that may be taboo in certain parts of the world.
The first part of the book delves into Adam and Eve and what is known as Original Sin. The author defines for the reader what the sex of Sodom and Gomorrah is and what the Bible says about different types of sex, including homosexuality. This book is for the more mature reader of the Bible who would like to discuss topics such as these.
The second part of the book deals with light versus darkness. The author proceeds to explain what many of the key terms of the Bible mean, including wickedness, deceit, and inventors of evil things. This part of the book was particularly interesting because it speaks about mercy and compassion for those who have given in to evil. It also talks about the church and its failures. It speaks about how many ministers are disillusioned and actually very lost souls themselves. Judgment Day is coming and the only one who can truly judge is Jesus. The author quotes many verses of the Bible so that the reader understands what “the world” is in terms of the Bible. Basically, the end of the world means the end of unnatural sex (described in this book as oral and anal sex).
The third part of the book speaks of Law and again uses Bible verses to help the reader understand the meaning of this word as it is used in the Book. It also speaks about several of the Ten Commandments and digs deeper into their meaning.
A Law of Eden considers very heavy subject matter. It took me a while to finish because each chapter was very thought provoking. Many of the ideas in the book could be considered controversial, yet they make great topics of discussion for a more mature Bible group. Recommended for those who love studying and interpreting the Bible.

Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!
You may have viewed my old website. This one is named the same but updated with much more information. There are five articles listed under articles that should be of interest to you if you have not noticed. Where is Hell, Holiness, The book of Jude and The Sin in Eden. My book gives much more information on the set of commandments not yet placed within our present day Christianity.
I don’t typically comment on posts, but as a long time reader I thought I’d drop in and wish you all the best during these troubling times.
From all of us at Royal CBD, I hope you stay well with the
COVID19 pandemic progressing at an alarming rate.
Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.
Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
(and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)
I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but
the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.
In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s
still in the works.
Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
Thank you for your support and compliments. I don’t know what you mean by “theme”. Readers Magnet built my site. You may want to ask them. This is my new and more complicated website and I have not mastered the ability to respond to the comments yet. Still have much to learn. Yes, I am taking care, staying in and hope you do also. This virus it changing so much.
Thanks with regard to providing these sort of great posting.
You are welcome. I hope my posts are helpful not only for you but for all humankind.
Just read your book (well, skimmed through most of it). You seem to start with the premise of ‘oral sex was the original sin’ then find verses that fit around that.
I haven’t read the whole book carefully (so apologies if these are already discussed in the book and I have missed), but there are a couple of things that stood out to me, which maybe you can clarify:
– Both Genesis and Revelations talk about a ‘tree of life’:
‘And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:’ (Genesis 3:22, KJV)
‘Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.’ (Revelations 22:14, KJV)
If the ‘original sin’ was, as you claim, nothing to do with any fruit tree, but rather ‘oral/anal sex’, what do you propose that this ‘tree of life’ is?
– You claim that adultery is a ‘lesser sin’ than ‘oral/anal sex’ so adulterers will still be part of the ‘chosen’, while fornicators (which you claim to be people ‘practicing oral/anal sex’, although none of the definitions I have seen for fornication/fornicator/porneia support this) won’t, yet Galatians 5:19-24 clearly says that neither adulterers nor fornicators will inherit the kingdom of God:
‘Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.’ (Galatians 5:19-24, KJV)
How do you expect people to believe your book when it’s clearly in contradiction with the Bible itself? I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, but, on first read, your book seems like it’s just going through a lot of trouble writing a book just so you won’t have to give your husband a BJ.
Before one can understand the Bible one must realize much of the Bible cannot be taken literally. “Tree” is one portion of scripture that cannot be taken literally. God is truth and Satan is lies. In the Garden the tree of life represents truth, good, and God while the tree of evil represents lies, evil and Satan. This is true throughout the Bible. God made vaginal intercourse and Satan made oral and anal sex. Adam and Eve chose evil and Satan. They ate of the tree of good and evil.
Another example showing that “tree” does not mean a literal tree such as apple, orange or fir tree is in the book of Jude. Here those given to fornication are said to be trees: “Sodom and Gomorrah giving themselves over to fornication” Jude 7. And in verse 12, they are “Trees without fruit” and said to be “Plucked up by the roots,” And “twice dead”. When any plant is plucked up by the roots growth is no longer possible. This is speaking of spiritual growth.
Adultery is a lesser sin. David’s sin of adultery did not place him in Sodom and Gomorrah. David was once dead while those in Sodom and Gomorrah are twice dead as stated in Jude. However, all who sin must repent. And David did repent.
At the end of this age there will be only a few who are not like Sodom and Gomorrah as stated in Isaiah 1:9, “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom and ye should have been like Gomorrah.” If David and Adam and Eve were on earth in the end times David would stand with the remnant while Adam and Eve would stand in Sodom and Gomorrah. These are the only two places for humans to stand in the end times.
Where would you like to stand, with the remnant or in Sodom and Gomorrah? All humans will repent. There will be deliverance for all those in Sodom and Gomorrah. in the last days. Jesus is promised to come in the last days.
Please read my book without having your mind set against what is said. Have an open mind and do your own reasoning with the truth you read. Many scriptures have a spiritual meaning. It is obvious the world needs more truth than what we are hearing today. Do you want a better tomorrow? I do.
Hello, this is a nicely explained article. Your piece was very informative. I had never heard the issue presented in that light. Thanks for your hard work.
