THE TREE "IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN"

From the April 1927 issue of The Christian Science Journal


ALMOST everyone is familiar with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, and has heard of "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil" which was "in the midst of the garden," the fruit of which Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat lest they should die. But not until individual thought became sufficiently inspired, through consecration and self-abnegation, to receive the spiritual significance of this allegory did we have the true concept of its meaning.
