That's only because many don't know how to trust in themselves

That whole story of the Fruit of Knowledge is Religious propaganda to make people believe that seeking Knowledge is a sin. And that is precisely WHY we are in the mess we are in today—Ignorance is Bliss.

If people actually lived what Jesus taught, unconditional LOVE, which doesn't mean "A lot of LOVE" but LOVING regardless of the Conditions in front of you, living THAT on a daily basis tunes one into the power of God and makes one ONE with God. That kind of person would break a branch off the tree and stab that damn snake because they would see right through it. The tale of Adam and Eve was also sexist propaganda to diminish the power of the Feminine so that the Masculine can take over. Again, yet another example of why we are where we are today.

It isn't about someone ELSE telling you to Trust yourself, It's about the person finding within themselves a trust in themselves where God really exists. And that's exactly what Jesus tried to teach us, like most of the major Religious esoteric teachings, which are hidden from mankind and we are left to argue about the exoteric traditions instead.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
