"It is believed the devil was a snake and poisoned the apple with sin.". is unsourced. WP does not talk about it. is this an established and notable view or what someone vaguely remembers from sunday school? –Doldrums(talk) 06:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (and occasionally translated as the Tree of Conscience) was the tree in the middle of the Garden of Eden (2:9) from which God directly forbade Adam (and by extension Eve) to eat (2:17). The other tree in the middle of the garden was the Tree of Life. Genesis 2:16 states that God allowed them to eat of the fruit of any other tree in the garden, which would include the Tree of Life. When Eve, and then Adam, ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge (3:6), after being tempted by a serpent (3:1–5), they became aware of their nakedness (3:7), and were banished from the garden and forced to survive through agriculture "by the sweat of [their] face" (3:19-24).
"It is believed the devil was a snake and poisoned the apple with sin.", which I wrote, needs to be re-written. I will re-write it right now so don't worry. BTW, it is the official Catholic belief. —FellowWikiNewsie 17:32, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

also, the first line of the article, "limbo, which, according to the Roman Catholic Church, is a permanent status of the unbaptized who die in infancy" (emphasis mine) is at variance with "The Limbo of Children is a theological speculation that never been defined as official Church dogma" (w:Abortion), i think. –Doldrums(talk) 19:16, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
The article reads good. I don't really think we need to add all this info as its been past 24 hours. —FellowWikiNewsie 19:58, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
