With the body of Christ, we died for the law of the letter, that is, for the law of Moses, the Old Testament, which kills and condemns, and it is impossible to be saved by it today. It is written: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Romans 10:4). If one does not understand this – does not understand the end of the law – they can never be righteous, the law will never allow it!
Why did God plant two trees, carrying two opposite outcomes for man? This predicament reveals that God endowed man with free will, free and personal desires, feelings, thoughts and reasoning of mind, so that man could freely accept and reject, to obey and to disobey.
