It's not that the tree of knowledge is bad - it's that it's bad for us - we're the problem. When we eat from the tree we take judgment into our own
hands and upon ourselves and in doing so 1. we attempt to deny God his rule over us (we attempt to be our own heads/judges/gods), which opens us up to
judgment and 2. as we do so (as we attempt to measure out right from wrong ourselves / as we attempt ethics / as we attempt to be like gods/judges) we
screw up badly because we just aren't capable of understanding the right and wrong we should do and not do (we aren't capable of perceiving the spirit
/ walking in the spirit well enough such that we could do it without error) and on top of that we're selfish. So 3. because we fall short while
simultaneously taking judging upon ourselves, we die.
To walk in the Spirit means to seek after and do the will of God (especially byway of receiving the spirit of the Son). It means to put away
codification (the letter of the law where it had become the reasoning of man / ethics) and see and do the will of the Word and of the Spirit.
I think what people didn't understand back then and even today is that the Word is and has always has been meant to lead you to or in the Spirit.
Think of it like this:
These words are the image of my conception of my will (where my will is to show you that my words are only mean to illustrate my will).
Jesus is the image (the body) of Father, Father is conception (the translator/the head) of the Spirit, the Spirit is the will of God.
Body is the image of the Soul and the Soul is the translator of the Spirit. We look at forms so as to be lead to the conception of their will, so as
to perceive their will.
