God begins with only one rule: "Do not partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil!" However, when Eve is asked about the rule she adds:
And neither shall you touch it!"
By confessing her discovery and being allowed the admonition, the power to determine what will be has been shared.
The power to create is God's power, and cannot be treated lightly or selfishly, nor be despised or loathed. It is only granted if we trust and rely upon Him.
