by Brad ScottThis word is a description of someone who is solely interested in their own personal pleasure. This doctrine teaches that pleasure and personal delight are the highest good. Of course, there are a myriad of opinions as to what is delightful, pleasureable, and good. This is very interesting, considering that this word is taken from the Hebrew word 'eden (עדן). This word means to delight or satisfy. Pleasure and delight are common nature in mankind. YHVH designed our lives to be forever bathed in pleasure, had we done things His way. True delight was to be found in eating the tree of life and all it's fruit. Man rejected that and has been searching for true pleasure ever since.
