Yes, but that's a little ambiguous. It wasn't enough for them to face their feelings alone. They had to face them together.
Moses? wrote:And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
The 'Moses' attribution is tongue-in-cheek. The citation is from Genesis 3:6.
