I didn’t spell President Duert’s name like that, I don’t seem to be able to change it. I am wondering what else the bloody rewrite on this newly owned platform will come up with. Am I being Sanctioned in the verbal department I ask myself...
Anyway, back to the plot. If The Most High God made Man in His own image, and then found the Man was miserable and bereft of a mate, God fixed the situation.
If God has free will, which evidently He does, because we have free will, then He made Adam and Eve with free will.
So how does one excercise ‘Free Will’? The obvious is to do something you are told us a bad idea. Will lead to a sticky and ignomious end.... possibly.
So is original sin what the Church Have Eve down for, which is eating the tasty apple, and then suggesting Adam ought to have a bite of it? And then they decide to make babies?
Nope the original sin was lying. Eve said the serpent tricked her into eating the apple, which was truthful. Let’s face it she was probably bored, Adam was happy to watch her doing all the work. They hadn’t invented washing yet. There is endless joy in washing things, but they didn’t have any clothes to wash.
So Eve got clothes to wash. Well initially fig-leaves to wipe.
Adam got a nasty dose of denial, and a furtive way of blaming Eve for everything. Actually I don’t think it was Lying first, it was blaming. Eve inferred it was the Serpents fault she ate the apple. She didn’t neccassarily blame the serpent, however it was implied. Yup, I am going for a revision. Blaming for the first sin, when with free will they could have rejected the idea of eating the apple altogether.
I am still working on this bit. I did say I haven’t got past chapter three in Genesis! Reading it and understanding it is a bit of a challenge.
Its surprising what coughing up a bit of apple along with a shed load of other nasty habits can do to your brain cells. Anyway my man has discovered He likes washing too, and flower arranging. There is hope for them all... He is also an exception Head Cook, and brilliant with the shopping. Me I clean the house and generally scull about doing very little things which mean a lot to us both.
Meanwhile the World Cup is on, so as I am sure God likes Football just as much as my Husband does, expect some very interesting results. I get the drift that God is rooting for underdogs in the Football department. It’s not my thing really. Too many flashing lights. I get to do some cooking.
Anyway a further update this morning. I think God might be fed up with me pestering about this subject!
I was a bit stunned realy. He said did you ever consider I might have seen the eating of the apple by Eve as Suicide, and then Murder by explaining to Adam she had eaten the apple and suggesting He eat it? Adam decided to eat the apple because He couldn’t bear to be without Eve. So I asked God if this ended up being a suicide pact?
I had never considered suicide myself, so it hadn’t occurred to me. I can imagine how devastating this situation was to God. He loved them both so much. I am going to start back at the beginning and try reading it all again. Suicide is devastating to God. So is Murder. Also Character assassination.
He made us perfect, beautiful, and to have communion with Him. I can’t imagine how much we all hurt God.
I will I’ll cut down on my smoking. It isn’t smoking that kills you it’s the complications arising from the smoke. I don’t realy inhale a lot. Anyway there... I challenged God, so He has to hold up the mirror and make me examine myself too.
