LONG ROAD OUT OF EDEN

GENESIS-  BACK IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, GOD TOLD ADAM AND EVE NOT TO EAT FROM THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDE OF GOOD AND EVIL OR THEY WOULD DIE. THE BOOGIE MAN TOLD EVE THAT SHE WOULD NOT DIE IF SHE ATE THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT. (knowledge). EVE BELIEVED THE BOOGIE MAN AND ATE THE FRUIT AND THEN ADAM ATE THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT. THEY DID NOT DIE SO THE BOOGIE MAN DID NOT LIE TO EVE.  THEY DID NOT DIE … THAT DAY. GEN. 2:15  PERHAPS IN THAT DAY THEY BECAME MORTAL AND DIED EVENTUALLY? (and they did.)                                                        SO, IF I HAVE THIS RIGHT, THE GOOD GUY IN THE SCRIPT WANTS TO KEEP MANKIND IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN  NAKED AND NOT KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL. aka-right from wrong.  (this sounds like it may even be illegal !)

        THE VILLAIN IN THIS STORY IS THE GUY THAT WANTS MANKIND TO HAVE KNOWLEDGE AND KNOW ENOUGH TO PUT ON SOME CLOTHES WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER.    THIS IS STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A GOOD COP-BAD COP SCRIPT! GOD OBVIOUSLY KNOWS HOW THIS STORY UNFOLDS BEFORE IT EVEN STARTS. YET,..HE ALLOWS IT TO DEVELOP.  BUT WHY ?   IS FREE WILL PART OF THE PLAN OR A DESIGN FLAW?   IS DISOBEDIENCE AND INDEPENDENCE A PREREQUISITE FOR GETTING OUT OF THE “GARDEN ?”    MAYBE THIS GARDEN WAS NOT THAT GREAT! IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO LIVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN RIGHT NOW AND LIVE FOREVER RUNNING AROUND NAKED NOT KNOWING RIGHT FROM WRONG AND WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE WOULD YOU GO ? (what? no clothes shopping?)   IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN SEAN CONNERY IN THE OLD MOVIE ” ZARDOZ ,   IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN IT… GET IT AND WATCH IT! IT IS FUNNY AND A BRAIN TEASE.  I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS….

                                       GENESIS 3:16                                              partial quote, ” your desire will be for your husband. He shall RULE over you !                                                                                                                                                                            Now this may sound a little  blasphemous and it may be blasphemous but I believe it is true.                                        THAT QUOTE FROM GENESIS 3:16 sounds like a MAN wrote it and NOT GOD!  I think somebody plugged in that language  sometime way, way back. The guy was either single or unhappily married and probably miserable.                                                                                                   I think the ” RULE OVER YOUR WIFE” MENTALITY IS DEAD AND/OR DYING. IT SOUNDS MORE LIKE SLAVERY TALK AND NOT MARRIAGE. I WILL BE MARRIED FOR 39 YEARS THIS YEAR. THIS IDEA OF ” RULING OVER MY WIFE”, MENTALITY SOUNDS LIKE ABUSE. WHEN WE GOT MARRIED, WE MADE A DEAL.  I WOULD MAKE ALL THE BIG DECISIONS AND MY WIFE WOULD MAKE ALL THE LITTLE DECISIONS.  AFTER ALL THIS TIME, WE HAVE NEVER HAD ONE BIG DECISION !!! LUCKY ME!
