When things go wrong why not blame God! After all, Adam did when he was confronted by God about the fruit from the forbidden tree.
“The woman You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree,and I ate it.”
In other words – if You had not given the woman to be with me, I would not have eaten of the fruit! How feeble an excuse was that? At least Eve’s answer was more accurate,”The serpent deceived me and I ate.” God had warned them of the consequences!
At this point in the journey we know that because of their disobedience they forfeited paradise. The equality the woman shared in Eden was lost, as was something in the relationship with Adam. Who knows, Adam may have felt resentment towards Eve all of his life, unless of course, he had a revelation from God that he had a choice in Eden- he could have stopped Eve or even refused to take a bite of the forbidden fruit.
Most of us, some time in our lives, have blamed circumstances on someone else, or made excuses for temptations we found hard to resist. We now live in such a liberal society that anything goes. The framework of God’s moral code, His values, integrity have disintegrated over the years, and this reflects in the people who are in positions of power, authority, leadership as well as those we rub shoulders with on a daily basis, i.e. – even ourselves!
It doesn’t take an Einstein to figure out why Our World is crumbling. We have taken God out of the equation. The very purpose we were created for, to have a relationship with Him, to involve Him in everything we do; instead we have rejected Him. But there has always been a remnant that have stayed faithful to God – and there is a remnant now who lift God’s name on high and are faithful to His Word- and that gives me hope!
