Garden of Eden

In the recorded allegory of Adam and Eve, the story is about Eve being tempted to believe in a power other than God.  Rather than being grateful for everything in the garden, her focus was on the one tree,  she could not have.  Don’t we even have to face that temptation today?  When our blessings are so great, we want to think about lack of some kind.

Philippians 4:8 states “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”  Isn’t that clear?  We always have a choice on whether we choose light or darkness.

    1. I believe we are made in the image and likeness of God as stated in the first chapter of Genesis. I believe our true identity is spiritual, not human. I think that the second chapter of Genesis is talking about limited humanity, not God’s image and likeness.
