What If Adam Bit Into The Apple First Instead Of Eve
As I look up at the Heavens above. I silently ask my Heavenly creator. What if Adam bit into the apple first instead of Eve? Would life be equivalent for Man and Woman?
Since the beginning of time, BC.
Man has always been at the helm of his ship, the King of his castle, the head of his household.
Whereas, the woman. The second in command, the neck of her husband. And she shall submit her desires unto her husband.
If we could just reinvent the scenario, whereas, Adam bit into the apple first and Eve was the second culprit. How would that have affected the creation of time and the concerns following it? The woman receives penalties that impact her in two primary roles: she shall experience pangs during childbearing, pain during childbirth, and while she shall desire her husband, he will rule over her. The man's penalty results in God cursing the ground from which he came, and the man then receives a death oracle.
It appears to me, the man received far less wrath from God than us women.
Women have painful childbirths, Aunt Flow every mouth, we are treated at times, like a second class citizen within our own countries, and no matter what, we still must bear the responsibility of raising and educating our children with, or without the presence of a man.
The man, and I must say with the sweetest intention. What was his wrath againÖhum?
Several concubines as King Solomon had in biblical times, in some countries here today, it is still acceptable for men to marry more than one wife. A wife must submit until his will. And since some Chemist and Scientist invested their time and energy creating that little blue wonder pill, a sexual appetite that registers off the scale, and some, not all males could still produce an offspring, well beyond the age of a female.
I know a lot of male readers will say in the back of their mind, we wasnít the one who bit the apple. Yes, I know that, but you did take the second bite.
Once the forbidden fruit of life was sliced into. It gave the man and the woman new eyes. Eyes to know right from wrong. To discern truth from dishonest, and to accept the fate of their dire action(s).
If the apple was not bitten by either sexes, would we know less hate, less violence; would separatism of races exist?
Would man attempt to make peace, and strive less for war.
Remember wars comes in so many fashions. You have race wars, religious wars, wars of domain, wars of gender equality, and wars to maintain peace (cease fire).
As the Bible progressed from the sole actions of Eveís betrayal. It has manifested an unjust civilization, which has extended from generations upon generations.
Would Cain had really slewed his brother, out of envy, because God found favor in the hands of Abelís production of land, his flock? For I am not my brotherís keeper, rings so loud and true in the inner cities.
In this day and time, a family is planning a funeral for a love one gunned down from the hands of a bullet, or the other family, is visiting a loved one behind cell bars who stands to be the culprit.
It has, or it never will be a win-win for all parties involved.
The parallel of life is very short.
If Adam or Eve, did not walk around the Garden of Eden, after Eve bit into that apple like Gods, knowing right from wrong. Would it have altered the lifestyle of society as we know it here today?
Man and yes women these days are lovers of themselves.
You have men strutting around, without any care in throes of arrogance
You now see women in society, marketing the bodies to the highest bidder. Garments to entice the loins of men. In addition, age is not a form of boundaries. If you watch social media, and the videos these so called parents choose to upload of their children, it is immoral and indecent to any viewer.
All I am saying is. I wish things were so different under Godís Heaven. Yes, even after the apple was bitten by Eve.
I have heard, and have witnessed so much unjust occurrences, which happens minute-by-minute, within a twenty-four hour day span.
Incidences that makes the mind wonder. If this world, our Heavenly father created, was to be perfect and Man made in Godís image, then how did we end up here. Wars, Pestilent, Incest, Murder, Hunger, and a warped political system.
I guess if you give credit to the Romansí political system during the Biblical days when Jesus walked the land, I guess you could say I answered my own question.
Times of today, gives reemerging ideology in favor of times of the old, somehow it is entwined into times of today.
Are we so blinded to know what is right or wrong anymore. Our empathic toward one another will befall on deaf ears and non-seeing eyes.
If you have read this piece. Ask yourself what have you done to change the affirmation of the old, therefore, it will not leak into your future.
For me writing this narrative is therapeutic to oneís soul, mainly mine.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
Until our kindred souls collaborate on seeking the truth, stay alert and vigilant.
Love and Hugs,
