The good news is that God. Yahweh is in the process of creating man.
This can be seen in the correct interpretation of the supposed “Fall”.
I will be bold and say that I believe that man was more after the “fall” than he was before it and by more I mean more like God.
I can understand how this may shock some people because the traditional interpretation has been that man by being disobedient to God threw a spanner in His works.
The biblical account, even given the most literal reading of the text does not support this view.
In fact there are declarations God makes in Genesis that emphatically negate the interpretation designated “The Fall”.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” Genesis 1:26
So here we have God’s purpose in the creation of man. Man is to be the very image of God, the likeness of Him who is invisibly omnipotent.
The common interpretation that states that God’s work with man was finished with Adam, that it was from this finished and good state that man fell makes a fool of God!
It has him running around inanely after us constantly frustrated by our propensity to fuck shit up.
It makes God a failure… a sinner.
He set out to create a perfect creation but alas the very workmanship of His hands, by unaccountable means has risen up against Him. It has escaped His influence and now it runs amok whilst God helplessly stumbles after it trying desperately to save a few people from the punishment He Himself ordained.
Oh what a stupid God the mainstream God is! When brought into the clear light of day we see it for the flaccid impotent wreck of a concept that it is. It truly calls good bad and bitter sweet!
Anyway onwards with the exegesis:
After the events of “The Fall” God makes a declaration. Now this declaration is strange and makes no sense given the traditional view of “The Fall”.
“Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil” Genesis 3:22
Here we have Yahweh expressing emphasis concerning the fact that man had become more like God! This was no fall but an ascent!
What a foreshadowing of the law! The command “do not eat” wasn’t meant to be kept and neither is the law; both fulfil their function when we fail to keep them.
This is the bind that orthodoxy has concerning verses like this.
Here we have a statement from God Himself saying that the humans after eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil were more like God than they were before.
That is to say they were more complete, more finished than if they had remained obedient.
To be continued….
