In Eve's Defense
by Anna Von Reitz
Today I actually had someone tell me that "Adam's Sin" was that he didn't control his wife.
I about fell off my chair.
Let's get this straight, folks.
Adam's sin was that he disobeyed God and ate the "fruit" same as Eve, and then he turned around and compounded this sin by not manning up and trying to blame and scapegoat his wife for something that he did on his own two flat feet.
Eve was deceived by the half-truths of Satan--- the most beautiful and wiliest of all the angels, an adversary that Jesus wrestled for a full forty days, sold her a Bill of Goods. She was overcome by a most terrible Adversary.
But Adam? He was overcome by his wife?
How about Adam was overcome by Adam, by his own feckless ego and lust for power and lack of commitment and trust and gratitude to God? And then he didn't even have the decency, good sense, and courage to confess that he'd done it under his own power. No, he had to turn around and blame someone else for it.
That's Adam for you.
He and his sons---generally speaking---- still haven't confessed and repented either one of these sins, not his sin against God and not his sin against Eve, either.
Adam's sons are still sitting on their pity potties pointing fingers and spouting blame. It is in fact one of their hallmark characteristics and you can see it and its impact on the world every single day:
Political leaders who point fingers at the other side of the aisle. Heads of state who point at other heads of state. Banks who point at borrowers as if they aren't offering to lend. Fathers who point at the mothers of their own children as if they didn't have a thing to do with the situation. Men who point at anyone who isn't just like them. Whites who point at blacks and blacks who point at whites. Patriots who point at other patriots. I could go on all night....it is always "Eve's fault", or "George's fault"---- anyone and everybody else's fault, never Adam's fault.
Even worse, Adam's sons are still estranged from God, still not repenting their lack of faith and bad behavior and willfulness and ingratitude and greed. Far from it. They still want to prance around and set themselves up as kings instead of God, and if they can't dominate an entire country, they at least want to dominate the household they share with Eve's daughters.
Failure to be truthful and honest and brave, failure to admit mistakes, failure to give God his due, and do the jobs that God gave Adam, failure to obey simple instructions like "don't kill", "don't steal" and "don't lie"---and then on top of it, failure to take responsibility for all these failures----- these are the sins of Adam.
Eve just accepted her punishment without blaming anyone else. Her daughters still do. I will leave it to the rest of you to figure out which --- Adam or Eve --- acted more honorably and responsibly then and now.
