One of life’s tragedies is that people have got the story of Adam & Eve all back to front and millions and millions of people actually believe that the original sin was sex but this couldn’t be further from the truth and when you look at it this way then you begin to see that most people haven’t even read the story of Adam & Eve! If people would read it then surely they would see that Adam & Eve were both created naked and then later on after they had eaten the forbidden fruit they then realised that they were naked, before eating the forbidden fruit it wasn’t even an issue, they were ok with their bodies and their sexuality and there really wasn’t any problem with them being naked and don’t forget that there was no such thing as clothes back then.
So who told them that they were naked and who told them that this was shameful, so much so that they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons to hide their nakedness? Well, it turns out that it wasn’t the Lord God that made them feel ashamed of their nakedness because “…they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?”
So clearly, God wasn’t the one who had a problem with their nakedness, it was somebody else who had a problem with this and that someone is commonly referred to as being the serpent. We find out who the serpent is in the book of Revelation when it refers to the devil as being that old serpent which is the devil and Satan, Satan here means the rebellious one and so it was the rebellious one, Satan, the devil, who was teaching Adam & Eve evil things and one of the evil things he taught them when they ate the forbidden fruit was to cover up their beautiful nakedness and to cover up their sexuality. So from the very beginning God had created two people who both had a loving relationship which they would also express to each other through loving intimate sex. So what was the devil’s angle here? One of the devil’s schemes here was to confiscate sex and to take the love out of sex and from then onwards you could say, and particularly these days, the world testifies through the media and Hollywood etc. to unloving sex and we have a younger generation growing up that rarely ever through the media and the film industry witnesses loving and intimate and natural sex so you do wonder with the present generation growing up, just what is going to hold their marriages together?
Loving intimate sex is pure and natural and this was the big issue here, the devil wanted to confiscate sex because he knew it was something really wonderful, he knew he could exploit it and use it, he knew also that all he had to do was take the love out of it and take God out of it and to add to this he also knew that people would rather serve him for it than God and so clearly, it is the devil that hates loving intimate love making and sex and so he uglifies it and does everything he can to take God out of it because he also knows that there’s a lot of power wrapped up with sex, men in particular will do anything to get sex and with the advertising industry he can sell anything to anyone through sex. He also teaches women to use sex as a powerful weapon against men! So people will even sell their soul to the devil to get sex so when you look at it all like this then you can see how the devil twisted the whole story around, he’s the real enemy of sex, not God, God is very much for loving and intimate and natural sex and this is how it was in the very beginning until the devil confiscated it and turned it all into his playground and not God’s. God of course is all for adventurous sex, natural intimate, loving, pure, heartfelt sex, spirit-felt sex. Godly sex is far better than the earthly flesh gratifying selfish self-serving sex!
