Original Sin

Who gets the credit

For good or evil actions

Does God get credit for the good

And another get credit for evil

 

All that God created was good

But it was not good

That man should be alone

So he made from the man

A woman

Who was credited for

The original sin

 

She who knew no sin

But her action

Credited to her as sin

 

But that action

Gave rise to a savior

Even if it cost her eternal life

 

So what appears to be

Original sin

In the light that it gave rise

To her savior

Jesus Christ

Turns out to be

The saving grace

 

That action

Brought into existence

Everything we know

 

Tree of Knowledge

The Shadow of Death by William Holman Hunt 1873

Of all the trees

In the garden

You may eat freely

But if you eat from

The tree of knowledge

You will die

 

It is not free

You will pay for that

With your life

 

And so she did

Being the mother of all life

They all died

So her savior could live

 

No sin

No savior

No story

 

Savior

If the sinner

Gives rise to a savior

Who is the sinner

 

If one breaks the law

To fulfill the law

Who is the transgressor

 

These are the two

Who overcame death

And these two are one

The sinner and her savior

 

I Timothy 2:14-15

“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.  Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”

 

Labor of Love

What about the fruit

 

If we eat it too early

Before it is ripe

It will make us sick

 

If we wait too long

The fruit will rot

And fall off the tree

 

We reap when the fruit is ripe

And the tree is full

Then it will nourish us and sustain us

 

It takes me right back to the garden

In the beginning

 

The fruit never fell

From the tree of knowledge

She picked the fruit

And ate it

And at that instant

She gave rise to a savior

                       

The act of love

Brings to fruition

The object of love

 

We are the fruit

Of the labor of love

 

Spirit

The fall of Adam and Eve

Gave rise to a savior

Jesus Christ

 

The fall of a savior

Gives rise to the Spirit

 

Adam and Eve

Are within Christ

And Christ

Within the Spirit

And the Spirit

Within us

 

The rise of the Spirit

The rise of consciousness

 

St. John 6:39

“And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.”

How much time had passed

From God telling Adam

Not to eat from the tree of knowledge

To the moment when Eve did

Was it a day, a month, a year?

 

How do we measure time

When no time has passed

Time cannot stand between

Me and my savior

No sin, no salvation

No time in between

The sinner and the savior

 

Rev 10:6-7

“And sware by him that lives for ever and ever…that there should be time no longer…the mystery of God should be finished…”
