Last night I talked with a woman pastor.
She has a distinct point of view on the Bible. Precisely, more than a single point. There were so many things that I found interesting in her talking, too many to write here now, so I will quote one thing.
If we read the Bible, we women will soon be beaten by the sin of Eve, eating the forbidden Fruit and let his husband eat one too. We might think it heavy as if this woman have owed all responsibility that mankind has been shuttered out of the Paradise.
Yet she told us, “If God had really hated Eve to eat the Fruit, He could have stopped her. God makes the history, in which people sometimes obey Him, sometimes not. How about thinking that God had sent Adam and Eve to the new World from the Garden? ”
That’s wonderful. Yet I still think that Eve had made a mistake. She was too easily talked out by the snake. She should have asked him, “So why don’t you eat it by yourself?”
