Genesis 3 and our modern life

I’m not the ‘holy-moly’ type of person but when it comes to bible, I do like reading my kids bible I bought year ago from Readers Digest. Out of all the stories in Bible, I totally can relate the part in Genesis 3 where Adam and Eve broken God’s Command not to eat the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil which resulted them to be banished from God’s garden.
No..no!! Don’t get me wrong here. I didn’t eat any forbidden fruit or anything. It’s that I remember 10 years ago, I was forbidden by dad to have a boyfriend while in college. I don’t know what came to me that time, but I defied every rules set by dad on what to do and what not to do. I met my boyfriend (My hubby lah!!!) and no matter how dad ordered me not to be with my boyfriend, I defied him in every way I can. Hmmmm…I do sound like I’m a bad daughter, huh?? But no worry, dad didn’t banish me from home but because of that our relationship was soured every time dad and I had a fight. But after I furthered my study to UPM, our relationship somehow get better and no more fight in between us. Of course dad still forbid me to have boyfriend that time but…hehee I still didn’t want to accept whatever reasons and his long list why I shouldn’t have a boyfriend while studying. Well, at least I didn’t make a wrong choice here as I still married my boyfriend who is my hubby now. Heheeeee…
What I’m trying to tell you guys is, we human are sometimes very weird. Hahahaha!! What a way to describe human being. How many of us actually broke rules that forbid us to do something that is obviously wrong? Just like Eve, she aware that the fruits from the Tree of Knowledge are forbidden by God. But still, she ate it anyway after being tempted by The Serpent. Take the traffics offender who beat a red traffic while driving. I’m sure they do know that beating a red traffic is wrong and could cost them their life. But how come they still did it and disregard the law stating this offence???? Funny huh?? There is still many other examples I can relate, but I’m sure you get what I mean here.
When I read my bible, whether it is good or bad, everything is happening in our modern life as well. You can Find out more about Bible Stories and even Find out more about Theatre Church when the CineMeetings & Events brings the first-ever Theatre Church Conference in Silver Spring, MD on October, 22nd and 23rd. I’m interested to Find out more about this conference, but since it’s very far from where I’m now, I don’t think I can attend and join this conference. But those who stayed somewhere in Silver Spring, Maryland can definitely attend this conference today and tomorrow. I’m sure there is a lot of things can be learnt from it. If CineMeetings & Events decided to do the same conference here in our place, I will be pleased to attend the conference together with my family. Post?slot_id=

T, I think it's human nature. I mean, we're descendants of adam and eve anyway. it's just our nature to break the rule *smile*. but i believe that we are ought to bear the consequences after that , right! for me, in your shoe... it's fated for u and ur hubby *hehehe*. it's a good thing kan? hohoho!!

Going against the rule, is normality. We always like to do the opposite, our rebellious side.

So, if I was your father, I'd say go date as much guys as you want, have boyfriends, screw around, get drunk, and be cheap. It might or might not work. :-)

yup kdg2 reverse psycho tu ble pakai... tapi kadang2 tia ble juga.. contoh dia mcm kasi takut budak2 yg di sana tmpt gelap ada hantu sedangkan actually kita tia mo diorang pi sana... sebab kita buat drg jadi penakut dan takut gelap tu nanti.. my doter tia pernah kena kasi takut gitu.. so she tidak takut gelap or hantu..
