A Tale of a Word of Truth and a Word of Faith…

In the book of Genesis, we read about how Eve was beguiled by the serpent and then presented a choice to Adam that was pleasing to the eye which then defiled Adam. Adam in turn defiled Eve by blaming her for his wrong decision.

There is a parallel narrative that took place this past fall, interestingly enough. In the book of Ecclesiastes, we read how what’s happened before will happen again–There is nothing new under the sun.

A seed of the serpent was sown that apparently beguiled a word of faith. A word of truth was presented something that appeared to be pleasing by a word of faith. A word of truth decided to investigate this further. However, instead of acting accordingly, a word of truth acted out of character. A word of faith then decided to masquerade as a word of truth but was operating as a word of faith. This defiled a word of truth which caused strife in which a word of truth then blamed on a word of faith. The parallel to the Garden of Eden story is uncanny.

In the end, Common Sense will prevail and a word of truth and a word of faith will be put in their proper place…
