THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
hehehe....so i am back once again.lol....i know i was away for too long, 24 hours doesnt just seem enough for me these days....it is as if i am the only one in grad school in this whole world...hahaha..dont mind me. Anyways... so i was chilling with a couple of my friends yesterday and we were just jamming and talking about girls and their promiscuous ways then an issue came up that caused a very big argument.
My cousin Adex said women have always been like that right from time even from the days of Adam. He went further to say that the bible coded a lot of things and it takes really smart people to get it. He said the Forbidden fruit talked about in the book of Genesis was not meant the way it was written. According to the bible. The forbidden fruit was a real fruit and for some reasons Apple always comes to mind whenever you hear The forbidden fruit. Well we all know the story in Genesis chapter 3. for those who dont i will summarize.lol
There Eve was just playing around in the Garden as usual and Then Mr Devil came along. He came in form of a serpent. The Bible refered to the serpent as very crafty. meaning he also has a way with words. So he asked Eve. Hey Eve sweetie how come you eat from all the trees in this garden apart from just one. Eve was like ah!...God said we could eat from every other fruit in the garden apart from this one ooo...... because if we do, we go just die like that. The serpent then said "Na Lie, You no fit die. God knows if you eat from this fruit, you will be like him. Your eyes will be opened and you will be able to differentiate good from evil. Well at the end of the day Eve ate the fruit and took it to Adam and Adam too ate.
So this was where the argument started. My cousins interpretation to that chapter was that. The forbidden fruit really was Sex and what the devil meant by their eyes being opened and they being like God as... if they have sex, they can procreate and only God had the power to create and he wants that power to himself alone that was why he told them that if they Had sex, they would die.
I was angry and i pointed out a verse to him Genesis 3:6 "So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,  she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate."
I told him that Eve ate the fruit first and that if forbidden fruit meant sex, Eve wouldn't have had sex with herself or was it the Devil he had sex with?... Then i got the shocker of my life. He was like why am i acting Naive. He said do i think women started using their hands very recently? He said the serpent being very crafty must have told her to try her hands and see how good it felt before going to seduce Adam to stick in his John thomas in her pum pum.
Well I this caused a lot of heated argument but then i still think what he said was absolutely wrong. I totally disagree. So i decided to post it here to see what you people think. Its so wrong to give the Bible our own meaning. I am a strong believer and i dont like seeing people dilute the word of God. So lets hear what you think about this
