“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
TRUTH! EMET! AMEN! about the line of dividing between good and evil…
Sometimes I say to myself, “thanks a lot Adam and Eve”, and then me thinks, if I were there in Eve’s place I’d probably do the same thing because we all know overall that women are easily manipulated and deceived without wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and discernment. But, Adam should have been with her in my thinking, perhaps he would have told the serpent/snake/devil to take a hike!!! Or not?
The fig leaves didn’t do any good, they were only going to dry up and fade away, and our Savior eventually cursed a fig tree drying up the leaves because it didn’t produce fruit.
Mat 21:18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
Mat 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
Mat 21:20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
