Yes, I know, I took a bit of liberty with my post title. However, (pause for effect), there is some logical reasoning behind my apparent madness.
Bear with me if you will. I was going to use the word “bare” but I thought that might be pressing it.
I ran across this following post by Steven Cole that deals with our conscience, shame, guilt, blame, circumstances and God’s gracious reconconcilation, as recorded in Genesis 3:7-15 NASB. The dialogue recorded between God and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden illustrates very accurately how we humans normally react to when we sense that something we have done is wrong.
If you have a few minutes, take the time to read Steven’s post, an awful lot of our human nature is recorded in there, as well as God’s plan for our redemption. Can’t help thinking that there is a lot of self examination material in that short selection of Scripture.
God’s grace, peace and blessings to you all.
