1 Corinthians 2:14 the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him;
In the beginning, when the Creator God put “man” in the Garden of Eden, everything was beautiful and lovely. There were no problems to contend with and this probably went on for hundreds of thousands of years and maybe even billions of years since man was designed to be eternal. But, one day, he decided that he could improve on what God had created and that was when things changed. I wonder, was that when he became a physical being instead of a spiritual being in his thinking? He became aware of himself. Herein lies the problem, self-awareness.
Genesis 3:10 “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
There was a particular cartoon in the Sunday paper once, long ago called ‘Pogo’ and it was a one liner, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” We have been listening to the wrong voice. We need to get back to listening to the voice of this wonderful Creator God.
