I don’t think the Triune counsel of the GODHEAD was talking about the recreational challenges of Adam in the garden when it stated
“It is NOT good for Man to be alone” -T.C.G
I BELIEVE as long as the unfiltered presence of God Almighty was in that garden, Adam was literally INCAPABLE of ‘feeling‘ loneliness!
Yet I feel like we as the “well wishing church” have warped that initial statement to mean
“It is NOT good for MAN to be LONELY”
…and used it to BASH all ‘overage‘ singles!
NOT COOL Y’ALL! 😦
If you are going to MISUSE scripture,
to ABUSE me, then the LEAST you can do is use the RIGHT club!
Give me a ‘noble’ death!
SEE, I believe in that single statement in Genesis 2:18, God wasn’t just musing aloud, but LITERALLY giving a ‘DIAGNOSTIC SUMMARY’ of the fate of the ENTIRE species, by saying
“it is NOT good for Man to lack the CAPACITY to REPRODUCE/RECREATE and fulfill my original and ULTIMATE purpose for his initial creation by BEING alone, “-T.C.G
so to remedy this handicap, The divine HE took the ‘RIB’ out of Adam to create the SOLUTION to the apparent SOLITUDE, NOT of the MAN, but of the potential MANY.
I believe the ‘RIB’ wasn’t the biological component of Man’s skeletal system as we scientifically interpret it today, but rather it was an intimate part of man, symbolic of Man’s most crippling inadequacy.
The inability to RECREATE.
The incapacity to literally spawn a species.
So he put him to sleep, took everything the MAN lacked OUT of the MAN, and used it as a MOLD to ‘fashion‘ for him an ‘animate component’ to make HIM fully complete through HER,
So that as the ‘UNITED FRONT’ called THEM, THEY (as a WHOLE) could MEET the requirements of Gods ultimate mandate of FRUITFULNESS,
and SUBJUGATION outlined in Genesis 1:28.
…God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it!”
He LITERALLY made him a ‘help‘, MEET ( perfectly fitted) for the propagation and fulfillment of HIS (GOD’S) divine mandate.
The woman was created OUT of need, to FILL a need ( that’s why women are such fixers methinks).
The woman was created OUT of solitude, to REMEDY solitude.
The woman was created OUT of potential, to FULFILL potential.
With that said, if a woman is SUCH a strategic creation,
created to fulfill such a STRATEGIC and SPECIFIC purpose. I PERSONALLY believe I can afford to take a decade, or 3 to ‘watch‘ and pray to make sure God brings me the RIGHT one!
Now, If the woman was MINE on the other hand,
MINE in every sense of the word.
MINE NOT as an entrustment,
but MINE as a ‘disposable‘ means and mere accessory to the selfish end of fulfilling MY pleasure and for the execution of and realization of MY personal ambitions and plans then hey, I could rely on my wisdom and my volition and criterion to pick one,
ANY one, the closest one.
The prettier the better! and quite literally, LIVE IT UP!
But if she was DIVINELY ENGINEERED with GREAT INTENTIONALITY,
to PARTNER with me to strategically fulfill a concise purpose,
DIVINELY authored and authorized before the foundation of the world by God ALMIGHTY, then hey,
YOU drew the blueprints God,
YOU know which woman I need to partner with to fulfill them,
so YOU choose.
And like you did with my prototypical ancestor, Adam
YOU bring her to me!
Thank you, and Amen!
