What If Adam Had Just Said "I'm Sorry Lord"


Adam and Eve ran among the trees and they hid

When they heard God walking through the garden

Because the moment Adam ate of that fruit

He knew all along what they both had did

Their eyes were opened to the fact

That he and Eve were naked now, and

The first thing this great nobility thought to do –

To the Almighty God – was to disavow

He said; “God, it was this woman that you gave to me –

She gave me the fruit, and of it, I did eat”

The Lord asked Eve – “How could you do such a thing?”

She said to the Lord - “Lord the snake tricked me!”

I wonder if Adam had just manned-up and said to the Lord

“I’m sorry Lord, It was my fault and I take full responsibility”

Whether or not Adam’s line of decent would not have been

In all probability fraught with such hostility!

I believe if Adam had simply said

“I’m sorry Lord, and I repent”

Instead of breeching God’s trust with fraudulent intent

That mankind would have much more use of its brain

Than just that infamous (10%) ten percent!

An intriguing piece; I find myself agreeing with Elton in that Adam was perfect in his creation; therefore, he would have been able to use 100% of his brain. In my opinion, I believe that mankind today only uses 10%, which is the resulting affect of sin on Man. As interesting as it would be to guess what would have happened if Adam had interacted with God after she sinned, it's still a moot point - for such a thought exercise would serve only as a wedge between the ongoing battle of the sexes. So despite his intelligence, he (like so many of us) lacked real experience dealing with women. --Joe Breunig author/poet, Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory

Interesting idea. In Christian theology, Adam was perfect. A perfect individual never makes a mistake and if excused would offend quickly in some other way. His act was deliberate, probably because Eve was more important to him than even Divine disfavor. Consider this possibility: What if Adam had reported Eve rather than joining her in disobedience? He had plenty of ribs and should have been able to spare a bit for a new, possibilty more satisfactory mate. I've heard that even today if a surgeon has to remove a rib and leaves its covering periosteum, it may regenerate Anyway, liked your story. Elton Camp

Good to see you back, Princess! And in your absence you have not lost a bit for you continue to amaze and inspire. I never thought of that like this but I am glad that you wrote this for I now can look at that account very differently. Thanks or the mind expansion and it's good to see you again!

Draenoch, I appreciate it very much that you took the time to read and comment on this piece. I haven't read Phillip Pullman's work yet, but I assure you I will. Again, thank you for the positive comment.
