PSU Lunch Carts Wed Feb 15, 2012 131 by Parker KnightIt isn’t very long into reading the historical books of the Bible that we find people trying to go around God’s plans:

  • Eve decides she knows better than God, and chooses to eat the fruit.
  • Adam decides he knows better than God, and chooses to eat the fruit his wife offers him.
  • Cain decides he knows better than God, and offers fruit instead of a lamb.
  • Man in general decides it knows better than God and lives to self, ends up underwater.
  • Man decides not to spread over the Earth—see how well that worked out for them.
  • Sarai decides she knows better than God and offers Hagar to her husband Abram because she hasn’t been able to have children yet.

That last one is interesting, as today we’re still doing much the same thing, only instead of offering handmaids or male servants to the spouse that can’t bear a child, we’re taking donations from males and females and creating children around God’s wishes (as it is He that gives the blessing of children).  Just like the items listed above, this activity also is showing negative consequences.
