Spitting Image

Jesus, A Love Story Chapter 2 The Image

Chapter 2 The Image

God now proceeds to fashion an image of Himself
or a creation which feelings he can feel
which words he can understand
which can reason out the way He can.
Male or female?
He cannot give birth
He can create.
He needs to feel the love between mother and child.
Creating a mother would result to giving this mother
the power to create, or that of a father.
He must therefore create a father, or a male.
And from this male he will create, not give birth,
a female mother.
And so, gathering clay, he spits on it and breathes on
it the life of a father,
the spitting image of Himself,
only the spitting image of Himself
sans the power to create.
From this image comes a rib
which He now fashions to be a mother.
Created now are people
whom we name as Adam and Eve and,
as he fashioned, look exactly like His angels
and being so he expects them to worship and
obey Him just like His angels do.
Adam and Eve inhabit the blue planet but under His
Providential Protection
exactly in that locality known as Paradise.
He laid down the first rule, one of obedience to his rule,
the first of which is not to touch the Tree of Life,
or that Tree which gives birth.
The second rule is to worship Him and to love Him
without compulsion, them now having given free choice.
But one of his angels named Lucifer,
himself being granted free will,
has now become jealous of the new creations
getting more attention from Him.
Lucifer enticed Adam and Eve to exercise their own free will
and savor the Tree of Life.
God was furious,
and He removed His Providential Protection from them
and thereafter they had to do work to sustain their lives.
This event is what we call the Fall From Grace
and is where the love story of Jesus actually begins.
