Who can pray 3. creation is shattered

Posted by craig b on February 6, 2008

Yet perhaps the relationship between God and His creation is not as perfect as we thought, for we read of Gods creation adding to Gods word, twisting Gods word, and in doing so losing sight of the clear truth of Gods word regarding life and death. It would seem that not only is the serpent guilty of manipulating Gods word, so is Adam. For it had to be him who told Eve they were not allowed to even touch the tree, yet alone eat from it? In the fullness of this conversation, the truth of Gods warning was forgotten and they ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And for the first time in history creation had felt shame.

1.the painful feeling arising from the consciousness of something dishonourable, improper, ridiculous, etc., done by oneself or another: She was overcome with shame. 4

This very shame caused fear to move into the emotions, replacing intimacy and trust. Imperfection had taken hold, intimacy and trust had been destroyed; not only between Creator and created, it had also been shattered between creation itself. For we see creation trying to hide from God; filled with a fear that they had not known before. Blame taking the place of accountability, Adam now blaming both God and Eve for their problem, declaring…“That woman you placed here” (Gen 3:12.) Eve in turn found fault with the serpent; saying, “It was he who had deceived her.”

As God declares the payment for sin, all of creation began to groan under the weight of it. (Rom 8:20-21) Beginning with the serpent, God declares enmity between it and the woman. The woman would begin to suffer more pain in childbirth, reflecting the groans of creation, though promising one day that her child would crush once and for all the serpents head, and it would strike his heel. Adam’s punishment was to work the ground, combating against weeds and thistles and they were placed outside Gods Garden in case they took upon themselves to eat of the tree of life.
