ALL GOD’S CHILDREN

Found this in Garry’s office. Who knows from whom it originated or when? Yet it explains so much…..

If your children don’t listen to you, take comfort that God’s omnipotence did not extend to His kids. After creating Heaven and Earth, He created Adam and Even and the first thing he said to them was “Don’t!” Which was, in my opinion, a serious mistake.

“Don’t what?” Adam asked.

“Don’t eat the forbidden fruit,” God replied.

“Forbidden fruit? We’ve got forbidden fruit?” Adam answered. “Hey, Eve. We have forbidden fruit!

“No way.”

“Yes way.”

Don’t eat that fruit!” God said — again. By now, he knew he’s probably started off on the wrong foot.

“Why not?” asked Adam.

“Because I am your Father and I said so!” replied God, wondering why he hadn’t stopped after making elephants. Just a few minutes later, God saw his kids having and apple break. He was angry.

“Didn’t I just tell you not to eat that fruit?” God asked.

“Uh huh,” said Adam.

“Then why did you eat it?”

“I dunno,” Eve answered.

“SHE started it,” pointed out Adam.

“Did not,” said Eve.

“Did too!” said Adam.

“Did too!”

“DID NOT!” said Eve.

Having had it with both of them, God’s punishment was a very long time out. “No more Garden for you” God declared.

After which he pronounced the parents’ curse, that Adam and Eve shall have their own children who would behave just like they did. Thus the pattern was established and has never been broken.

    • I thought it was funny. You know in Israel, in the north right by the Lebanon border, there’s a place where the Jordan River begins. Water just bursts out of the ground everywhere. A remarkable place full of wildlife and birds — and it is officially the Garden of Eden. There is something insanely funny about being someplace and seeing a sign in English and Hebrew that says “Garden of Eden” with an arrow and a road.
