    Infidelity Of Jane Doe

    • 1636 Words
    • 7 Pages

    fall victim to them, but adultery is in no way justifiable. The forbidden fruit that both Adam and Eve ate without reparations in their mind is similar to infidelity. To expand, Adam and Eve fell victim to temptation after witnessing the fruit in all its glory and so Adam and Eve ate the fruit of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. Despite the warnings and commands by God to not eat the Forbidden Fruit, they still did because they simply couldn't resist. As the story goes, they ultimately opposed the words of God and indulged in immoral pleasure (“Adam and Eve”, n.d.). In the Book of Enoch in 1 Enoch 31:4, the tree of knowledge was described under the lines of “It was like a species of the Tamarind tree, bearing fruit which resembled grapes extremely fine; and its fragrance extended to a considerable distance. I exclaimed, How beautiful is this tree, and how delightful is its appearance!” (“The Book of Enoch the Prophet: Chapters XXI-XL,” n.d.). Evidently, they were allured by a superficial insatiable desire and instead of realizing that they shouldn't indulge in such sinful activities, they took a bite of the fruit. They knew the consequences, but the sweetness and temporary relief were worth it. The serpent may have tempted them, but it cannot be blamed entirely for its cunning deception because they were the ones that performed such deceit. The same can be said about cheating. The parties involved have no justifications for their horrendous actions. They might have been…

    intellectually superior to Eve. Adam often focuses on Eve’s outer self, emphasizing her physicality rather than her intellect. For instance, when archangel Raphael comes to the garden of Eden to reason with Adam, Adam acknowledges Eve as a physical temptation; he says, Transported touch; here passion first I felt, Commotion strange, in all enjoyments else Superior and unmoved, here only weak Against the charm of beauty’s powerful glance. (8. 530-33) Adam describes his…

    “It’s beyond a religion it’s a collective consciousness we share” He said. I rolled my eyes. “What if I told you there was no such thing as duality and everything existed as one?” “That wouldn’t make much sense because there are equal and opposing reactions for every object and then what about night and day, hot and cold?” “They are one, but the basic human mind interprets the polarity and separate oneness with dichotomy. The either or categorization, ignoring all that strays from the rigid…

    Noah The Watchers

    • 3 Pages

    The biggest difference is the presence and role of The Watchers. In the actual Bible, they are not mentioned until later on. However, in the Book of Enoch, it is explained that at first these fallen angels were entranced by the daughters of men, and so they had sex with the mortal women and gave way for the birth of the Nephilim. The Nephilim were giants that roamed the earth, savage creatures who wrecked the land and brought harm to people. The Nephilites are mentioned offhand in the Genesis –…

    righteous people in the Pearl of Great Price, as well as present day. I will also show the qualifications and blessings of true sacrifice, as well as Satan’s counterfeits for sacrifice, because rest assured, every gospel truth has a deceptive opposite. First off, we need to establish the ultimate purpose of sacrifice in our lives and what it actually means. All of God’s actions are motivated by a desire to “bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39), and eternal…

    result I could never give a proper summary. However, my attitude on reading first started to change in middle school and once I got to high school I learned how to deeply analyze a book. Learning how to pick apart a novel gave me a whole new insight on the importance of novels and what type of knowledge those novels could give me. For example, I didn’t realize that stories had symbolism and held deeper meaning that could reveal truths about human nature. This opened my mind and gave me a new…

    Rodot Lizad: A Short Story

    It was a quiet, peaceful night. Five family members were happily sleeping. A little girl, around three or four, had a very strange dream about a robot lizard. It involved her dog, her brother and baby sister, and of course, a mechanical lizard. The next morning, as soon as the little girl got up, she wrote down what she remembered of the dream, and titled the printer-paper booklet 'Rodot Lizard '. This would be her first of many small, sloppy stories. If you look back at that story, it seems…

    great points of why it should and why it shouldn’t be legalized. I believe that it should be legalized and my paper will give you a few reasons why.

I used the search engine Google and at the libraries I used Destiny Library Book…
