“Then the man said ‘The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.’” Genesis 3:12
It all started with an apple. The downfall of man. The evils of woman. The apple was the beginning of it. Now, when things go wrong, Eve takes the wrap for it. She always gets the blame and all because she took a bite of that damn apple.
It all started with an apple. The sweet temptation of its juicy nectar was just so hard to resist. To know good and evil. To become God’s equal. How could that not be tempting?
All it took was five little words: “You will not surely die.” Right then and there, death of man began. And according to history, woman is to blame.
“To the woman He said: ‘I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.’” Genesis 3:16
And she brought children into this world through her pain. And her husband ruled over her. But she and her daughters were the true rulers of all. It all started with an apple, but after Eden, it continued with woman. The downfall of man. Man is the ruler, but his temptation is always a woman.
Woman is the apple. The knowledge of good and evil. The desire to become God’s equal. And she is so tempting. The sweet temptation of her juicy nectar is just so hard to resist. Men start wars over it. Just ask Helen.
The daughters of Eve know their power. Some remain good. Others turn bad. Men try to deny the power that women actually have.
“Money over women.” Silly men. They only want money to get women. And a woman can always lead a man off track—intentions may start off good, but she can turn it bad.
In reality, women are their own worst enemy. A man who is taken can be taken away by the temptation of another woman. An apple hating another apple.
Because it all started with an apple. The knowledge of good and evil. The desire to become God’s equal. The inability to resist temptation.
And a woman knows the power that she has. An invitation to enter her garden will make a grown man glad. And she can use it as a weapon. Ruin a happy home. Break a man down—drive him crazy. She can even start wars—again, ask Helen.
And it all started with an apple.
But in time, Eve became the tree. And we, her daughters, became the apples.
