An Imperfect World:pt 1

Nneka Okwuosa Written by Nneka Okwuosa · 2 min read >

I am more than a woman, sister, aunt, and soon will take on the most important role of all: “Mother.” I am human, and I seek the things that most ordinary people desire. A roof over my head, a good paying job, a duplex in the most desirable locations, a devoted husband, and lovely children all contribute to the illusion of a perfect life.

Does the perfect life truly exist? Is it possible to have this in an imperfect world. Who can answer this question?

Why is the world imperfect?

Who made the world imperfect?

When the world become imperfect?

What made the world imperfect?

Where did the world become imperfect?

And how did it become imperfect?

These questions seem easy to answer, right? Well, the truth is, are we asking the right questions.

One simple way is to bring Uncle Adam back to the garden of Eden where he can be brought for some interrogations along with aunty eve, Afterall it was through them that sin entered into the world. The bore the first murderer, defined us to hard labor and suffering.

Before we judge them incorrectly, lets identify the first Male and Female to be created by YHWH.

Who was Adam?

According to the book of Genesis, which tells the story of creation, He created both living and non-living things, with humankind being the last of his creatures.

Genesis 1:26(king James version) “And God said Come let us make man in our own image, after our likeness”. In verse 27 God created man in his own image, in the image of God created him; male and female he created them. Enough emphasis isn’t laid upon these two verses enough in the Christian community. Till the real understanding of these two texts are revealed the world will keep going in its unending cycles.

These two original prototypes were created and set on a part for dominion, each with their individual function, but with the same vision to serve Elohim. He created them to be supernatural beings clearly distinct from his Angels, beings with supernatural powers to play the same roles as divine beings, they would mostly likely evolve through the course of the journey with YHWH teaching and guiding them in the garden.

Adam was clearly created before Eve; he had begun his creator’s work as he had been thought, diligently performing his duties. 

According to sources, after naming all the creatures and other elements, he sought a wife among creation but was unable to find one, which is why Genesis 2:18 (KJV) tells us that God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” 

It was at this point, in my opinion, that our Imperfection was born; what if God had simply continued his work and left the woman out of the picture; we already know from the Bible that Adam was excellent at his job.

Nature and life would be forever changed for the better with the conception of the woman Eve. The knowledge of Good and Evil became a desire with the consequence of Doom and lost.
