God's First Word to Man...

Hi, rg825--

Do you people ever read your Bibles? No….Really?!

You say: “The first words God spoke to man was “to be fruitful and multiply.””

However, the first words the “Lord God” supposedly spoke to man are actually found in Genesis 2:16-17 not, in Genesis 1:28, as you suggest. There, Adam – still alone – is given permission to eat of every tree in the garden except for “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” along with its threat of consequent death.

The next words in Genesis 2:18 read: “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” BTW, for you Biblical purists, the word for “help” in Genesis 2:18 “עֵזֶר,” pronounced “‘ê·zer,” is a masculine noun….  

In fact, the only thing in the Biblical creation narratives where it is noted that something God created was “not good” was man’s solitude.

Most importantly, the Creator doesn’t say “It is not good that the pen!s should be alone, I will make it a vag!na meet for it.” However, while it seems to be – and indeed is – a ludicrous thought, this is the essential argument of the opponents of civil marriage equality.  

If God intended anything, it is relationship, intimacy, comfort and support between spouses, not complementary bio-plumbing!
