This discussion of Genesis 2:18 looks at the first thing in God’s creation that is not good. We see the first foundational truth about the human experience, what God did about Adam being alone, and seven truths from Genesis 2:18 about loneliness.
Warning: This episode of the One Verse Podcast is rated PG-13.
It has content which might be inappropriate for children. How inappropriate? Well, just look at the title of this episode to see. And no … I am not going into graphic detail. I just use the word a few times. But if there are kids around, and you have no interest in explaining to them what that word means, you may want to listen to this podcast later.
However, I bet you might be interested in hearing what I have to say about it from Genesis 1, so if the kids are out of listening range, start listening!
If you get to know people as part of developing your theology, these people will change your theology more than your theology will change people. And that’s a good thing. Add people to your theology. You will never regret it (and your theology will be better too).
We have very little control of anything in life. This brings great fear. So we try to control the fear by letting go of control. But this is simply another vain attempt to control. Just as we cannot control life, we cannot control control.
The only way out is to recognize that control is an illusion. We have no control. Life is a ride, and God is the builder of this ride, and Jesus is riding it with us, so we can just enjoy all the ups and downs of life.
I was able to visit the Refuge in Denver recently. This is a group of people who help each other through the pain and messiness of life. People are starving for community, and it is not often found in the traditional church setting. If we love those around us, we will be able to help them (and be helped) through the messiness of life.
