The First Theology

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:4-5 (NLT)

I am back. Actually, I started work yesterday but I was not in the mood to write. I attended a course for the past 2 days. Right now, I am practicing the strategies thought there. Once I got the hang of it, I will begin with real money and make my first million dollars. For those who have prayed, thank you very much. I am very excited and I look forward for my prosperity even if the world has been shouting the word “recession” to our ears.

I think I have given you enough update about myself. In this article, I shall show you what theology is all about. I have mentioned about theology in my past articles, which has caused some of its worshippers to write in to protest. In their comments, you can see that they are actually proving me right. One of them posted a prayer that asks God to give him poverty and sickness. Another one even declared that he is not like God and he is not a creator.

In case you have not realize about this:
1. Each time you go to work you are creating wealth for your employer.
2. Each time you draw something on a piece of paper, you are creating a piece of art (to those who know how to appreciate it)
3. Each time you cook something in the kitchen, you are creating something delicious.

In short, we are all creators. The only way for us not to be creators is to do absolutely nothing. So, the more the worshippers of theology try to defend theology, the more evil and perversion comes out from them. They are basically proving me right. This is why I welcome theologians to comment in this blog.

Let us begin our lesson. The above verses are the record of the first theology being introduced to humanity. The Bible itself has recorded many situations of theologians committing their deeds. Let me give you a few of them:

1. When Moses sent out 12 spies to scout the Promised Land, 10 of them were theologians. You can identify them based on their negative words.

2. When Jesus began his ministries, his greatest enemies were the theologians.

3. Theologians had infiltrated the early church. They imposed the Law back to the church. This had prompted Paul to write the harshest book (Galatians) in the Bible.

Outside the Bible, we can read about what the Inquisitors and the Crusaders did when they implemented theology. The only reason why today’s theologians do not behave like the Inquisitors and the Crusaders is because they have no more power to do so.

The Bible tells us that theology is evil. We should stay away from it. You cannot worship God and theology at the same time. In this article, I shall attempt to explain the basic principles of theology in detail and I shall do so from the first record of it.

Let me start from the background. After God created Adam, he placed Adam in a prosperous garden. Adam had the freedom to do anything he pleases except for one.

15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.
16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden—
17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
Genesis 2:15-17(NLT)
After that God created Eve. Both Adam and Eve lived happily in prosperity. Then the theologian appeared. He is Satan. Satan took the appearance of a serpent, looked for Eve and initiated a conversation with her. Let us look at their conversation.

1 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied.
3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:1-5(NLT)

The theologian (serpent) began with a question on God’s words. This is the same with theologians today. Please note that the question is very negative.

“Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”

Why did he ask this question? Did he not know about it? Was he just trying to obtain information for his school project? The answer is no. He asked this question with the intention of creating a negative mindset on his prey, which in this case was Eve. Theology can only work in a negative mindset. You can read about the theologians’ comments in this blog. They are very negative. They can even pray for God to make them sick and poor. How low can they sink to?

This tells us that as long as we keep our thoughts positive, theology has no power over us. Theology draws its strength on a negative environment. This is why, its practitioners will always tell us how bad the situation is. They want us to dwell on the negative situation and become negative. Once you have become negative minded, you are easy prey. So, it is imperative for us to be positive at all times. We must guard our hearts.

Eve answered correctly at first but she made a mistake by adding to it.

2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied.
3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
Genesis 3:2-3(NLT)

Eve said no eating and no touching the fruit. God only said no eating. There was no prohibition against touching the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. Eve tried to be extra obedient by adding more rules. This was the opportunity the theologian was waiting for. He found a weak spot in Eve.

Before we move on to see how the theologian struck, let us find out why it is bad to be “extra obedient” by adding more to God’s rules. In my previous article, I wrote about lust. Jesus said that when a man looks at a woman with lust in his heart, he has committed adultery. Jesus had never said that men must never look at women. However, I am not surprise if there are theological crackpots that will say that men must never look at or show any interest to women at all. They are trying to be extra obedient.

In case some of you are wondering why is it wrong, God designed men and women to be attracted to each other. If you are a man who has no interest in women, you should seek medical help.

So, what will happen when you get extra obedient? You will see God in a negative light. You will have the impression that God is withholding good things from you. You think he is blocking your prosperity. As a result you will not trust him as you did before. Eve made this mistake. By adding an extra rule to God’s original requirement, she had created doubts in her faith in God. This is where the theologian struck.

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:4-5(NLT)

The theologian started with “You won’t die!” He presented God as a liar. This happens to be the main message of theology today. God is a liar. He has no intention to keep his promises to give you prosperity. All his promises of blessing you with health, wealth, success, long life and other good things in life, are not mean to be taken literally. This means God does not keep his promises.

(One theologian had even said that God’s “good will” for you could be in the form of making you poor and sick.)

In Verse 5, the theologian tempted Eve with the prospect of being like God. Today, this verse has been used by the theologians to discredit the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each time a Christian preacher preaches about the goodness of God in blessing us with prosperity, the theologians will link it to Genesis 3:5 as though God himself was the serpent who deceived Eve. This is a blasphemy, a common characteristic of theology.

Recently I even have a visitor who proudly said that he is not like God. Obviously he must be referring to the above verse. The lie that theology had propagated on Genesis 3:5 is the desire to be like God had caused Eve to sin. However, if you are to read in context, you will find that it is not so. Eve did not sin because she wanted to be like God. She sinned because she tried to be extra obedient by adding to God’s rules. The theologian took advantage of that.

My message here is, it is not wrong in wanting to be like God. As human beings, we were made in His image. When we became Christians, we were born again into a new species of God. We became more like God. God designed us with the desire to be more like him. If you are a Christian, you should have the desire to be more and more like God. A Christian who has no intention to be like God is like a man who has no interest in women. Both are abnormal.

Satan knew about this desire in Eve and used it as a bait to tempt her to sin. Let me tell you the truth about temptations. Temptations can only work by offering the victims what the victim desires. God has given Eve the desire to be like him. Satan created a temptation based on this desire to deceive Eve. Likewise, in other areas in our lives.

The devil will only tempt you based on the things you like. As for me, I like to have a lot of money. So, the devil will design a temptation with the line, “If you do certain things, you will have a lot of money.” if he has some basic intelligence. Of course, it will not work on me because I look to God as the source of my prosperity.

Satan sees your desires as the focus point for his temptations. All his temptations are based on the promises of fulfilling our desires. As long as you have a desire, you are a target of Satan’s temptations.

Does it mean we should not have any desires? The answer is no. God gave us desires. Without desires, we will be like mindless drones. All we need to remember is, we should look to God as the person who will fulfill our desires. Since God is the one who gave us our desires, he will be the one who will fulfill them. So, start trusting in him.

In conclusion, be like God.
