In the beginning was the inclination of evil.

The team of Qoheleth des femmes [Women] , Leve fanm Yo greets you and takes the opportunity to address the issue of evil. Our topic today is called:

In the beginning was the inclination to evil.

The first word that God addresses to humans is a word of production of fruit, of multiplication, of increase of domain, of conquest, according to Genesis 1.28

"Fruit, multiply, fill the earth, conquer it."

He entrusts man with the mission of procreating. He who does not bear fruit, who does not procreate, hinders the plans of the Master, and therefore commits a fault. The 2nd commandment that God gives to humans is the ability to eat whatever is in the garden. However, a limit has been placed on the tree which is placed in the center of the garden.

We are therefore in the legal field. God legislates while remaining meek and humble. He respects the freedom of humans. He does not address a speech to humans but a word. In Deuteronomy 30.15, God says:

"See, today I place before you life and good, death and evil".

And I advise you to choose the first alternative for your good and for the good of your descendants.

So what is the purpose of the law?

The purpose of the law is to curb those who tend to defeat the good governance of any society. God is the visionary who comes to regulate life in society in advance so that there is no fracture. In Genesis 2: 16-17 IHVH-Adonai Elohîms commands the glebous to say:

"From every tree in the garden you will eat, you will eat, but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you will not eat,

yes, from the day you eat it, you will die, you will die. "

Here it is clearly stated that the inclination to evil exists in the very DNA of man. He is able to cross borders, limits. We must not forget that man was created from dust and water. These two elements are both the source of life and sheol or death, according to Genesis 3:19.

"You return to the earth, from which you were taken; for you are dust, and you will return to the dust."

This decree was confirmed following the mistake made by our first parents. Fault giving rise to an opening to the world.

Humans are able to use their hands to produce fruits of all kinds as they acquire the knowledge, science, wisdom that they need for the management of mankind. They should enjoy, during their lifetime, the result of their production, "for there will be no activity, no plan, no science, no wisdom in the Cheol [tomb], towards which they are heading. », According to Qohéleth 9.10

And throughout the Bible the inclination to evil continues to exist. Cain kills his own brother because he couldn't control his emotions. After the Flood, Gd still had to establish guidelines to avoid murder by instituting courts. To the Israelites fresh out of slavery, Gd gives them a law of protection on Mount Sinai to avoid defiling the Promised Land with blood.

The team of Qoheleth des femmes [Women], Leve fanm Yo notes that this inclination to evil is much higher in men than in women who have an openness to both Gd and the world. Well done women!

Shalom and Shalom!
