I always find it amazing that those who profess not to believe in God will be the first ones to blame Him when bad things happen.  They will curse Him and shake their fists toward Heaven and say that this disaster proves there is no God and if there is, He is a fiend.  They justify their rebellion by blaming God for all that is evil in the world.

Such are the fools and the scoffers in the liberal media concerning Haiti.  One said that God was a murderer.  Others sneer at the ridiculous premise that there is a Devil and he plays a part in world events.  Does any of this make sense to you?

It does to me; give me a minute.  If you are a Believer, I am going to feed you some spiritual meat.  If you are a skeptic, open your heart to the truth.

When God created the Earth, He created it for man and it was intended to be a place where God could visit and have fellowship with his creation.  The Garden of Eden was a perfect paradise, the likes we can not even imagine.  Adam and Eve would have been glorious and beautiful creatures.  God would have made them very smart, perhaps even witty with a great sense of humor.  After all, if I was creating a companion those are the attributes I would give to my creation.  Wouldn't you?

God came to visit Adam in the Garden of Eden and walked with him during the cool of the day.  Yet, the Bible describes God as an all consuming fire that no man could stand to be near..  When He spoke to the children of Israel at Mt. Sinai, His voice was so thunderous they begged Moses to ask Him to never speak to them again.  When Moses asked to see God's face, God only allowed him to see His back because no man could see God's face and live.  So, what made Adam different?

Psalm 8 tells us, I believe this is written from an angel's perspective just after the creation: 
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour

Crowned him with glory.... the glory of the Lord crowned Adam, yet because he was sinless he was not consumed.  If you do a Concordance Search on the Glory of the Lord you will find that it is a fearsome sight.  It is always accompanied by fear and trembling.  When the glory of the Lord filled the temple no one could enter.  The fire pillar that led the children of Isreal through the desert was the glory of God. During the Transfiguration, the Disciples saw the true glory of Jesus and they fell to the ground in fear and trembling.  Yet, this is the stuff that covered Adam.  This is what allowed Adam to walk with the Lord and not be consumed.

(The Heavens Declare the Glory of the Lord)

Enter the Deceiver; the Hater of all that is good and pure and wholesome.
