We are told that God made man, upright, honest and righteous.‘ So what has happened to us?
Lets see if we can find out.
First we find that God, (who is sitting on the mountain top talking just like any Leader to Moses) telling him we have ‘corrupted‘ ourselves.
Corrupt, means ‘altered from the original.
The original creation was made VERY GOOD, and God was pleased with it. Now we are being told that we somehow have ‘corrupted’ things and things are no longer like the original. If so, how did we ‘corrupt’ ourselves and Gods very good creation?
Well, one of the ancient writers wrote, Man sought out many inventions. The word ‘invention’ means, ‘producing by the imagination.’ And did you know ‘imagination’ means,’forming mental images of things not really there.’
So was God saying it was mans imagination -mans mental images, that corrupted everything God had created?
Does that mean man too is a god. A creator…if he was able to undo the first creation and redo it to fit his mental images. Think about that.
Then there was ancient Jeremiah who must have understood also, for he told us that we are following our imaginations , our mental images ‘that we believe are real, because that is what our fathers believed after they corrupted themselves…and they passed down their corrupted beliefs to us.
Even ancient Paul tried to makes us understand that man did ‘corrupt‘ his self…when he told us to get rid of our imagination. To get rid of our ‘mental images’ that we are believing are real and present. But are NOT real and present.
Imagination is the beginning of mans idea of some god and his corrupted creation.
