I started reading through a list of Bible verses I got from the web that deal with Satan. While reading from the Book of Genesis about the devil's attempt to decieve Eve I noticed the words used:
"Did God really say?" the devil asks (Genesis 3:1)
This reminded me of one of my own faults. Sometimes I try to find loopholes in God's teaching. I say to myself, "Maybe that is not what God means" and go searching through the Bible, or on websites or in books, for some alternate interpretation my worldly self prefers.
Of course what I need to do is ask God directly, "Is this what you mean? Please explain it to me?"
Does anyone else recognise their own mindset in the devil's words to Eve?
