Salamat kay Eva!


Genesis Chapter 3
3:1
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
3:2
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3:3
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
3:4
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
3:5
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
3:6
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
3:7
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
3:8
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
3:9
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
3:10
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
3:11
And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
3:12
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
3:13
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
3:14
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
3:16
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
3:17
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
3:18
Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
3:19
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
3:20
And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Sa storya nina Adan at Eva sa Bibliya Genesis 3:1 - 3:20 makikita nating ang babae ay likas na matalino at malakas ang loob. Hindi ako naniniwalang nagpalinlang si Eva sa isang ahas nang kainin niya ang ipinagbabawal na prutas ng Diyos sa kanila. Bagkus ay naniniwala akong si Eva ang nagbigay daan upang lubos nating maranasan ang totoong mabuhay. To "live" sabi nga nila, dahil sa ginawa niya isinumpa sila ng Diyos na magbabalik sa alikabok o mamamatay, sa pagkakaroon nila ng kamatayan, saka lamang nagkaroon ng kabuluhan ang kanilang buhay. Sapagkat ang buhay ay nagtatapos at nararapat lamang ng magtapos "Life is nothing without death". Dahil din sa pagiging pangahas ni Eva, nagkaroon sila ng kaalaman at karunungan at natuto silang manimbang ng tama at mali, ibig sabihin gumana rin ang kanilang mga konsensya. Iyun ang simula ng kanilang pagiging tao... dahil dun masasabi nating naging mas angat sila sa anumang uri ng nilalang ng Diyos.

Isinumpa rin sila ng Diyos na magbabanat ng buto para mabuhay, para sa akin hindi naging masama ang sumpang ito ng Diyos sa kanila, aba'y syempre anong saysay ng ating mga lakas, talento o galing kung hindi natin gagamitin? Mas maaatim mo bang mabuhay magpakailanman nang hindi man lang napapakinabangan ang mga bagay na tinataglay natin? Hindi ko, maatim ang mabuhay ng walang hangan na nakatanga lamang o namumulot na lamang ng mga pagkaing babagsak sa harapan ko para isubo.

Isang bagay lang ang hindi ko matangap sa istoryang ito ang sinabi ng Diyos na "3:16
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children;" Lupit naman nun walang justice akala ko ba mapagpatawad ang Diyos?! Hindi naman labag sa loob ko ang sinabi niyang in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children dahil para sa akin isang malaking karangalan ang magkaroon ng mga supling, at ang mga anak ay hindi magiging dahilan ng kalungkutan ng isang ina, kahit kaninong ina mo itanong yan, dito siguro nagkamali ang Diyos sa sinabi niyang ito.

Ito pa ang isang hindi ko matangap na sumpa ng Diyos sa mga kababaehan "and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." Hmmmm.... alam ng Diyos na hindi natupad ang sumpa niyang ito, dahil nagkaroon tayo ng freewill, pero siguro dahil nga sa sinabi ng Diyos, ito ang ipinatupad ng moralistang lipunan at simbahang katoliko sa lahat ng mga babaeng nagsisipag-asawa. Pero alam ko maraming kababaehan na rin ang kumawala sa sumpang ito. At isa pa hinding hindi tatangapin ng sarili ko ang sinabi ng Diyos na "and he shall rule over thee" siguro noon Oo! pero alam ko tapos na ang panahon na "Patriarchy".

Panawagan sa mga kababaehan, simulan na ang rebolusyon! Baguhin natin ang kasaysayan, kumawala tayo sa sumpa! Palayain natin ang ating mga sarili! Dahil ang totoo sa pamamagitan ni Eva tayo ang nagpalaya sa sangkatauhan. Salamat kay Eva!
