Perfect Imagination = Sinless Mind

In Imagination on May 9, 2012 at 4:13 am

You’ve probably been asked this baffling question, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, then does it make a sound?” Before you answer this, think about this one. “If a man speaks his mind in a forest and no woman is around to hear him, then is he still wrong?” i’m not going to answer it. But if we could ask the first couple on earth this question, they’d probably say “yes”.

Adam and Eve are such an interesting couple to think about.  Matter of fact if you had to paint them would you give them a bellybutton? This was a question of much debate back in the day. The church scrutinized Michelangelo for giving them a naval in his portraits on the Sistine Chapel. Hopefully, i’ve gotten your mind on track to think about Adam and Eve.

It was by thinking of the way Adam and Eve lived when i asked myself, “What were they thinking?” Their creative process and more specifically their imaginations changed after sin. But what were their imaginations like before sin? What is the imagination like in a sinless state of reality?

Adam and Eve are the only people, besides Jesus, to have had a perfect imagination. Perfect in the sense of sinless. Though, for Adam and Eve this window of “perfect imagination” was shut rather quickly. After they disobeyed God, their environment, as well as their bodies, and imaginations were instantly altered.
