In life, people sometimes say strange things, and many times they are forced to face up to those statements. If religion do it, we get the answer; “God works in mysterious ways”. Some statements in religion are however so strange that a question or two just begs for an answer. In the book of Genesis, the first book of the Christian religion in chapter 2 and 3 we find statements that really need to be answered. Allow me to quote; chapter 2 verse 16 and 17. “You may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, 17 except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good, and what is bad. You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day.” In chapter 3 verse 1 to 3 the woman (Eve) explained to the snake what God said regarding this tree and its fruit, in verse 4 the snake replied; “That’s not true; you will not die. 5 God said that, because he knows that when you eat it you will be like God, and know what is good and what is bad.” In the book of John in the New Testament, in Chapter 8 verse 44 we read that Jesus said; “you are the children of your father, the Devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires. From the very beginning he was a murderer and has never been on the side of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies.” In John chapter 10 verse 8 Jesus said: “All others who came before me are thieves and robbers”. In the book of Matthew chapter 23 verse 35 we read that Zachariah was murdered between the temple and the altar, we also read that Abel was a prophet! In chapter 13 of the book Zachariah in the Old Testament we

read that the Lord Almighty himself gave the order to kill the prophet so that He, the Lord can scatter the sheep. In John chapter 10 verse 12 you will read that the wolf only came to snatch the sheep and scatter them. From the above I have two questions: 1: Who lied in the book of Genesis? 2: Who is Jesus referring to in Matthew and John? Strange questions or valid ones! What do you think?
