In our previous posts we have been saying that we need to review the meanings that people assign to what is written in the Bible, because the Bible may mean different things to different people; now, since we have been talking about curses also in these religious writings, it would be better for us to say what we have in mind to do, in order to overcome this obstacle. First of all I am going to talk to my friends in the hope that they would help me to find the right way, or at least see what they think about these Bible curses that we are going to talk about.
As you might already know even the Bible is full of curses, in fact we find the first Bible curse at the very beginning of the Bible when God curses the serpent, Genesis3, 14-15, and I quote;
*Be accursed beyond all cattle, all wild beasts.
You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust every day of your life.
I will make you enemies of each other:
You and the woman,
Your offspring and her offspring
It will crush your head
And you will strike the hill.
Then to the woman God said, Genesis 3-16
I will multiply your pain in child bearing,
You shall give birth to your children in pain.
Your yearning shall be for your husband,
Yet he will lord it over you.
Then to Adam Genesis 3-17
Accursed be the soil because of you.
With suffering shall you get your food from it every day of your life
It shall yield you brambles and thistles, and you shall eat wild plants.
With sweat on your brow, shall you eat your bread.
Until you return to the soil, as you were taken from it.
For dust you are; and to dust you shall return.
Yahweh (God) was right to be very angry with them; So He cursed them, and this is the very first curse in the Bible, and it came from God.
(But before we continue to talk about the Bible curses I want to say this; I feel and my friends also feel that perhaps this curse has been exaggerated, in order to strike fear to any Bible reader.)
Now, as you can see for yourself curses are in the Bible from the very beginning and last Bible curse is at the very end, which sounds like forbidding anybody to change anything said in the Bible.
This seems to cause a real problem for the believers, so, it would be just to ask; what can be done to avoid or minimize the curses, one may ask?
Well at this moment I and my friends do not know yet, but we are working on it and we shall see what my friends might suggest. So, we will be discussing curses presently and looking at any possible way to neutralize them. Perhaps a prayer to God-Most-High, master and life giver of the universe maybe the answer, so, let me try to write one just for this purpose, or perhaps find one that I have already half written and adjust it to fit my purpose. Then I will ask my friends what they think about my prayer and everything else.
One my prayers:
Almighty and merciful Father we pray you to help us, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and so we pray you thus:
In the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, to you we turn God-Most-High master and life giver of the whole universe, we are praying you with all our hearts our souls and our minds; we are praying you Almighty Father hoping that in your mercy first of all you would forgive us all our life sins, and that you would make us spiritually clean of any impurities that may affect our soul, and thus we would become worthy in your eyes to pray to you and ask for help, while we serve as your humble servants. We believe that there might be people who would curse us, just because we do not agree with them, Father shied us from these curses and return those curses on whoever started those curses for no good reasons.
Father, hear our prayers and shield us from those curses! Amen.
