Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
31/12/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Oh, Brethren, what is the result of pride? Oh, see what humility can do? What was the need for all these sufferings? For, if from the beginning Man had humbled himself, obeyed God, and kept the commandment he would not have fallen.

Again, after his fall, God gave him an occasion to repent and to receive mercy but he kept his stiff-neck held high. He came to him and said Adam, Where are you? instead of saying What glory you have left and what dishonor you have arrived at? After that, He asked him Why did you sin? Why did you transgress the commandment? By asking these questions, He wanted to give him the opportunity to say, Forgive me. However, he did not ask for forgiveness. There was no humility, there was no repentance, but indeed the opposite.

He answered, The woman whom You gave to be with me (Gen 3:9-12), he did not say, the woman deceived me, but The woman whom You gave to me, as if he wanted to say: This catastrophe has come upon me because of You. So it is, brethren, since Man is not accustomed to blame himself. He does not hesitate to consider even God as the cause of evil.

Then God came to the woman and said to her, Why did you not keep the commandment? as if He wanted to say, At least you, say forgive me, so as to humble your soul and to receive mercy. Again, there was no request for forgiveness. She also answered, The serpent deceived me, (Gen 3:13) as if she wanted to say, If the serpent sinned, where is my mistake?

Why did you act in this way, you pitiable ones? Make a bow of repentance, recognize your fault, be sorry for your nakedness. Neither one of them could blame himself, neither of them had the least bit of humility.
