Seed, Flesh and Skin

The Fruit of Righteousness

“In this shedding of immaturity, in obedience to the Covenant, Man is to outdo both tree and serpent.”

When you come into the land, and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count their fruit as uncircumcised. Three years it shall be as uncircumcised to you. It shall not be eaten. But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, a praise to the Lord. And in the fifth year you may eat its fruit, that it may yield to you its increase: I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 19:23-25 NKJV)

For many skeptics, a strange command like this exposes an invented, self-contradicting and capricious god. In reality, moderns are brute beasts when it comes to the true nature of Creation. It is sacrificial.
