[Podcast Episode 73] Why is so hard to just admit we did something wrong? What has changed since Genesis 3 that can help us be honest with ourselves and God? We explore this next aspect of our sin nature and then move on to more fun things like a new kids’ podcast app that includes our show, Leela Kids Podcasts App, and Creation Moments, another show they list. Then it’s a tasty romp through the jungle to discover how we get chocolate!Gloomy Forest, photo credit: JovanCormac

Genesis 3:12-13

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Blaming others for what we chose to do goes back. Waaay back. But that doesn’t make it right. Job knew this:

Job 31:33 “If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:”

Jesus told us why we are tempted to hide from the truth:

John 3:19-20 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

But Jesus also gives us the solution to this awful feeling of wanting to hide from what we really did.

I John 1:8-9 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

And why can God be holy and just while forgiving us?

Romans 5:8-9 NLT But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation.

What a relief to finally escape the guilt and blame we inherited from our first parents!

Leela Kids Podcast App

If you want an app just for your kids or to introduce friends to the power of audio for their families, Leela Kids Podcast app would be a good place to start. I haven’t tried how it would work for directly controlling which podcasts my kids can access, but I have looked around what they offer and am glad it’s possible to find shows based on genre and age group.

I’m especially grateful that they recognize our desire to offer quality Christian shows for our children to grow in their walk with Jesus. And two of the programs they include are Young Earth Creation! Mine, and…

Creation Moments

I’ve included this show in my collection of creation podcasts since first publishing that list because they’ve been producing radio spots for years, and can see why it’s a good fit for kids. The topics are always tightly focused and usually interesting to people of any age!

The show I talked about in the podcast is the one called Covered in Pitch which reminded me of the…

New Coloring Pages

added to my printables collection. It was a pretty sorry selection for over a year, but now has several fun and lovely additions. Be sure to check them out and print up a few to help your little ones grasp the real size of our ancestors’ survival craft.

BTW Richard Gunther is in New Zealand, not Australia and he’s done a great dove and olive leaf drawing!

If you color this in and mail it to Ken Ham, I think it would make his day!


Besides the grocery store, our main source of info was YouTube. Enjoy!

We loved watching this young man travel to southern Mexico to see how Cacao trees grow and all the processes required to give us such a yummy treat:

There’s one more talking about how he collected the peanuts and prepared the caramel, but that was off topic!
