But the farmer in Jesus’ parable (Mat 13:1-23) uses the broadcast method. And predictably, many of these seeds do not produce. Many who hear the gospel never seem to “get it.” The message is stolen before it ever takes root.
At the end of the story, Jesus says “they who have ears, let them hear.” In other words, he wants us to learn something and take some action steps.
Seeds I’ve planted include carrot, cucumber, and of course, zucchini. To respond to this parable adequately, we must view it from two different angles.
In each case, I’ve planted seeds in neat rows, expecting nearly all of them to sprout and yield fruit. The first is to look at the story as if we are the seed.

There are many false and destructive teachings about Genesis 3 and the Garden of Eden, loosely called, "Serpent Seed".

The Poaceae are the most economically important plant family, providing staple foods from domesticated cereal crops such as maize, wheat, rice, barley, and millet as well as forage, building materials (bamboo, thatch, straw) and fuel (ethanol).The Punishment upon Eve (womenhood) was pain in childbirth.This seems directly linked to sexual intercouse and pregnancy."And Eve, tempted by the serpent ate of the fruit from the tree of knowledge and her eyes were opened." "And after that, Eve gave the fruit unto Adam and he too ate of the fruit from the tree of knowledge." There is zero mention of Adam and Eve having sex (i.e."knowing") and children before they ate from the Tree of Knowledge (of good and evil) despite the fact they lived in a paradise and both were naked.
