Riddle # 1 - WHO AM I

  1. Challenge #1 - "Who Am I?"
    The following riddle was written by a woman in California, USA, over 100 years ago in the late 1800's. The answer is one word, five letters long, and appears only four times in its various forms in the Authorized King James Bible. Have fun and don't search the answer. The fun is trying to figure it out.

    God made Adam out of dust,
    But thought it best to make me first:
    So I was made before the man,
    According to God's holy plan.
    My whole body God made complete,
    Without arms or hands or feet.
    My ways and acts did God control,
    But in my body He placed no soul.
    A living being I became,
    And Adam gave to me a name.
    Then from his presence I withdrew,
    For this man Adam I never knew.
    All my Maker's laws I do obey,
    And from these laws I never stray.
    Thousands of me go in fear,
    But seldom on the earth appear.
    Later, for a purpose God did see,
    He placed a living soul in me.
    But that soul of mine God had to claim,
    And from me He took it back again.
    And when this soul from me had fled,
    I was the same as when first made;
    Without arms, legs, feet, or soul,
    I travel on from pole to pole.

    My labors are from day to night,
    And to men I once furnished light.
    Thousands of people both young and old,
    Did by my death bright lights behold.
    No right or wrong can I conceive;
    The Bible and its teachings I can't believe.
    The fear of death doesn't trouble me;
    Pure happiness I will never see.
    And up in Heaven I can never go,
    Nor in the grave or Hell below.
    So get your Bible and read with care;
    You'll find my name recorded there.
  2. Excellent... gonna have to think about this one. :D
