Discussion for Genesis 3

    Vs 15 seed is child. I will put controversy between your seed/child Satan and the woman's seed/child. Satan beguiled, wholly seduced Eve and he was that old serpent the devil which is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.2 trees that were not fruit trees in the garden. There was the creator of all things which was the tree of Life and Satan which was the other. Adam-Eve had Able. Satan-Cain.

    CORRECTION; Gen.3:20 "mother of all living". I said "mother of all the earth". Sorry!
  • Lu2677
    Word, I understand what God says about creation in chapter 1. I don't understand what you are saying about it. On this page you say "Satan was the tree of good and evil" So you are saying the fruit that Eve ate, the fruit of the tree that God warned her not to EAT, was plucked from Satan's body??? Christ is from the blood line of Adam and Eve because she is "the mother of all the earth"

    Lu2677 keep track of the subject,object and listen to what's being said in chapter one you will realize that God covered the earth with children and verse 26 makes it clear. God tells us to look around and observe and I just have to look at the Chinese and the Japanese and see that the 6th day man walked outside the garden.Those in the garden is where the blood line of Christ would come.
  • Lu2677
    To all that think God created people outside the garden.All things are possible with God,not denying it.If that was his plan why would he tell people to go forth and multiply?Why did he make provisions for husband and wife to procreate?People were living for several hundred years then, opportunity to have many children.Does he say he created others in the manner he formed Adam and Evein his word.

    Outside of the garden were people the 6th day people. Cain found 1 outside. Parents I guess you call them Gentiles or heathens. The tree of good an evil was Satan.I think Ezekiel 31 talks about Satan as the tree but Satan was there as the tree and his name was serpent Rev.12 gives some of his names. If you read the Bible In prayer God will show you the answer to your questions. Christ tree of Life
