Discussion for Genesis 2

  • Irene123
    Julie - man was not made in Gen. 1:26 this was God's preliminary 'idea' for creating man a 'blueprint' for man to be made. Man was actually created in Gen. 2:7.

    1 Timothy 2:14- Adam was not deceived. The woman was deceived in the transgression.
  • Irene123
    As to Eve, and Adam, not sinning and we all live in Eutopia - God KNEW before any of His creation what would happen. The way Adam 'n Eve were before the fruit tree incident - they knew only to live for God; they had NO choice. Their eyes hadn't been opened. God wanted man to love and obey from his own choice, not because he had no choice. The whole thing was God's plan.
  • Irene123
    Adam is a name; it's like all other names - it has a meaning; Irene means 'peace'. ALL Bible names have their meaning; look them up; Jehovah means Savior - as does Jesus. "And His name shall be called Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."
  • Wayne
    And then, God made a woman.

    The 7th day of rest occurred AFTER the six days of creation as a memorial of the creation.
