Discussion for Genesis 3

    Eve wasn't created yet when God told Adam about the tree of good and evil, the devil went for eve instead of adam.

    16, many women may have trouble understanding why God said the husband is to rule over the wife, but face it, God said it! Someone has to be the boss and make the final decision especially in marriage and family. Not all men were created with wisdom and understanding though, and neither were all women. Which means they had to work together and let God be in charge. Right?
  • A disciple
    Rene; you can be sure that there are multitudes of parents who have since likewise mourned over a son that went to the devil! Even though they turned aside after wickedness; this doesn't make them not their parents; but the wicked chooses to NOT be their son! It is a wonder to me that God is so good and self-controlled toward wicked men; something I really have great difficulty with myself doing!
  • A disciple
    Rene; You have to read it again; Cain was their first son. There's multitudes of real sons and daughters that are not mentioned in the genealogy, because there was a specific purpose in WHO is named; that is, the line of the LORD's Anointed. Cain knew full well what was right, and chose to have a wicked mind against God and the Saviour to come; so he willfully omitted all reference to Christ.
  • A disciple
    Hi Donna; you know the more we read the Word the more we will get; and that's the way the Lord raises us, first we are toddlers then we get a little bigger then we can go to kindergarten elementary school, etc. And when you think back when you were little how kids tried to guess (or lie) about things only grown ups know about? Jesus said, "I have MANY THINGS to say to you" but we have to GROW UP.
  • Rene from Gods Ambassage
    The reason Cain is not in Adam genealogy is because Cain is not Adams son. Eve did eat which is to say take in the fruit parah paw-raw' that which brings forth from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which symbolized Satan. Because she did this God said He was going to multiply her conception. God is talking about adding to her conception, her pregnancy.
