Discussion for Genesis 3

  • A disciple
    Jevon; Adam means "Red" as from the ground he was taken from and created. The first murderer sinned against God, against his brother whom he slew, and against his own moral consciousness; for God came to him beforehand and said, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen? If you do right won't you be blessed? but if you do not right sin is at the door. Cain chose to be heathen instead!
  • Jevon
    I have a questions also that I was getting to. How did this come across my mind. Because I thought about it many times...what is the commandments, law, precepts...who broke it first...it look like it was me as well as Adam a human being isn't that what's adam name means?

    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.
