Pamphlet #6224 Genesis KC 9-2

Sometimes those who are "street wise"
have an advantage in understanding the realities of the flesh man.

We now return to the garden of Eden.

Our Father has been "spelling out" the consequences earned from man's first sin.

Adam has fallen from grace.

Here's what he's got coming:

Genesis 3:17
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
I know this is the 21st century.
But like it or not, Adam was placed in authority
and God held him responsible for allowing this carnal event to transpire.

Worse yet, he not only permitted it to happen,
he participated as well,
the exact circumstances of which I will leave to your own speculation and imagination,
trusting that you will use good common sense and wisdom.

Sometimes those who are "street wise" have an advantage in understanding the realities of the flesh man.

[18] Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
Hey, it's time to plant wheat and corn for food, pal,
and don't forget to pull the weeds or they will choke out the crop.
[19] In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
You had it made right there in the garden of Eden, Adam.

Perfect utopia.

But you blew it!

Dad's no longer going to provide everything for you "on a silver platter".

Go find out what it is like to have to work for a living.

Then of course, you're going to die, son!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
