Adam and Eve: Their effects on mankind

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Adam and Eve: Their effects on mankind My interpretation of Adam and Eve The biblical story of Adam and Eve is found in Genesis the first book of The Bible. Genesis is literally a book about the beginning of mankind and the creation of the world. According to Genesis, God created the world and all it's inhabitants in six days. Although God was pleased with all that he created, his greatest creation was that of mankind, made in his image. First, God created Adam "the man," then he put Adam into a deep sleep a removed a rib from him to create Eve " The Woman". Then according to Genesis 1:26, God gave them complete dominion over the earth and all therein. God then placed his "best" creation in the "best" place in the world to live, The Garden of Eden. This garden was created to be mans "Utopia". In this utopia, God gave Adam one commandment, to enjoy everything and eat anything in the garden except from "The Tree of Knowledge." After this commandment God blessed both the man and the woman, and allowed them live as the pleased being free will agents. ...read more.

In the same regard, I believe that is why we are so different emotionally, because there are some things God purposely removed from them man and placed in the women, and why some things were left in the man never to be place in a woman. I also think that Eve's temptation by the serpent and conscientious decision to do her will instead of the will of God shows us what kind of God created us. Surely, a God he was able to hang the stars in the sky and cause the earth to bring for life could create man like a robot, made to only obey commands with no individual reasoning or thinking skills. However, he didn't do that, he gave us the ability to make decision and live life in his will or out. This is why we I believe that in some ways we are "The Captain" of our fate. We can decide to both receive and walk the road that God has prepared for us, or to reject it and walk the road of death and destruction. Life Lessons I think that "The Creation" story teaches us a variety of lessons. ...read more.

Conclusion

Personal Opinions In my personal opinion, I think that throughout this story we see the fall of mankind. We see how the na�ve idle unsuspecting mind of Eve became a work place for the devil. We also see how a cracked door of opportunity can become an open door for troubles and deceit. I really believe that Eve was the door to the house, which we now live in. However, I don't blame all of the evils in this world on Eve. I think just as Eve decided her fate, Adam decided his. Adam was the one directly given the commandment from God and he had the same opportunity Eve had to denounce the devil and follow God's will. Had Adam been obedient go Gods command and had he assumed his position and upheld his authority in the garden he wouldn't have been exiled with Eve. Although, Eve opened the floodgate for sin and disobedience, I think that we must all make a personal decision based on the knowledge and wisdom we have obtained, to make Godly decisions. Decisions that will not just bring us moments of pleasure and temporary gratification, but decisions that will sustain us in every circumstance and situations. Decisions that we don't have to be ashamed or regret when we stand before men or in the judgment of God. ?? ?? ?? ?? 5 ...read more.

    Another reason on why God does not curse Eve, is because God does not tell Eve directly not to eat out of the tree but she receives the message from Adam (Gen 2:15-17) for he is the one that receives the message from God directly.
