THE GENESIS OF SIN. Pt. 1

Many of us agree to the fact that the genesis of sin was in the Garden of Eden through the first man and woman called Adam and Eve respectively. However, we do not agree on what actually the sin they committed was. The purpose of this article is to expose that sin.

This article is a 7 part series surrounding the events leading to and after the genesis of sin. We shall answer questions like, “What is the tree of Knowledge of good and evil?” “Why did Adam and Eve realize there nakedness only after sinning?” and many more.

The misconception

Satan has deceived man that genesis of sin was because of fornication. This teaching weakens the moral commitment to serve Christ in righteousness."If Adam and Eve who were created without sin sinned, why can't you do it", whispers Satan into the ears of many people.

Let us analyze a few scriptures to iron out this misconception. In Genesis chapter 2 verses 23 through 24, we read, “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh”. (Genesis 2:23-24)

Adam’s exclamation when he saw Eve explains it all. The first word to consider is “now” which means “at the present time, not the past or future”. The second observation is the use of words bone of my bones, which signifies “joining together”. The body of humans is made up of bones joint together called the skeleton. Therefore, the word bone of my bones signifies the concept of joining things together. The third observation is the use of words flesh of my flesh. You see it is not possible to distinguish where flesh is joined to together. Hence, the concept of flesh means oneness. This is a complete wholeness as joint bones wrapped in one piece of flesh.

Therefore, to paraphrase Adam’s speech it will sound like this, “This is at this present time, the one I am joined to, and we are one and inseparable”.

Christ said the same thing. In the Gospel of Matthew and chapter 19 verses 4 through 6, we read, “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:4-6)

Once more Christ amplifies the concept of one flesh and joining. That is Male and Female joined together (bone to bone) by God and made one flesh, hence, inseparable.

The background of Christ’s quotation is the question concerning divorce that the Pharisees tempted Him with. Therefore, Jesus is explaining the concept of marriage in the above quoted verse. He is actually reverberating Adams words. Hence, Adam too was talking about his marriage to Eve. How at that very present time, they were so one and joined such that they were absolutely inseparable”.

This sounds like marriage to me.

Although through Adam and Eve is the Genesis of sin, through Adam and Eve is also the genesis of marriage. Adam married Eve at first site and hence could not commit any sexual sin with her. Sex in marriage is a gift from God to be enjoyed.

Be Blessed.
