The first sin of eating the apple set forth a multitude of sins that we are dealing with to this day. Adam and Eve immediately recognized nakedness and this shows itself in today's world with sexual perversions. Wasn’t Cain that killed Abel the first murder in the world. Didn’t deceit, lying cheating and stealing all come from this first deviation for what God planned for us. The only question I have is the God I know,
Also Genesis says that there is only one God who created the earth and humans with words. God created humans in his image. He only wanted that mankind live happily in the Garden of Eden. The only command God gave Adam and Eve was to do not eat of the fruit of good and evil tree. In Genesis there is only on god and
The good mind was creating the beautiful part of the universe while the bad mind was making the harmful regions. In the Holy Bible it said that God created heaven and earth, light and darkness, animals and birds and made man as His image. No one else helped God in his creation, there was no bad or good mind helping Him doing so. He was the only one to create the whole world as the Bible said. According to the Iroquois story the bad mind was the evil spirit and it’s last words before it got crushed in the earth was that he would have equal power over the souls of mankind after death.
Doubt being first, but then overcoming that obstacle and then seeking reconciliation for the previous doubt. I will tackle these topics in the order in which I believe they happen, and then discuss how this relates to myself and how this class has helped me get to this point, having gained a better understanding of the scriptures. II. Part One – Doubt a. Theological Definition People can doubt many things throughout their life; people, claims, objects, time, situations and sometimes even facts. While there are many people who do not stray or question their faith in God or Jesus Christ, there are still also many that do continue to retain doubts.
God has placed the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the middle of the Garden of Eden, and has commanded Adam and Eve not to eat of it. The Tree of Life is also there, but God does not seem to have placed any restrictions on it. Within the text of Genesis you

Jack Shorb Contradictions in the Bible In the view of the Jewish faith, God is all knowing and omnipotent. Throughout the Bible contradictions are made with what role God plays in human’s decisions. In the story of Noah and the flood, God floods the world to wipe out everything except for a pair of every animal and human. If God is all knowing, he knew that the world he was creating was going to turn to a point where God would become frustrated enough to kill everyone. Why than did God create the world only to destroy it.
That's why I preach my way through entire books of the Bible, dealing carefully with each verse and phrase--even though that occasionally means spending time in passages that don't readily lend themselves to anecdotal or motivational messages. I am grateful to the Lord for the way He has used this exposi- tory approach in our church and in the lives of our radio listeners.
