Bible Time Period: Early World
In the Early World, you created the heavens and Earth and tested Adam and Eve in the garden. Help me today to choose the life you offer.
Yesterday you read about the fall from grace of our first parents. Adam and Eve’s sin had a permanent effect on all future people in that their fallen nature was passed on to their children, and theirs, and so on down to you and me. As a result, we are born lacking supernatural life in our souls. “Original sin” is not something we do, it is something we are: it is a state of being. Our souls are wounded. Our wills are weakened. We are subject to pain and death. We are inclined to sin. Watch how this plays out in the world as you read about life after the Fall.
Look for differences in the pattern used in the genealogy in Chapter 5 to describe each new generation. Who stands out and why?
