Genesis 3

How do you react when someone disobeying you?

In the passage we read about Adam and Eve disobeying God by eating from the tree of good and evil. He knew they would disobey Him, and yet He responded by calling out to them and giving them a chance to confess what they had done. God sent His only son to die on the cross for our sins. He has also given us a chance to repent and be free from our sins. Just as He called to Adam and Eve, He has called us. God is a forgiving God. He does not hold anything against us and wants for us to be free from condemnation.

  1. I wouldn’t curse them, make them do hard work, make them feel increased pain, and make strife in their relationships to the point one is subservient to another. Long before God sent Jesus to save people from sin, God was content to watch men take up multiple wives and concubines and he didn’t even change the rules when he laid down the Temple Law worship system with Moses in charge. God did a lot of punishing before he started to do the forgiving.

    • There had to be consequences for disobeying God but that doesn’t mean He didn’t forgive them or love them. When they ate from the tree of good and evil, sin came into the world. Likewise, when we sin, there are consequences for our actions. The ultimate price for sin is death. However, God sent his son to die on the cross so we could be saved from our sins. God was never content with watching mankind do things like take up multiple wives, etc. God has always given us chance to make decisions whether we want to do what is right or submit to the desires of the flesh. Back then the people were doing a lot of things that were displeasing to God and they were sinning without considering their actions. As a result God flooded the earth and saved those whose hearts were right with Him. Those who chose to honour and serve Him. He never said we can sin and not pay for our actions, but as I mentioned loves us and forgives us no matter what we do and the consequences. Consequences are meant to teach and for us to learn. How can we learn from something if we don’t experience the consequences? In Matthew 27 we read about the distroying of all the old laws about the worship system. After Jesus died and as risen from the dead, anyone could worship God anywhere and anytime. He removed old law systems. I appreciate your comment, we can have a discussion and learn from each other.
