Although Adam failed to stand against temptation to sin, Chris,t the last Adam, conquered when tempted. Read in Matthew 4:1-11 how He overcame the devil, and how you can, too!
When temptation leads to sin, there are severe consequences. Genesis 3 reveals the result of even the first sin of mankind.
Genesis 3 describes how we are tempted to sin. The devil uses the same procedure today as he did many thousands of years ago.
The significance of sin cannot be overemphasized. Genesis 2 and 3 make it clear that we cannot comprehend who we are and why we act as we do apart from an understanding of sin.
Hebrews 4:12 makes it clear that the distinction between soul and spirit can only be discerned by the word of God. This is why so few, including many Christian “scholars,” subscribe to this distinction: they ignore the Scriptures.
The natural (soulish) man is contrasted with the spiritual man in 1 Corinthians. One is unsaved and the latter is the normal state of the Christian.
Although in the previous broadcast the 3-fold nature of man was introduced, this concept is so controversial and rejected by so many even in Bible-believing circles, that further exposition is required. Again, 1 Thessalonians 5:23 clearly states that man is spirit, soul and body.
Among Christians controversy swirls around the composition of a human being. Body and soul, or spirit, soul, and body?
Marriage and its traditions are found in the second chapter of Genesis. Marriage was started by God Himself presenting the bride!
Genesis 2 contains the record of the creation of the first woman. The female of the human race is a fascinating and unique creation of God.
