Adam and Eve

This world today is full of the various serious problems. Many scholars, different institutions, think tank organizations, religious figures, politicians…. have provide many academic opinions and theory to solve these worldwide problems. But these issues have not been solved since Adam and Eve sinned.

Genesis records how this world was created and how human be sinned. Actually, there were many things that God could be written into the Bible. But as we read the first few chapters of Genesis, we read about three things related to human. It should be very important and meaningful to us(human beings), which reveals global and catastrophic problems that also will arise in the human world later. It helps us understanding these worldwide problems and gain the keys to solve them, moving towards a bright future. Let’s start with a brief introduction to these verses in the Bible.

    As the Bible records that Adam and Eve were created on sixth creation day. God declared that everything were good. Genesis3:1-5 records that the snake deceived Eve to eat the fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil, and Eve was deceived. After that, Eve gave the fruit to Adam and he ate it too. Genesis2:7 records that their eyes were opened and seeing that they were naked, so they covered themselves with fig leaves. Started from that moment sins has entered into the human world.

    When Jehovah God called Adam, they were afraid and hid. When God called him repeatedly, he answered that they were scared because of Naked. Genesis3:11 God said: “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” Then Jehovah God made the judgment, Adam and Eve were driven out of the Garden of Eden.

   Genesis chapter 4 recorded that Adam and Eve got the eldest son named “Cain”, and later Eve gave birth to another son named “Abel”. Cain was farming, and Abel was a shepherd. One day, Cain took the produces of the land as a gift offered to God, and Abel also offered the young lambs of his flock together with the fat as a gift to God. Jehovah God accepted Abel’s sacrifice but not Cain’s. Cain’s countenance changed and he became very angry.

    Genesis 4:6,7 Jehovah God admonished Cain and said, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.” He told Cain to do good and subdue sin and evil mind. But obviously Cain did not subdue evil, but was subdued by evil mind to do evil things. He attacked his brother and killed him.

    Jehovah God revealed the above three things at the beginning of the Genesis (1)Adam and Eve were deceived by a snake and ate the fruit of tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and sin(evil mind) entered into their minds(wrong sexual concept). (2)Cain attacked Abel (brothers fight brothers). (3)Killing occurred. We can see these three things are our worldwide major problems, let’s think about it.

    (1) First, starting from Adam and Eve, the most serious problem faced by mankind is that we have improper sexual thoughts and conception of evil mind. This creates the biggest problem in the human world. This causes suspicion, jealousy, strife, rape and all sexual crimes…between the relationship of men and women. All of these made bad influences on mankind, such as unwanted pregnancy, husband and wife discord, infidelity, family quarrels, domestic violence, family breakdown, divorce, killing…

    These bad influences not only affect themselves and the next generation, but also affecting generations to generations, families to families. In this terrible family situation, child’s life are full of fear, lack of love, unhappiness… Improper sexual is one of the main parts of evil mind. Who took away the pure, cute, happiness and trust in childhood? What distorts the psychology and physiology of our kids? It needs to emphasize that not only affects that child, but also affects child’s generations… Who was the first child? That was the first generation(Cain and Abel) of Adam and Eve, and till to our generations right now.

    (2)Second, when Adam and Eve’s generations formed families, then many Families formed became fraternal tribes, and after a long long time, many fraternal tribes became different fraternal nations. They are developing into different languages, different ethnic groups and became all countries all nations today.

    Cain hatred Abel, and attacked Abel. The biblical account of this event was revealing that, brothers attack brothers, tribes attack tribes, nations attack nations and it will be happened repeatly. Started from Cain attack Abel with a stone, after that human used the bows, spears, spears, knifes, swords, Guns, artillery, tanks, fighter jets, warships, missiles, rockets, nuclear weapons… attack their brothers, fraternal tribes, nations. Hurting and killing was started from a man to present. The root cause is that brothers are at odds and hate each other, so that’s another major part of evil.

   (3)Third, Cain killed his brother Abel finally. Jehovah God revealed that this single and individual murders to show us the murders will continue appear in our community. How often encounter these terrible things around us? Yes, you know the answer. These things make us feel depression and horrified. If we are the victims, undoubtedly it will make us experience most deeper panic, depression, and will experience deeply pain both of physically and mentally… If “killing” sprouted in people’s mind, it will lead them take action. 1 John 3:15 says ” Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” So we must sweep out the “killing” mind and keep our mind clean. “Killing” is another main evil.

   As God’s people, He gave us the Bible to make us aware of these evils. May we all think about how to solve these world’s problems. May we all love good and hate evil, do the will of God. Amen.
