Adam & Eve Leave the Garden
Before you begin this Bible study, If you have never believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, John 3:16 tells us: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.’ Simply have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and you will have eternal life and be saved. If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior; then 1 John 1:9 tells us; “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Simply privately tell God the Father your sins to be filled with God the Holy Spirit and He will teach you Bible truth.

Promise Memory Verse
“Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.” Colossians 3:20
Alison learned from the eye doctor that she needed glasses. She chose a sparkly purple pair. Her mom told her never to put them in her backpack when she wasn’t wearing them, or they would break.
One week later, Alison’s friend Melissa invited her over for a sleep over. They, made orange glitter slime, watched a movie, baked brownies, painted their toenails with silver shimmer polish and giggled a lot.
The next day, when Alison’s dad came to the door to pick her up, she stuffed her things into her book bag and got into the car. On their way home, they picked up their dog Patton; he jumped on top of Alison’s bag and stuck his head out the window.
When they got home, Alison looked inside of her book bag for her orange slime; instead she found her new glasses broken in half. She was mad at her dog, even though it wasn’t his fault. Alison was wrong because she disobeyed her mom. She needed to rebound of course. Alison’s mom told her that she also had to be punished, and so she wasn’t allowed to go to her cousin’s swim party or to the outdoor movie theater with her brother and sister. God wants parents to discipline their kids when they make mistakes so they will grow up to be responsible and happy adults.
We have been studying how God created Adam and the woman and every living thing. People didn’t start out as monkeys and the earth didn’t explode into existence. God always tells us the truth, He is veracity.
Adam and the woman were happy living in the Garden of Eden where there wasn’t any rain, lightning, thunderstorms or snow. Adam kept busy naming all of the animals and the woman was his helper. God made only one rule which was not to eat from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.’
One day Satan who is the father of all lies and very evil, got inside of a serpent and tricked the woman into eating the fruit from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.” He lied, making the woman think eating the fruit would make her as smart as God.
When Adam and the woman ate the forbidden fruit, they suddenly knew they were wrong. They lost their human spirits which stored up Bible Doctrine and now they had old sin natures. They were called the first sinners.
God came looking for them in the morning, but they were so ashamed that they hid behind some trees. He found them right away. Then asked them if they broke the rule.
Adam blamed the woman for giving him the fruit and the woman blamed the serpent for tricking her into eating the fruit. This was wrong. God never wants you to blame someone else when you do something bad. Adam and the woman didn’t respect God’s authority when they disobeyed Him. When you don’t obey or respect authority, you need to rebound and accept any punishment that is given out by the person in authority over you.
God had to punish Adam and the woman. He made them leave the beautiful Garden of Eden. Adam now would have to give up his wonderful job of naming the animals and work hard to grow his own food. The woman would now have a lot of pain when she had kids. Adam named her Eve which means the mother of all living.
Since Adam and Eve were now sinners they had to believe that Jesus Christ would come to die on the cross and pay for their sins. Today you need to believe that Jesus Christ already paid for your sins on the cross. Once you believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, you get human spirits to store your Bible Doctrine in and God lives inside of you forever.
You do things God’s way, when you respect authority.
