Creation – Respect
Part 2 07/19/2020
Adam and the woman disobey
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
“Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted,
and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:2
God created Adam out of dust and breathed the breath of life into him. Can you imagine anyone else who has the power, wisdom and humor to take a dust bunny and make a living person?
Adam had a soul and a human spirit. He didn’t have an old sin nature like we do. God taught him Bible Doctrine every day which was stored in his human spirit. God placed Adam in the beautiful Garden of Eden. There wasn’t any rain, thunderstorms, tornados or hurricanes. Adam didn’t even need a winter coat or an umbrella because the weather was perfect.
God gave Adam the job of naming all of the animals. There was only one rule that God made for him to follow which was not to eat from the “tree of knowledge of good and evil.”One day, God decided to make Adam a helpmate. He put Adam into a deep sleep and took one of his ribs and created a beautiful woman. She had a soul and a human spirit to store her Bible Doctrine in too, and no old sin nature. God gave her the same rule as He gave Adam.
One day there was an evil sneaky serpent in the Garden of Eden who was really Satan in disguise. He wanted the woman to disobey God, so he came up with a plan to trick her into eating fruit from the forbidden tree.
When Satan saw the woman, he talked from inside the serpent and asked her if God made a rule that said she couldn’t eat from any tree in the garden. She told him that God only told her that she couldn’t eat from the tree in the middle of the garden or touch it that tree or she would die.
Satan is the father of all lies. He lied to the woman and told her that she wouldn’t die if she ate the fruit and that if she ate it, she would be just as smart as God.
The woman believed Satan, and she disobeyed God and ate the fruit and even gave some to Adam who ate it as well. Both Adam and Eve said no to God by sinning. They didn’t obey or respect God. They are now known as the first sinners.
Oh no! Guess what happened? They lost the human spirit that God gave them that had Bible Doctrine stored in it. Now they had old sin natures living in their bodies and a soul and they understood what sin was. Next week, we will see what happens next.
Last week, we learned that we all have to respect and obey God. He wants kids have to respect and obey their parents, teachers, coaches even the police and others in authority over them. Your teacher may teach you about something called the theory of evolution. Theories are just guesses and are not truth that we always hear from God. He is (veracity.)
The theory of evolution tells us that people were made from monkeys which aren’t true. Another false thing that your teacher may tell you is that the earth and everything it came into being because of a huge explosion called the big bang theory. Again, theories are just guesses.
God always tells us the truth in the Bible.
When your teacher is wrong, you still have to respect them. It would be wrong to jump up and start yelling at your teacher and to call them a liar. This would show disrespect to them which is never ok to do. Instead, simply show respect and this is the time to use the faith-rest-drill.
You are a created child of God!
