The Story of Adam and Eve
To really understand how we all got here, what it really means to be "born again" and why there is so much death and destruction in the world we live in - you have to go back to the very beginning to the story of Adam and Eve as told to us in the Bible.
To truly understand our roots and beginnings as Christians, we have to fully understand what occurred in this story. In this article, we will cover the basic highlights of exactly what God was doing when He created the first man and the first woman and what happened when they could not stay off of the one tree that He told them not to eat from.
As a result of their one disobedient act, all of mankind had to be born into an imperfect fallen world subject to death, corruption, demonic spirits and bad and evil people who have chosen with their free wills to live this life on the dark side - thereby causing untold pain, death and misery to millions of people throughout the ages.
This incredible story also explains God's perfect setup in arranging for His Son Jesus Christ to come to our earth in the flesh, to go to the cross to die for all of the sins of mankind - thereby restoring our divine connection back to God the Father and gaining us entry into heaven when we all die and cross over. The story of Adam and Eve (sets the stage) for the greatest story that will ever be told - the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to our earth to save us from our sins.
This story also explains exactly what it means to born "again." Adam and Eve lost "something" that day when they committed their first sin against God by eating off the tree of the knowledge and good and evil. After Jesus comes to our earth to die for all of our sins - we then get back that "something" that Adam and Eve lost that day - hence the word born "again." This article will fully explain what that "something" was and how we got that "something" back "again" after Jesus died on the cross.
This story needs to be fully understood by every Christian so we know who we really are "in Christ Jesus" and exactly why there is so much death and destruction in our earthly lives. Knowledge that this story will give you on these topics will also help you when witnessing to nonbelievers - especially when you have to deal with one of the most frequently asked question by many nonbelievers - if there really is a God, how could He allow so many bad things to happen to so many people on our earth throughout the last 6000 years?
Once you fully understand the consequences that occurred after Adam and Eve ate off of that one forbidden tree - you will have the knowledge and insight to fully explain the answer to that question to anyone who may ask you - whether it be to a nonbeliever or even to another Christian who really doesn't understand the "Big Picture" and why things are the way they are in this life.
