Adam and Eve’s sin

December 14, 2015

Men and women today commit Adam and Eve’s sin. That day the Devil asked Eve if she was sure that Yahuah really commanded them not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Today the Devil asks women if they are sure Yahuah has commanded them to be humble help meets and submit to their husbands. That day Adam compromised and listen to the woman. Today men do the same.


Eve is deceived

Eve was tempted by the Devil to be wiser than Yahuah. To question Yahuah's commands. Today, he is questioning women: did Yahuah really say that you should submit to your husband, that he should be your head and have authority over you? Did Yahuah really say that?

Now the serpent was more subtle than any animal of the field which Yahuah God had made. He said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?’”

Genesis 3:1

Falling for the lie

The lie of course is that there are no consequences of doing contrary to Yahuah's explicit command.

The serpent said to the woman, “You won’t surely die, for God knows that in the day you eat it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

- Genesis 3:4-5

Today, the Devil’s lie goes along the lines of:

“it won’t surely be bad for anyone, God knows that in the day you do not submit to your husband and take authority over him, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, having authority”

And the lies go on. 

Adam's sin is listening to the woman

While Eve was deceived, Adam wasn't deceived. He was disobedient. His sin was: he listened to the woman.

Yahuah said to Adam:

Because you have listened to your wife’s voice, and ate from the tree, about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it,’

- Genesis 3:17

Yahuah condemned the man first and foremost because he listened to his wife. He shouldn't have listened to her because Eve was wrong - and Adam knew it. He should have made his own decision and take authority over Eve. But he didn't.

Not that a man listening to his woman is wrong in general. But when he knows she is doing something wrong he shouldn't listen to her. Adam, obviously knew that Eve was wrong. He most likely just didn't want to admonish her, potentially escalate this to a conflict and as a result, lose her. He didn't want to rock the boat. He compromised.

Today, the the very same thing happens. Your wife is curious as she listens to the voices of feminism (the serpent). As the devil whispers she takes the first step and does something contrary to Yahuah's explicit command eg. submit to your husband. For instance she assumes leadership and she decides in an important family matter without you. You come home from work and she tells you about her decision. You don’t question this matter just accept her decision as a matter of fact. You don’t even realize that you are participating in Adam's sin. You are giving away your strength and authority to the woman. You put Yahuah and your own head to shame. You’re not a man, you became a woman.

The solution, of course, is that both men and women keep Yahuah's standards. Men and women of Yahuah, will you stand up today against the Devil and follow your Creator’s standards?
