For my Theology assignment. I will be reflecting on two subjects that have given me a better apprehension of what it means to be a Christian. Since I was immature I have ever been taught a basic cognition of what it means to be a Christ follower but understanding the significance of being a Christian has deepened my cognition even more. The two subjects I will be reflecting on are the Fall of Man and Temptation. Both of these subjects provide clear understanding on how and why society in today’s universe is the manner it is. They besides provide hope in restoring the relationship between God and adult male.
The Fall of Man:
The autumn of adult male marks the twenty-four hours where the relationship between God and adult male changed drastically. Harmonizing to the Hutchinson Unabridged Encyclopedia. “the Fall of Man occurred in the Garden of Eden when the Serpent tempted Eve to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. ” By making this. Adam and Eve were everlastingly punished and were no longer allowed to hold the confidant relationship they had with God. In Genesis chapter 3 poetries 15 – 19. God explained to both Adam and Eve that their expletive on this Earth was to populate off of the land. the adult female would see utmost hurting during child birth. and they were to be everlastingly banned from the Garden of Eden. Genesis is really clear on depicting the consequence Adam and Eve’s wickedness had on world. And because of their action. world is everlastingly separated from God until He returns. What I have learned from the Fall of Man is that although adult male is temporarily separated from God’s confidant relationship. it does non intend we are unable to achieve that particular relationship with Him once more. We were created in the image of God to idolize Him and to convey glorification to His name. God wants us to populate out that day-to-day relationship by speaking with Him and reading His Word which is the best manner of pass oning with Him since we can non verbally hear Him speak to us. Just like any relationship we have with others here on Earth. we have to work hard to maintain the relationship alive.
