Write your paragraph response directly below each question: 1.What is revealed about human nature (from Genesis 1-2)?As the Book of Genesis begins, it explains the creation of the universe by God. The constant concise statement of the artistic work of the Lord is one phrase: "good." All that the Lord produces in the first six days is "good " right down towards the most significant developmentthat happens on the sixth day: humanity. According to Diffey he informs that "It becomes evident through the history of creation that all, specifically mankind, has been made very good” (Diffey, 2015). The very first humans created, were Adam and Eve, who were made without sin; they have been in a state of innocence hadn't ever personally selected or encountered evil. God instructed Adam and Eve to maintain the gardens within the sense of an unhindered, close relationship with Him. In order to maintain to experience this condition of life in the presence of their Father, Adam and Eve were only supposed to obey God's word an obligation that was not out of control. Unfortunately, they have failed Gods word. 2.What are the consequences of the fall for human nature (from Genesis 3)? When the devil coerced Eve to eat an apple off of the forbidden tree God condemned humanity. He disciplined women by making childbirth difficult and birth a tedious task and by having them service their husbands. He found life unbearable for men, and saw that men had to work in the fields and struggle constantly in order to be able to survive. This penalty was vexed by God with Him, saying, "You shall eat your food before you return to the earth, for you are dust, and to the dust you shall return" (Genesis 3:16). In the face of God's evident dismay and frustration at human defiance, a seemingly insurmountable gap opened up amongmankind and God, dividing humans from their Father and making us long for the extent of His attention and approval that we have lost.3.What is revealed about human purpose from the readings? What does it mean for humans to flourish, in other words to achieve spiritual, emotional, and mental well-being? In order for mankind to prosper, we should look out for others and realize that this is mainly contained inside God and continues for eternity (Topic 3 Summary, 2017). In order that we can ultimately succeed, we shall hold God at the center of our lives (Shuster, 2013, pg. 41).
