CWV 101 Consequences of the Fall and Contemporary ResponsePart 1: Human Nature in Genesis 1-31.What Genesis 1-2 discovered about human nature is that God formed humans in the image of Himself. Genesis 1-2 also explains God’s six day creation. Chapter 4 of Wisdom in the Beginning says, “Humans were supposed to operate their lives according to wisdom under God’s Kingly reign” (GCU, 2020). God’s purpose when it came to creating man, was for humanity to live life in the image of God and to act as God would. After creating the man, God felt that the man needed the help from someone else for the sake of humanity. This led to the creation of a woman.2.When it came to the fall, there were many consequences for humanity. One of them wasdeath. In (Genesis 3:3), Eve relayed to the serpent what God did not want her and Adam to do. “You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neithershall you touch it, lest you die.” For Eve and the women, the consequence was to cause pain during childbirth. As well as having man ruling over woman. The fall brought sadness, pain, and suffering to humanity. Working and taking care of the land became difficult and painful. The biggest consequence was the separation from God. With the fall happening, a sacrifice is needed because of our sins.3.In order to for humans to flourish, humans have to be wise in order to know God. FollowHis simple orders and His path. To get the spiritual, emotional, and mental well-being, humanity needs to renounce the persuasion/lure and greed. “It is only when our relationship of glad obedience to God governs everything that we will be truly free” (Shuster, 2013 p.41). With the fall happening, we are corrupt, and His creation will now suffer with a curse because of the sins from Adam and Eve. If we keep frequently going back to the center, humanity can find One who shall save and protect us (Shuster, 2013).
