Noah Van MilWhat is revealed about human nature (from Genesis 1-2)?In Genesis 1 and 2, it was revealed that every person’s human nature was and is to live with God with the wisdom he constantly is providing for us. Originally, it was considered a sin to have wisdom do to the fact that temptation, idolatry, and selfishness were shown through these actions.What are the consequences of the fall for human nature (from Genesis 3)?Sin had entered the world when we as humans (Adam and Eve) decided to turn our backs on God and what he said. Ever since this first sin, humans have grown to be sinful by nature and have deserved death as it is the payment for sin. The consequence of disobeying God, as it says in Genesis 3, is now there is that separation between us and Him because of our own sinful nature. 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?Humans purpose is about how God wanted to have a man like him in physical form and therefore created humans. According to the bible, it clear that God wanted his creations, the human species, to obey his commands and to have trust in all the qualities and facilities provided through His creations. Soon after creating man, Adam, and later his wife, Eve, humans started to question the amount of trust they really could have on all God had created for them and wanted to test his works of the world. This thinking and mistrust in God leads to temptation for desire allowing for sin to be born and with sinning leads to death
