Academic Questions in CRS

Jealousy is one of the attributes of God
Noah had three sons after he was _____ years old.
According to Genesis chapter 1 verses 6 – 8, God created _____ on the second day.
Let me start by asking you a question. "If God had not created you, what would you have done?"
The truth is, God created you for these reasons;
Our first parent, Adam and Eve enjoyed a life of complete happiness before they committed sin. They never knew what pain nor sorrow was before they disobeyed God. To cut short the long story, Adam and Eve eventually committed sin. They were able to commit sin because God had given them that special gift of free will.
Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the Lord God had made. The snake asked the woman, “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?”
Moral Lesson: The devil can come in any form and can tempt any man, woman, boy or girl, as far as he or she is of the age of reasoning. Sometimes, satan creeps into ones life by asking simple questions. We need to be at alert prayerfully because the evil one can tempt at any time and place.
We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden,” the woman answered, “except the tree in the middle of it. God told us not to eat the fruit of that tree or even touch it; if we do, we will die.” The snake replied, “That's not true; you will not die. God said that because he knows that when you eat it, you will be like God and know what is good and what is bad.”
Moral Lesson: The devil is always a lair and can be very manipulative. He has no capacity to say a truth because he is the father of all lies. Also, the more you keep a conversation with temptation, the more likely you are to fall to it. Jesus Himself rebuked the devil when He was tempted in Matthew:4-10. When these negative thoughts of temptation comes, you must rebuke it and channel your mind and energy to something positive.
The woman saw how beautiful the tree was and how good its fruit would be to eat, and she thought how wonderful it would be to become wise. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, and he also ate it. As soon as they had eaten it, they were given understanding and realized that they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and covered themselves.
Moral Lesson: Pride is a capital sin. Eve must have pondered a lot about what satan told her. Eve did not appreciate how beautifully God had created her. She wanted something more. She wanted to be wise. She wanted to be like God because that was what satan had lied to her. Always know that not everything that looks beautiful or pleasing is good for you. Be careful about the way you dress, talk or act so that you will not lead others into sin. Committing sin can only make one become naked of grace.
That evening they heard the Lord God walking in the garden, and they hid from him among the trees. But the Lord God called out to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden; I was afraid and hid from you, because I was naked.” “Who told you that you were naked?” God asked. “Did you eat the fruit that I told you not to eat?” The man answered, “The woman you put here with me gave me the fruit, and I ate it.” The Lord God asked the woman, “Why did you do this?” She replied, “The snake tricked me into eating it.”
Moral Lesson: God knows and sees all things. He is constantly watching us. We can never hide our actions from God.
God calls us every time we sin but sometimes, we feel so ashamed and afraid to answer. We may even go further to tell God that "we committed the sin because of what He has given to us". The truth is, nothing can separate us from the love of God if we truly love Him. We sin out of our own will and selfishness.
Whenever we sin, we have to own up and admit that we are sinners, then beg for God's mercy. Please read the parable of the Prodigal Son here. If you read carefully the above passage, you will observe that Adam and Eve did not really admitted that they sinned, instead all they did was to pass the blame to someone else.
