Consequences of Adam and Eve's Disobedience:

According to christian scholars, 'obedience is the first law in heaven'. Obedience can only be possible or realized where there is a command or law.

When God created Adam and Eve, He placed them in the garden of Eden where they were in complete control of everything present therein. God’s first command to man came into place in Genesis 3:15-17.

  • Then the LORD GOD placed man in the Garden of Eden to cultivate it and guard it. He said to him, 'You may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad. You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day.'

Please read the Biblical account of Human Disobedience here.


Although the bible did not record the presence of the woman (Eve) when God gave the above command to man (Adam); however, Adam must have told her about God’s command. Eve proved she was aware of this command in Genesis 3:2-3.

  • 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.'

Eventually, Adam and Eve disobeyed God in Genesis 3:6-7.

  • 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.


From the above passages, we can now be certain that Adam and Eve disobeyed God.

Below are 8 Consequences of Adam and Eve’s Disobedience

 

  1. All God’s creature became guilty of original sin

The only two persons born of a woman; who broke this rule were Jesus and his mother Mary.

Although it was not recorded in the bible that Mary was conceived without original sin; this still remain the belief of some christian scholars.

Note: Original sin is not a sin committed by us. This sin is not a function of our actions; rather it is a function of the disobedience of Adam and Eve.

Every human being born of a woman automatically inherits original sin. This implies that every child is guilty of original sin; even right in the womb of their mother.

The good news is: 'This inherited sin (original sin) can be forgiven via only one way; and that’s baptism'.

To become free of original sin, every person needs to be baptized of water; in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Although Jesus had no stain of original sin, he fulfilled all righteousness by practically undergoing baptism in order to emphasize its importance.

  • At that time Jesus arrived from Galilee and came to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. But John tried to make him change his mind. 'I ought to be baptized by you, John said; and yet you have come to me!' But Jesus answered him; 'Let it be so for now. For in this way we shall do all that God requires.' So John agreed. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he came up out of the water. The heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and alighting on him.

    Matthew 3:13:16

Please read the Biblical account of Creation here.

 

  1. Human perfection was lost

Before Adam and Eve sinned, they were such a perfect creature that God walked in their environment (the garden of Eden).

They were so perfect and innocent that they didn't even realize that they were naked. Their perfection also made them worthy of God’s garden.

As soon as they disobeyed God, they lost their perfection, realized that they were naked and were eventually driven out of the garden.

  • So the LORD God sent him out of the Garden of Eden and made him cultivate the soil from which he had been formed.

    Genesis 3:23

Please read the Attributes of God here.

 

  1. God’s judgment was pronounced on the snake, woman and man

This is recorded in the Genesis 3:14-20:

  • Then the Lord said to the snake, 'You will be punished for this; you alone of all animals must bear this curse: from now on you will crawl on your belly, and you will have to eat dust as long as you live'.

  • And He said to the woman, 'I will increase your trouble in pregnancy and your pain in giving birth. In spite of this, you will still have desire for your husband, yet you will be subject to him.'

  • And He said to the man, 'You listened to your wife and ate the fruit which I told you not to eat. Because of what you have done, the ground will be under a curse. You will have to work hard all your life to make it produce enough food for you. It will produce weeds and thorns, and you will have to eat wild plants.'

NOTABLE POINTS IN CRS

Joseph (in the old testament of the bible) is the 11th son of Jacob out of 12 brothers. He is so loved by his father because he was born when his father was in his old age. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated the young innocent boy (Joseph). Meanwhile, his dad made a special coat for him.

According to the Bible (Genesis 37), Joseph is a dreamer boy (and also an excellent interpreter of dreams). This gift of his further made him an object of envy and hate among his brothers.

Out of envy, his brothers decided to kill him but God saved his life through one of them named Reuben. Reuben is the firstborn of Jacob's 12 children.

Please read more on Joseph's story here

By looks, Joseph is a handsome young man and Potipher’s wife could not take her seductive eyes off him. She made a series of sexual advances to Joseph but he clearly refused her in all the attempts she had made. Joseph showed discipline and fear of the Lord during this period of temptation.

After failed attempts to seduce Joseph, she finally got hold of a piece of Joseph’s garment when Joseph ran away from her sexual seduction. She became furious, perhaps afraid that Joseph might report her to Potipher, her husband. She therefore lied to Potipher that Joseph attempted to seduce her and she ran away grabbing a piece of Joseph’s clothing. She showed Potipher the cloth as a proof of her lies. For this reason, Potipher imprisoned Joseph.

Joseph had always prospered every where he found himself, and the prison is not an exception. Even in the prison, the warden promoted him by putting him in charge of all the prisoners.

Below are some qualities of Joseph that made him a great leader in Egypt:

  • Discipline: Joseph had every chance to commit sin with the King’s wife when he was tempted. However, because he had discipline over his body, he said no and eventually had himself imprisoned.

  • Faithfulness: Joseph is a man of great faith. He believed completely in God and would rather suffer his body than to gratify it in adultery.
    He also proved his faith in Potipher’s business, showing that he can be trusted.

  • Humility: Even though he was the 11th child of his father’s old age, he remained humble to his brothers when they hated him. His humility is one virtue that made him a great leader in Egypt.

  • Gracious: Joseph was gracious to his brothers who betrayed him. He showed compassion and mercy in their time of greatest need. He gave them food and forgave them during the time of severe famine.

  • Selfless: He gave his time to the service of others, interpreting dreams and helping them to successfully manage their affairs. This made him promoted in every situation he found himself, whether as a slave, a prisoner or a free man.

Our world will change for the better the moment we start accepting suffering; while also practically assisting and praying for those who suffer.

The beauty of Jesus' suffering is the many that will be saved by his blood.

I don't believe I have special talents, I have persistence. After the first failure, second failure, third failure, I kept trying.

Carlo Rubbia, Nobel price winning physicist

Great success is built on failure, frustration, even catastrophy.

Beauty of Suffering - Len Academy​​​​​​According to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP);

Pain is defined as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage.

Pain is a sign that something unpleasant is about to happen, is happening or had happened. It creates a memory to avoid facing another future (similar) danger. For instance, think of 'a baby and a fire'. The baby touched the fire previously and got hurt. Now when he encounters the fire, he won’t touch it.

As we grow, we experience different forms of suffering, some of which will define our destiny. Consider this instance of a legendary footballer below:

  • Christiano Ronaldo is a footballer who had achieved greatness because he spent extra hours on trainings, fitness and hard-work. We can see the efforts of his work on the pitch. If he had gone about drinking, trying to avoid the stress and suffering of trainings, he may not have become what he is.

  • Also, students suffer sleepless nights to get good grades.

Without suffering and pains, we would not properly understand the true meanings of love, joy, faith, hope, contentment, perseverance and victory. All of these things happen because of suffering.
