What specific sin did Adam and Eve commit?
Ubiquitous verbal abstraction (from men responsible for it — big and small) in the direction of spiritual knowledge, without specifics in that, leads humanity en masse through "wide gates" to a dead end of delusions and (very annoying) spiritual (and we could Live) death.
God offered our first parents a contract: You live by the rules that ensure your safety, and I, in turn, do everything to make your existence safe. Well, this is roughly simplified. A person who transgressed the commandment, thereby declared: “I don't want to, I want to live with my own mind, my own will.” God did not insist, retreated along with the” umbrella ” that had hitherto protected man from harm and man found himself one on one with the spring world. But since God was no longer behind man, nature does not recognize man's dominion and refuses to obey him (“thorns and thistles”).
Literally, Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, even though God told them not to. But the letter is not everything.
First, it was a matter of trust. Adam and Eve DID NOT TRUST God's words about what was good for them and what was bad for them. This is the most important aspect of their transgression.
Secondly, it happened… a mixture of good and evil. Eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil caused good and evil to mix up inside Adam and Eve.
And most importantly, the lack of desire for correction. God gave Adam and Eve a chance to repent. All they had to do was take responsibility for themselves. But they didn't – Adam started trying to put the blame on Eve and the God who created her, and Eve started putting the blame on the serpent, and again on the God who created the serpent.
You know the result.
– Discernment and Eternal Life
And a little earlier, the words of the serpent:
that's why they were angry
Disobedience to God. Roughly speaking, unbelief because they did not trust the words of God. That is why by faith we must accept the Sacrifice of Christ in order to be saved. It turns out that to believe that God is absolutely not important, the main thing is to believe God.
If you read the Bible carefully, you will notice that Adam and Eve sinned by eating the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This story is interpreted differently in the Bible. therefore, there is no single and specific reason. The serpent-tempter offered Eve to taste the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, but Eve did not agree, the serpent-tempter insisted; the woman tasted the fruit. On the one hand, there was already pure evil in Eden in the form of the serpent, on the other-this is Eve's test, which she failed.
In fact, the question is very necessary for understanding what happened after Adam and Eve sinned. And even
if you can read this biblical story of the exile in a children's Bible without digging deeply, but without understanding it, you may not later understand how to return there . Adam and Eve didn't understand! The sin for which the first people were expelled – they doubted what God said. (Spirit of unbelief)
2-disobeyed ( the spirit of resistance), i.e.E. They broke the Law, which consisted of only one commandment . But according to the law, failure to fulfill at least 1 commandment is equivalent to failure to fulfill the entire law. ( This was the basis for future laws that cannot be fulfilled, where the commandments are not 1, but 613 and more) And this will inevitably lead to death. For Adam and Eve, at first it was a spiritual death, when people disobeyed and lost the righteousness or Spirit of God that was in them . And since God has nothing to do with sin, Adam and Eve were banished from a place where there is no sin, but only God's grace and communion with the Father.
Today, people really want to connect with God, but they can't even understand what He is talking about.
But if you go back to the beginning, it becomes clear that in order to be united with God, you need to have one Spirit with God, as it was originally. By following the laws-this is impossible! Self-righteousness for God is like Soiled Clothing (Bible)
-Only through God's righteousness, which is given as a Gift from the One who has it.( With God)
…Take heed not to flaunt your righteousness, for otherwise you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven….
(Matthew 6 )
– How then?
“By faith! The Bible gives us a clear definition of Faith:
….So faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes from the word of God.
(Rom 10: 17)
So God is showing us the exact direction so that we don't go astray in understanding what Salvation is, who our Savior is, and how to receive the spirit that Adam and Eve lost, or in other words, receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit?
Blessings to all!
Disobedience. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was in Eden to test the faithfulness of the first people and the love of God. To our first parents, God gave clear and definite instructions regarding the tree of knowledge of good and evil. They were also fully informed about the fall of Satan and the dangers of listening to his words and following his advice.
God did not prevent them from eating the fruit of the forbidden tree. He gave them, as morally free beings, the opportunity to make a conscious choice: to believe His word, obey His commands and live forever, or to believe the tempter, transgress God's commands and doom themselves to destruction.
Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the forbidden tree together, and as the serpent's promised great wisdom, they gained an unknown knowledge of sin and a sense of guilt. Soon the radiance of the light of God's glory that had surrounded them disappeared, and now, with the loss of their Divine robes and the weight of guilt, they tried to cover their nakedness with something they had never felt before.
Adam and Eve chose to believe the words they thought came from the serpent, even though he showed them no love and did nothing for their happiness and well-being, while God took care of everything, including food and comfort.
There was abundance and beauty everywhere you looked, but even so, Eve was deceived by the serpent, who convinced her that there was “something” that could make them wise like God, and that “something” was hidden from them.
Instead of trusting God and relying entirely on Him, she dishonorably disregarded His great kindness and believed the words of Satan.
Satan exulted with joy. He had tempted her to distrust God, to doubt His wisdom, and to awaken an unhealthy desire to see into His incomprehensibly wise plans. In addition, thanks to her, he managed to bring about the fall of Adam, who, out of love for Eve, transgressed God's command and sinned with her.
The same sin that we are now committing when we come into this world: disobedience. The child, being born, first of all demonstrates disobedience, which we call whims. How often the absence of purposeful actions brings more benefits than the presence of perfect actions. You don't need to make any effort, you don't need to waste energy, time, emotions. Just give up the action and you'll get the most out of it.
The sin of unbelief to God through faith in the devil (snake), also the sin of disobedience when they disobeyed God and His commandments and broke it by eating the forbidden fruit.
I think it was a betrayal.
Satan was the first to betray God. Any rebellion is not disobedience, not childish curiosity, but a desire for personal power.
If this was such an innocent sin, as it is described in the literal interpretation, then why would God punish these people so harshly?
According to many people, Adam was a naive child, but why did God make him ruler over all the earth (Genesis 1: 26)?
Satan, too, was created the supreme Angel immediately, just as Adam was created the king of the earth.
So there can be no question of any naivety – Adam could know as much as we can not know today, with all today's discoveries.
Adam and Eve lost the Glory of God that covered them. What does this mean?
Fame is an integral part of Honor. Where there is Honor, there is Glory. Honor is honesty.
They lost their honor. How to lose your honor? It's not fair. Plus treacherously, secretly seizing God's power-betraying a Friend. God created Adam as a friend to Himself, not as a servant Angel.
Why did Adam hide from God? He was ashamed, but he did not want to admit to a secret betrayal, a conspiracy to seize the additional power of equality with God.
I don't know why and who needs answers to such questions… But I'll try to assume the following)! Original sin is irresponsibility. Because if a person cannot (due to mental retardation, let's call such a person an idiot, a fool or whatever), or does not want (due to moral degradation, let's call such a person a scoundrel, a scumbag or whatever) to bear responsibility, then any act becomes irresponsible, which means that this sin can be said to automatically generate all other sins. Of course, you can try to cure a fool, and re-educate a scumbag, but in practice it is a very difficult task even for today's science. Responsibility is first of all always an understanding of the consequences of actions. The world is complex and diverse, so sin , in my opinion, is an error, an error in understanding the real reality. Because 4 rules – 1. Don't give in to self-deception. 2. Do not give in to the forgery created by someone else's mind in your head. 3. Don't give in to bigotry. 4. Do not give in to mysticism, they are a compass for the human mind in realizing its own actions. And this compass is missing for many, alas… Adam. and Eve were not scoundrels or fools, but they were irresponsible in their actions-they did it behind their backs, on the sly, and then they also blamed all the responsibility of Adam on Eve, Eve on Satan. That is, in simple terms, they showed stupidity and meanness. You can show these qualities only in one case – in the case of irresponsibility (of course, the reasons may be different – ignorance, weak will, cowardice or cowardice, and much more), but initially only irresponsibility allows all this to happen. . Therefore, Adam and Eve sinned with original sin (he is always the first to be born), and after this sin there are others. If everything is God's will, then a lot of things change)
You will find a detailed answer to this and many other questions related to the Biblical Paradise in the book “Behind the mysterious curtain of the Biblical Paradise”.
To be more precise, a book has been published – “Behind the mysterious curtain of the biblical Paradise”, with a rare explanation of the events that took place in Paradise, in the time of Adam and Eve.
A very detailed and unusual, but also impressive – story, including about the sin that Adam and Eve sinned, with a detailed explanation of the reasons.
It impresses with the unusual rarity of the spiritual-the explanation of Biblical scenes in combination with human life, beyond – Paradise.
A lot of articles have been published about Paradise, but this is something special and I think it is the best.
I have never met a small one, and here there are so many Biblical and spiritual explanations, including explanations: about the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil + many and many – the rarest, etc.
Stir it up!
