The Book of Genesis: The Dialogue of Descent

By Lance Moore in podcasts on Mar 15, 2020

At this stage, before the Fall, Adam and Eve had listened only to God. There were no
other voices; there were no other influences. Up until this point God has provided
everything Adam and Eve had needed and now in the Garden a test of their loyalty to
God arises. And their conscious decision to disobey God has disastrous consequences
on Adam and Eve, on their relationship with God, on all who will come from their seed
and on all of creation. Destruction, disaster and death enter upon the disobedience of
the first man and his wife.
