Marriage: A Gift From Eden

Noey
Introduction.

Have you wondered why Satan approached Eve when he sought to drag humanity into sin? Genesis 3:6 says that Adam was "with" Eve, but it does not say exactly when he arrived. The fact that God tells Adam that his sin was to "listen to your wife" (Genesis 3:17), as opposed to listening to Satan, makes it clear to me that Adam was not present when Satan tempted Eve. What should we conclude? The original sin included, as a crucial part, an attack on marriage! The assault has not stopped. Today, we have a serious conflict between the secular morality of equality of ideas and marriage. We also have an unprecedented number of adults who never married, and we have terrible divorce statistics. Let's jump into our study of the Bible and see what God has to teach us about marriage!
