PASTOR WRINKLES: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES PT. 4: We have lost our rest.
Original Post follows.
When Adam and Eve sinned, what did they lose? What have we failed to regain? Why were they suddenly ashamed?
In PASTOR WRINKLES: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES PT. 1 and PASTOR WRINKLES: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES PT. 2, joseph elon lillie does what a Bible expositor is supposed to do. He finds the words to explain a concept in the Bible that would otherwise leave us puzzled.
We don’t spend much time thinking about the fall from grace that happened in the Garden of Eden. Few people, maybe none of us, really understand just how much fell apart in those moments when Eve ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Some people don’t even realize we have lost anything at all. They consider the world a thing of beauty that is getting better and better, but the truth is, that mind-set denies reality and shows no understanding of what sin has done to mankind, to our world and to the very fabric of reality itself.
