Adam and Eve driven out from the paradise

Updated on November 6, 2011

Why humans suffer today

The start for humans was exceptional and wonderful! Perfect bodies and minds living in perfect surroundings! The beginning was just the way God had planned it.

See my hub about the start in Eden.

The earth is far from a paradise today, on the contrary, we suffer more than ever.Instead of everlasting life and happiness, we have war, famine, crime and pollution that is on the verge to exterminate us.

So what went wrong? Why were Adam and Eve driven out from their home in Eden?

Adam & Eve driven out of Paradise (Engraving based on a picture by Raphael d`Urbino).

So what does the Bible say about the event?

"Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God say, “You shall not eat from any tree in the garden”?’ The woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; but God said, “You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.” ’ But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not die; for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate."

What went wrong?

Now, let us examine what really took place here. First- Eve was alone when the serpent approached her. She was new on earth compared to Adam. Her husband had lived much longer and even gave names to all the animals. So to talk to the newcomer was a smart move.

Then we all know that snakes cannot speak. Not then and not now, they have no organ to create talk. Did Eve know this? Maybe not, so she listened to what the serpent had to say.

Thirdly, behind the snake was an invisible angel that the Bible calls Satan or Devil. He lied about God, tricked Eve into believing that God withheld something good for them. She swallowed the bait and ate from the fruit.

(The Bible does not say that it was an apple either)

If you had been there

What would you have done?

The sad event

It could have been stopped

If Eve was fooled so was Adam not. The Bible says in First Timothy 2:14 ....and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.

So if Adam had said NO to the woman, everyting might have been ok. But he ate too, choosing to do so. A perfect mind chose to say no to the guidance of his Father the Creator.

Now they were put out of Eden. God gave them fur clothes and they had to live a life of hard work and problems. They had many children, both boys and girls. We know the names of three: Cain, Abel and Seth. Adam became 940 years old and they produced many boys and girls that also became parents and grandparents. For the sake of these children - including us - God decided to help humans. To prove that a perfect man CAN choose God's ruler ship and be obedience, he sent his beloved son Jesus Christ to prove this.So what one man ADAM could destroy, one man JESUS could buy back.
