Title: The Origin of sin and its effects


1
The Origin of sin and its effects
  • The Bible says death is the consequence of sin,
    and all have sinned. This study will look at the
    origin of sin through the story of Adam, Eve and
    the serpent. We will also explore a vital
    question Who is responsible when you sin you
    or some supernatural tailed/horned being called
    satan

2
Who is responsible for your sin? You and you
alone!
  • Let no one being tempted say, I am tempted from
    God. For God is not tempted by evil, and He
    tempts no one. But each one is tempted by his own
    lusts, being drawn out and being seduced by them.
    Then having conceived lust brings forth sin. And
    sin being fully formed brings forth death. - Jam
    113-15

3
Lets start from the very beginning
  • The serpent that tempted Eve and brought sin into
    the world was
  • created by God and
  • a mere animal
  • more subtle than other animals
  • Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of
    the field which the LORD God had made. Gen 31

4
The Beginning
  • Was the creation of the Serpent
  • Good?
  • Bad?
  • It was Good because
  • and God saw that it was good - Gen 14, 10, 12,
    18, 21, 25, 31
  • But,
  • What Good did it bring?

5
Who is man? Created in the Image of God
  • And God made man in his image, in the image of
    God he made him male and female he made them.
    Gen 127, Jam 38-9, Gen_96 1Cor 117

6
Who is man? Created With Free Will
  • Potential to Glorify Him or Dishonor him
  • The Potential to sin and with the potential to
    obey
  • Potential to walk in Light or Darkness

7
Freewill is not evil It is Gods Gift to mankind
  • God gave man the ability to build
  • Man can choose to build houses, temples or bombs
  • God gave man the ability to see
  • Man can choose to see to go places, see his
    children play, help other or use his eyes to lust
  • God gave man the ability to do work
  • Man can use the same hand to pray, earn his
    living or stab his neighbour

8
Freewill is not evil It is Gods Gift to mankind
  • God gave man the ability to speak
  • With it we give praise to our Lord and Father
    and with it we put a curse on men who are made in
    God's image. Jam 39
  • To bring Glory to God We need to understand
  • Light as opposite of darkness
  • Peace as opposite of conflict
  • Justice as opposite of injustice

9
Man has a choice to Obey God or Disobey God
  • God gave Adam a commandment
  • But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the
    garden, God has said, If you take of it or put
    your hands on it, death will come to you. Gen
    33
  • Obedience is only possible if disobedience is
    also possible

10
Man has a choice to Obey God or Disobey God
  • Eve choose to use her eyes lustfully
  • And when the woman saw that the tree was good for
    food, and a delight to the eyes, and to be
    desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit,
    and gave it to her husband. Gen 36
  • God had given Eve eyes
  • Eve misused it
  • Later Adam also misused it

11
God created man to glorify God of his own
freewill
  • This only have I seen, that God made men upright,
    but they have been searching out all sorts of
    inventions. Ecc 729
  • Each one is responsible for his own good actions
    and sin
  • Let no one being tempted say, I am tempted from
    God. For God is not tempted by evil, and He
    tempts no one. But each one is tempted by his own
    lusts, being drawn out and being seduced by them.
    Then having conceived lust brings forth sin. And
    sin being fully formed brings forth death. - Jam
    113-15

12
Who was the Serpent?
  • The serpent was created cunning
  • The Serpent was not created cursed
  • Till the Point of Sin it walked And talked with
    Adam and Eve
  • It was cursed only after Adam and Eve sinned

through the curse it received

14
The Curses on the Serpent Who was the Serpent?
What was its Significance?
  • Crawling
  • Keep your minds on things that are above, not on
    things that are on the earth. Col 32
  • Eat Dust ( Death)
  • Phi 319 Their destiny is destruction, their god
    is their belly, and their glory is in their
    shame. Their minds are set on worldly things.
  • Serpent thinking is CURSED
  • That is why the mind that is set on the flesh is
    hostile toward God. For it refuses to submit to
    the authority of God's law because it is
    powerless to do so. Indeed, those who are under
    the control of the flesh cannot please God. Rom
    87,8

The Serpent signifies the use of freewill to do
evil (sin)
15

  • The literal Serpent is not Important
  • Snakes today are just like any other animal,
    biologically they are not cursed, but only
    metaphorically
  • The Curse is applicable to people
  • who think like the serpent (fleshly)
  • And walk not in the spirit
  • The Serpent represented the Rebellious/Disbelievin
    g Mind of Eve and later Adam

    evil that leads to sin

  • Who is the seed of the serpent?
  • Jesus identified them as evil men who gratify sin
  • Offspring of vipers! How can you, being evil,
    speak good things? For out of the abundance of
    the heart the mouth speaks.
  • The good man out of the good treasure of the
    heart puts forth good things. And the evil man
    out of the evil treasure puts forth evil things.
    Mat 1234-35

17

    failed to do)

    sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in
    every respect has been tempted as we are, yet
    without sin. Heb 415

18
Who is satan?
  • A survey of few passages in the old testament
    containing the word satan

19
The Hebrew meaning and usage of the word satan
  • From Strongs Dictionary
  • Hebrew saw-tawn
  • an opponent, adversary, withstand.
  • The word just means enemy or foe and it could be
    used either as a good or bad foe depending on the
    context

20
Balaam and Satan
  • The Hebrew word satan occurs first in Num 2222
    and is translated as adversary (AV), foe, etc.
  • And God's anger was kindled because he went and
    the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an
    adversary (satan) against him. Now he was riding
    upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.
    And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in
    the way, and his sword drawn in his hand and the
    ass turned aside out of the way, and went into
    the field and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her
    into the way. Num 2222-23

21
Balaam and Satan
  • Who is referred to as satan in the above passage?
  • The angel of God
  • Why?
  • Because Balaam opposed Gods will, God opposed
    Balaam by his Angel
  • Does satan here have a tail or horns or is evil?
  • No!

Notice also how the Donkey A mere animal speaks
like the serpent
22
David is satan to Achish
  • The next time we see the Hebrew word satan used
    is in 1Sa 294
  • And the princes of the Philistines were wroth
    with him and the princes of the Philistines said
    unto him, Make this fellow return, that he may go
    again to his place which thou hast appointed him,
    and let him not go down with us to battle, lest
    in the battle he be an adversary (Hebrew word
    satan) to us for wherewith should he reconcile
    himself unto his master? should it not be with
    the heads of these men?

23
Solomons satan (enemy)Rezon
  • And God stirred him up another adversary, Rezon
    the son of Eliadah, which fled from his lord
    Hadadezer king of Zobah And he gathered men unto
    him, and became captain over a band, when David
    slew them of Zobah and they went to Damascus,
    and dwelt therein, and reigned in Damascus. And
    he was an adversary to Israel all the days of
    Solomon, beside the mischief that Hadad did and
    he abhorred Israel, and reigned over Syria. 1Ki
    1123-25

24
LORD God as satan
  • And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked
    David to number Israel. And David said to Joab
    and to the rulers of the people, Go, number
    Israel from Beersheba even to Dan and bring the
    number of them to me, that I may know it. 1Ch
    211-2
  • And again the anger of the LORD was kindled
    against Israel, and he moved David against them
    to say, Go, number Israel and Judah. For the king
    said to Joab the captain of the host, which was
    with him, Go now through all the tribes of
    Israel, from Dan even to Beersheba, and number ye
    the people, that I may know the number of the
    people. 2Sa 241-2

25
Satan means
  • Adversary / Enemy /Opposition
  • It is not responsible for human sin
  • Satan or the enemy can be good or bad

The Bible does not draw a picture of satan with
tail and horn. It is purely human imagination
26
Summary We are responsible for our own sins!
  • Jesus taught sin is from within
  • For it is from within, from the human heart, that
    evil thoughts come, as well as sexual immorality,
    stealing, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness,
    cheating, shameless lust, envy, slander,
    arrogance, and foolishness. All these things come
    from within and make a person unclean." Mar
    721-23
  • And sin deserves death
  • For the wages of sin is death Rom 623
