The image depicts the error of Adam and Eve hiding from GOD in the Garden of Eden.

 

Today, reply is on the first human pair (Adam), gender, and human reproduction. At their creation, Adam was like the angels, neither mortal nor immortal, and had duration as an expression of divine prerogative (only GOD exists as immortal). The practice and process of human sexuality when focused according to divine intent centers on the reproduction of mankind as a material organism created by GOD that displays the properties of both flesh and spirit. Through sexual intercourse, joining, and the fertilization of the female seed, a child having life essence from GOD can be formed who will display characteristics and traits from both their male and female parent. It is written: Genesis 1: 27-28, King James Version (KJV): 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

what do you think about the creation of adam and eve?

at the time we were discussing mortal and venial sin in religion class when my teacher asked for examples of these sins. my classmate, stood up and said homosexuality. my teacher told him that homosexuality isn’t a sin, and my classmate cannot argue with the fact that adam was made a man and eve was made a woman, therefore there are only two sexes. teacher told us that we cannot claim that they are man and woman because they were immortal, and so they have no gender whatsoever. opinions?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 5: 6-14, KJV)

Anonymous”, existence and life are expressions of divine will. There are only two sexes that appear through the Creation of GOD, yet, there are many expressions of human sexuality generated by self-will within mankind, and the operations of flesh. Mature Christian believers do not rely on academic and secular discussions of Creation, the character and nature of mankind, or the operations and process of sin. There are multiple definitions, meanings, standards and values that should be in place that are aspects of sacred knowledge, only. For example, GOD is a spirit who appears to created beings and living creatures as active presence. The living mistakenly use finite human tools (e.g., intellect; language; logic; science) that understate the awesome dominion, personhood, and sovereignty of the divine fullness (we also say, Deity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Divinity may exist within the consciousness and self-will (willpower) of the living while remaining diffuse (we also say, limitless; without material form and measurable boundaries; outside the frameworks of time and space). Divinity endures as immortal, incorruptible, and invisible, and has made themselves knowable, known, accessible, and approachable. The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of sacred law, the Lawgiver, and the entire universe appearing through divine order. Sin is a transgression of sacred law that results in imbalance (iniquity), and the corruption of all divine order throughout the universe. The first pair (GOD called them both Adam) were deliberately male and female to populate the Garden of Eden through sexual joining in a manner similar to what was to be used among the animals. Eternal purpose and gender roles were in place at the time of Adam’s transgression; and disobedience by the pair resulted in the loss of life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; word) that had been imparted from the makeup of GOD. The divine sanctions for correction and punishment that were declared and stated as aspects of the law as first given to mankind included continuing as subject to death (i.e., mortality; the state of sleep endured by the male while the female was fashioned from one of his ribs). Visible results from the transgression of Adam include a gradual erosion of mankind’s endowment of spirit substance that resulted in exaggerations of appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, sexual cravings), sensation (e.g., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), and the features of emotion/mind (e.g., anger, fear, imagination, recall). Through the ministry on earth of divinity appearing in flesh (we say, the Incarnation), Jesus Christ has established a new creation providing forgiveness for sin, a reconciliation of the Father to mankind, and new life for those in flesh by means of the resurrection of Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) 1st Timothy 2: 13-15, King James Version (KJV): 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

(2.) Romans 5: 17-19, KJV: 17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

(3.) Romans 8: 5-9, KJV: 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMPENVk1AG4.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
