UNITY IN CREATION - By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Genesis 2:18, 21-24

Human reason and philosophy claim conviction of the  value of unity. "In unity there is strength." "We hang  together, or we'll hang separately." "United, we stand;  divided, we fall." All these are axioms authored and embraced  by humankind. But it seems that attainment of this idealistic  and commendable goal remains ever beyond reach.

God, on the other hand, is able to engender and preserve  perfect unification under His own plan and on His own terms.  He created a perfect environment. He then created an  occupant to dwell within that environment-a guileless being  destined to live an idyllic existence in a sylvan climate. Then  the finaltouch: "I will make him an help meet for him." This  conjunction epitomized all that is significant of a perfect  union. "And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and  flesh of my flesh."

But there was a condition involved. The two innocents  who were as one, were endowed with the ability to choose  between right and wrong; and therein lies a tale! One  stipulation , and one only, God set down: "Of the tree of the  knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the  day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis  2:17)·

The rest is history! Adam did the one thing that could  displease God; he ate the forbidden fruit and destroyed the  perfection of the man-God relationship under the  Dispensation of Innocence. The flawless unity was marred by  separation, and man's futile struggles had begun to form a  continuous history of self-defeat.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
