Bible Dictionary: "Adam was the first
whom God created with intelligent
power to reason
a special spirit placed inside
which allows introspection:.Proverbs
20:27; Zechariah 7:12;
Adam was formed out of the
dust of the Earth.(and
hence his name),
and the Creator breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and gave
him dominion over all the lower creatures:.Genesis
1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of
the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping
thing that creepeth upon the earth."
2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground.(Ecclesiastes
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul."
He was placed after he was
created, in the Garden of Eden prepared for Adam and Eve to enjoy:.Genesis
2:8-15. He was to cultivate it and to enjoy its fruits under this one
2:17 "Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat
of it, for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.(verse
doesn't mean the same day he may eat it but means the time of his presence
on Earth, because Adam lived 930 years: Genesis
Adam and Eve were curious
of new things:.Ecclesiastes
Good to be interested in
new things, once you become aware of them, but curiosity can lead one into
big trouble when the desire to find out is so great that one risks losing
what he has in order to satisfy that curiosity. Better to be patient and
wait for the Creator to bring things into one's life to enjoy them, than
to be so curious that you have to overstep bounds, going hellbent
to satisfy a curiousity.
The first recorded act of
Adam was his giving names to the beasts of the field and the fowls of the
air, which the Creator brought to him for this:.Genesis
see that from the beginning that the Creator was enjoying a relationship
Thereafter the Lord caused
a deep sleep to fall upon him and while in an unconscious state, took one
of his ribs and closed up his flesh again and of this rib he made a woman
whom he presented to him when he awoke.
Adam received her as his
2:23 "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall
be called woman.(meaning
'weaker man'), because she was taken
out of man."
He called her
Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
Eve or 'life', 'living'
was the name given by Adam to his.woman.as
the original has it, because she was the mother of all living:.Genesis
3:20 "And Adam called his wife's.(original
Eve." Genesis 4:1 "And Adam knew.(had
his wife and she conceived
and bare Cain
and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD."
When she gave birth to her
first son, she said."I
have gotten a man from the Lord",.(Revised
have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.").thus
she welcomed Cain, realizing birth was a process the Creator had made to
make new life possible.
The account of her creation
is given in.Genesis
2:21,22 "And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and
he slept. And he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh instead thereof.("instead
in the original according to the most reliable translations).
And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman and
brought her unto the man."
The Creator could see that
it wasn't the best for man to be alone:.Genesis
2:18 "And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone. I will make him an help meet.(or,
'fitting and able to support').for
By creating for him a suitable
companion, the Creator gave sanction to monogamy.
He created Adam and Eve,
not Adam and Eve and Susan or Adam and Steve, but did allow polygamy.(more
than one female sexual partner one could be committed to and therefor take
care of her).in
the Old Testament:.Genesis
2:24, "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall
cleave unto his wife and
they shall be one flesh."
In the New Testament we are
totally free to live from our hearts and to learn what works to have an
ever increasing relationship with the Father in heaven. Heaven is
inside you and it's higher
consciousness that lifts you to that level of living.
Having more than one physical
women, for example or even one women with two men),.I
think, would require too much effort away from a relationship with
the Creator in order to have the increasing depth each physical relationship
would normally demand.
Too many women equals too
little time for spiritual concerns. So, where's the priority? would be
the question to answer. A quest
toward a deeper relationship with the Creator and also a deepening relationship
with one's partner, would seem to be the best for one hot
on the spiritual path and especially so in this busy day and age.
