Text: Romans 1:16-21. “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.

So they are without excuse,”[…]

Man was created to depend on God

The ideal situation we discussed yesterday is badly overthrown in today’s reading. The key actors in this tragedy are: God, the serpent, Adam, Adam’s dear wife, Eve and the Ecosystem.

Text: Genesis 2:7-15. Like the Triune God is community, man was created to be in community/communion, in fellowship with God and with one another.
