Example text

God was still walking and talking with man, even after sin entered the world and mankind was expelled from the Garden of Eden. He was not imputing sin or holding their trespasses against them. God was not treating them the way the Old Testament Law reveals sin should be treated. He was operating in love, mercy, and forgiveness. Still, God showed His disapproval of Cain's killing Abel and let Abel know what the consequences would be. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

And, as we harmonize the Old and New Testaments, we are going to see clearly — God is not schizophrenic! " The Word of God tells us clearly what God was doing. For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Romans 5:13 When we use the term "Law," we can be referring to all of the Old Testament, but the Law used in context of this scripture is more specific. When we say Law here, we are referring to the Mosaic Law, which includes the Ten Commandments, judgments, punishments, and all of the ordinances and ceremonial observances.

But He knew they didn't realize they were naked before they sinned. " To us, that may not look like a really good reason for Adam and Eve to hide themselves. But according to the Scripture, that's the only thing they recognized which made them run and hide from God. What was the big deal? I think the reason this is so important is because God wasn't naked. God was clothed. Did you know there is no reference to God or an angelic being in all of the Word of God where God or an angel is naked? They're always clothed!
