Genesis Study Part 5

May 11, 2018

Genesis Study Part 5, episode 11.

We finish up the Genesis 1-3 narrative looking at Adam and Eve being blocked from entering the Garden of Eden and therefore access to the Tree of Life. Why would God do this? Is He just mad and punishing them? We also take a look at what this story tells us about a very important word in all of scripture – sin. What is sin? How is it related to worship and idolatry? And, does this story in Genesis say anything about what is often discussed as “original sin”?

Did Augustine Corrupt the Church with Gnostic Doctrine?

(I don’t know anything in particular about the person presenting this video and since I haven’t acquainted myself with his full teachings I am not able to recommend just anything he teaches. HOWEVER, having read through much early church literature and having studied church history, his findings in this video are correct.)
