Summary
The world you and I live in is not the world God created it to be. I am not talking about dinosaurs. The story opens with God confronting chaos and disorder to bring order and beauty in creation. Humans are formed and appointed to participate in God's divine rule of the universe. As his representatives, humanity can choose to trust God for wisdom to rule, resulting in blessing for the entire world.

However, the humans choose to define good and bad on their own, which begins a destructive cycle that reintroduces chaos and disorder back into God's good world. Let us pick up in the story here beginning in Genesis 3.

Talking Points
The Failing Over the Fall; The Wise Snake; The Conversation of Temptation; How We Justify; The Curse of the Snake; Humans Create Disorder; Removal From the Model
