OUR GOVERNMENT CHANGED – (That Day in Eden continued)

by Dr. Karen Colvin on July 27, 2018

in Word of the Week

That day in Eden, protection of the weaker ones became necessary. Human governments and authorities needed to be put in place. It was the day that we took on pride, greed, jealousy, and selfishness. We became creatures who would do anything to anyone to profit ourselves. The weaker one became vulnerable to all types of evil and would need protection from the stronger ones.

Under the government of the Godhead, everyone was safe. Every living thing could enjoy God’s creation without fear. We understood that the beauty of the earth, and all of its resources came from our heavenly Father. He would always love us and provide for us. He was the only authority that we needed. The family that God initially created with Adam and Eve was put in place to manage our social interactions with each other. This family provided a system to learn and to care for each other under the guidance of our heavenly Father. We looked to Him for  our understanding of the world. Our interactions with God and each other were peaceful and loving.


But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you [setting you on a firm foundation] and will protect and guard you from the evil one (2 Thess. 3:3 AMP).
