Eve not excused for being deceived

After Adam and Eve sinned, the Lord came looking for them in the garden. In his conversation with the two, he asked Eve what she had done. She tried blaming the serpent.

Brotherhood Website for Young Women

I hope you will visit and support the new website, For Christian Girls. Their mission is that young women in the church can receive teaching, encouragement and a forum for their special needs. I am looking forward to being a small part of this work. My first article is up and entitled, Women are Treasures. It discusses the beautiful creation of the first man and woman and how God gave her as a gift to Adam. Accordingly, she should be respected and honored and should walk with pride and humility before her Creator.

See you at the site! Leave a comment and encourage this new work.
