not to do evil
From the beginning, in the garden of Eden, satan, having been thrown out of heaven, sought to take over the rulership of the world. Satan deceived Eve and Adam, they succumbed to temptation, and lost the dominion that the Lord God had given them.
Adam was created by God as to have dominion over the earth. Dominion involves the government of God.
When the word “Adam” is used, it is not slighting Eve. The Lord God considered them one.
Genesis 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
They had a joint purpose under God as one.
The feminist, progressive, modernist movement would try to say that man has one purpose, and woman another, and that they are in competition. From the beginning it was not so.
God intended marriage to be a equal yoke, an equal purpose for each family, with one overall direction where everyone is “all in” to the same purpose, not going different directions and “hooking up” occasionally.
Satan came along and deceived Adam and Eve into disobeying God and Adam lost dominion. Satan became the “god of this world”. That led to governments that are atheistic such as communism and dictatorships. These are governments that kill opposition in order to stay in power. Socialism leads to communism.
The goal has been to take back the governing of the world from satan and place it back under God. The beginning history of the United States was people who formed a nation under God.
