Are We Under This Curse
Why are Christians considered under the curse God put on Adam and Eve due to sin? God through the scarifice of Jesus has delivered us from the curse of Sin and Death? Curse on Adam and Eve was in it, how can other parts be removed and not the male-female part when it was all part of the same curse?

Alan read it again in Genesis where God cursed the snake. Female part of curse women have pain in childbirth and husbands rule over them. Male part man will toil and bring forth crops by the sweat of his brow. Curse was due to sin and brought death to human kind and war between the snake and humankind( man bruise snakes head and snake mans heel). This is what I am refering to.

Alan the male-female part refers, I'm sure, to men having to work hard to produce food (it was previously provided for them) and women having pain in childbirth.

[Gal.3:13]: Everything in Echad/Gods recreation is subject to physical & spiritual death [separation from God], when satan through a serpent tricked Eve who influenced Adam into giving authority 'back' to satan by eating the forbidden fruit. Abels death quickly revealed death's source, Lucifer 'after' his revolt against Echad/God, when Lucifer ruled earth from the same garden in Eden. Christians die physically? Yes! Spiritually? No [(Rom.8:18-'22', I Cor.15:38-50) Christ's Shed Blood]!

Adam/Eve were without sin until they took of what was offered by Satan/serpent. God had told Adam/Eve not to partake. That act by them allowed sin & death to enter mankind. Jesus did NOT remove that sin and death. He died & arose to grant pardon to those who would accept it. His blood cleanses us only if we are chosen to bathe in it. Many will not. And will die body & Spirit because of not accepting Jesus's pardon. ONLY God & that which is of God is eternal. All else is finite and will be obliterated.

We suffer for our own sins, ot the sins of others. The Lord created the earth and said it was good. We suffer and must repent for our sins, not Adams. Through one man sin enter the world yes, thus we were offered the potential to sin, and mostly do.

Genesis 2:16-17 here God gave man permission to eat from every tree in Garden except commanded him not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The tree of life was permitted to man to eat until the fall when God put man from the Garden, Genesis 3:22, isn't that the death, of flesh, which came upon humankind due to sin and so even with Christs scarifice the flesh still dies, but we receive a glorified body to live forever in, if saved, but before sinned, body would have lived forever too?

Physical death Is not a curse It is an enevitability, or how else can we attain heaven. God does NOT curse. Spiritual Death is of our own Making & hence our own Fault, as God has given us the graces & sacraments to conquer Spiritual death & snares of satan.

It is because we have to deal with the physical curse and the spititual curse. Although Saved I still live in a body of death that lives just to die. That is the physical. Even the earth is under this curse. On the spiritual side I will never die because Christ died for me and in my place.
It is the spiritual side that rebels against the physical order and curse of things that God listed in Genesis because of the fall of mankind. When the spiritual side gets correct the physical side follows.

God told Adam if he ate the fruit he would die. (curse) This did not happen for several hundred years, but it did happen. Jesus died to save the soul, not the body. the body is still under the curse. It will die, the soul never dies. If born again, soul goes to heaven, if not, soul goes to hell.

Alan, God cursed Adam and Eve because of their sin. Death came upon humankind,(Male-Female part)pain in child birth,husband have power over wife, plow fields in sweat of brow etc. I'm asking why do people think Jesus death removed Curse of Sin and death, plus take away handwriting of ordinances which was against us, but not the entire curse. He gave all of curse at one time doesn't add up he would remove part of it, and leave part when it was all same curse.

"how can other parts be removed and not the male-female part when it was all part of the same curse?" This is simply because many wish to pick and choose which bits of the O.T. are still applicable today so that they can adjust their lives accordingly. If we don't like it it doesn't apply today, if we do like it it still applies today. Of course doing that is a mockery. When we do that it makes us no better than some other religions who have manipulated the bible by adding or taking away.
