The Destructive Effects of Sin


Destructive Effects of Sin

      創世紀 Genesis 3:1-24

Worldwide Outreach Teaching School


        Dr. Meiman Lai Saidi


Preface:  Session Truth by Bill Manning, he said that sin
robs us of the rich relationship we were created to have with God, others, and
creation. Adam and Eve were blaming and shaming that facing the consequences;
Life in the Garden of Eden must have been wonderful, yet Adam and Eve gave it
up for a moment of ill-considered gratification and disobedience to God brought
a severe penalty. This week's lesson exposes "
The Destructive Effects of Sin"

Scripture Reading創世紀
Genesis 3:1-9

  1. Now
    the serpent was more crafty
    than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the
    woman, "Did God really say, ''You must not eat from any tree in
    the garden''?"
  2. The
    woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in
    the garden,
  3. but
    God did say, ''You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the
    middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.''
  4. "You
    will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman.
  5. "For
    God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you
    will be like God, knowing good and evil."

  1. 耶和華 神所造的、惟有蛇比田野一切的活物更狡猾。蛇對女人說、 神豈是真說、不許你們喫園中所有樹上的果子麼。
  2. 女人對蛇說、園中樹上的果子我們可以喫.
  3. 惟有園當中那棵樹上的果子、 神曾說、你們不可喫、也不可摸、免得你們死。
  4. 蛇對女人說、你們不一定死、
  5. 因為 神知道、你們喫的日子眼睛就明亮了、你們便如 神能知道善惡。




  1. When the woman saw that the fruit of the
    tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for
    gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her
    husband, who was with her, and he ate it
  2. Then the eyes of both of them were opened,
    and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together
    and made coverings for themselves.
  3. Then the man and his wife heard the sound
    of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the
    day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
  4. But the LORD God called to the man,
    "Where are you?"


  1. 於是女人見那棵樹的果子好作食物、也悅人的眼目、且是可喜愛的、能使人有智慧、就摘下果子來喫了.又給他丈夫、他丈夫也喫了。
  2. 他們二人的眼睛就明亮了、纔知道自己是赤身露體、便拿無花果樹的葉子、為自己編作裙子。
  3. 天起了涼風、耶和華 神在園中行走。那人和他妻子聽見 神的聲音、就藏在園裡的樹木中、躲避耶和華 神的面。
  4. 耶和華 神呼喚那人、對他說、你在那裡。


A.     Look Where You Are:  看阿  你在那兒?
Genesis 3:1-9

                        The sin of
Adam and Eve
disobedience to God that they  have
done what God has expressly forbidden, they cannot bring themselves to face
Him. They were made to live in God's presence, but now they are fleeing from
Him in fear.  All that they find in their
hiding place is darkness, fear and fig leaves to cover themselves, but it is
impossible to hide from God.

                        God was drawn to
Adam and Eve not by a desire to punish them, nor by a need for satisfaction,
but by love. This same God sees us, and knows us, and loves us. And He comes to
our hiding places too.

                        Why should God
cry out such words, "Where are you (v. 9)?" if God knows everything? Because
question is not spoken for God's benefit but it was spoken for the benefit
of Adam and Eve; when God asked them, "Where are you?" He was saying, "Look
where you are! See where your sins have brought you." That question to face
up that had been brought on by their sins.

B. What
is This You Have Done?
你作的是甚麼事呢?  Genesis 3:10-13

  1. He answered, "I
    heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I

  1. 他說、我在園中聽見你的聲音、我就害怕、因為我赤身露體.我便藏了。




  1. And he said,
    "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree
    that I commanded you not to eat from?"
  2. The man said,
    "The woman you put here with me--she gave me some fruit from the
    tree, and I ate it."
  3. Then the LORD God
    said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman
    said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."


  1. 耶和華說、誰告訴你赤身露體呢、莫非你喫了我吩咐你不可喫的那樹上的果子麼。
  2. 那人說、你所賜給我、與我同居的女人、他把那樹上的果子給我、我就喫了。
  3. 耶和華 神對女人說、你作的是甚麼事呢。女人說、那蛇引誘我、我就喫了。

Adam was pointing
his finger at Eve and saying, "It was her fault!" 3:12.

            To Eve the Lord said, "What
is this you have done?" (3:13). And
Eve followed the example set by Adam. She said, "The serpent deceived me, and I
ate" (3:13b).

            Instead of
admitting her guilt, she blamed the serpent for what she had done.     All
of us have had the painful experience of being unjustly shamed.

C. Facing the Consequences
Genesis 3
14-24 你既作了這事、就必受咒詛、

Because You Have Done This:

  1. So the LORD God
    said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed
    are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will
    crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.
  2. And I will put
    enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and
    hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.

  1. 耶和華 神對蛇說、你既作了這事、就必受咒詛、比一切的牲畜野獸更甚、你必用肚子行走、終身喫土。
  2. 我又要叫你和女人彼此為仇、你的後裔和女人的後裔、也彼此為仇.女人的後裔要傷你的頭、你要傷他的腳跟。




  1. To the woman he
    said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with
    pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your
    husband, and he will rule over you."
  2. To Adam he said,
    "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about
    which I commanded you, ''You must not eat of it,'' "Cursed is the
    ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all
    the days of your life.
  3. It will produce
    thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the
  4. By the sweat of
    your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will
  5. Adam named his
    wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

  1. 又對女人說、我必多多加增你懷胎的苦楚、你生產兒女必多受苦楚.你必戀慕你丈夫、你丈夫必管轄你。
  2. 又對亞當說、你既聽從妻子的話、喫了我所吩咐你不可喫的那樹上的果子、地必為你的緣故受咒詛.你必終身勞苦、纔能從地裡得喫的。
  3. 地必給你長出荊棘和蒺藜來、你也要喫田間的菜蔬。
  4. 你必汗流滿面纔得糊口、直到你歸了土、因為你是從土而出的.你本是塵土、仍要歸於塵土。
  5. 亞當給他妻子起名叫夏娃、因為他是眾生之母。




  1. The LORD God made
    garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
  2. And the LORD God
    said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and
    evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also
    from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
  3. So the LORD God
    banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which
    he had been taken.
  4. After he drove
    the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden
    cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the
    way to the tree of life.

  1. 耶和華 神為亞當和他妻子用皮子作衣服、給他們穿。
  2. 耶和華 神說、那人已經與我們相似、能知道善惡.現在恐怕他伸手又摘生命樹的果子喫、就永遠活著.
  3. 耶和華 神便打發他出伊甸園去、耕種他所自出之土。
  4. 於是把他趕出去了.又在伊甸園的東邊安設lmn、和四面轉動發火焰的劍、要把守生命樹的道路。

Satan spoke to Eve through the serpent, he said, "You will not
certainly die" (Genesis 3:4), for God's judgment against Adam and Eve was the
certainty of death (3:19b). It was Jesus who said, "When [the devil] lies, he
speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:44).

In the Garden of Eden, God announced that a day will come when the
offspring of woman will crush the serpent's head (Genesis 3:15). This is a promise of Christ's
ultimate victory over Satan. Until that day comes, Satan remains our enemy.
He continues to lie and tempt humans to think that their way is better than
God's. The willfulness that rejects God's way is the very essence of sin, and
sin always has consequences.

As a consequence of her rebellion, the woman would experience anguish in
bearing and raising children. Sin would distort and impair her relationship
with her husband (3:16). God told
Adam that because of his sin, his toil to work the land and produce food
would be very difficult, and death would be unavoidable (3:17-19).

CONCLUSIONS: 結論:                                                              
is an expression of grace, it brings us to repent. It is quite
possible that believers are more familiar with God's anger than are unbelievers. The
Scriptures tell us, "The Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens
everyone he accepts as his son" (Hebrews 12:6).

God is the initiator創始主. He knows everything about us and
still loves us.

God gave Adam and Eve a second chance. The
same gracious love by which He saved Adam and Eve. "Give thanks to the Lord
for he is
love and never give up!


  1. After
    eating the forbidden fruit, what were the immediate consequences of
    their actions? ([1v. 7]. [2] [v. 8].)
  2. Adam
    and Eve felt shame and fear following their sin. Why does sin always
    bring feelings such as shame and fear?
  3. What
    does it mean to you that God does not force you into serving and obeying
    Him? Is Genesis 3 trying to tell us something about human nature and a
    problem that we all have with regard to self-sovereignty? If so, what do
    we need to do about it?
  4. Where
    do you see God's grace at work in this story?
  5. How
    we can stop the blame game and take ownership of our own actions?



1. Read 1st Corinthians 10:12, "if
you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don''t fall! 所以自己以為站得穩的、須要謹慎、免得跌倒。13  No temptation has seized you except what is
common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond
what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out
so that you can stand up under it.

MUSIC:  Assurance
of Victory
music by Dr. Meiman Lai Saidi
                             Words from 1 Corinthian 10:12-13

Remind yourselves that through Christ, we can have
victory over sin.
We need to walk faithfully with Christ.

1.      Ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and transform your life.

2.      Invite the Holy Spirit to take control of your life.

3.      Stay close to God by prayer, worship, and Bible study.

4.      Choose entertainment wisely.

5.      Get away from tempting situations immediately.

6.      Find a Christian friend to be an accountability partner.
