One of the things I love about Providence Church is how engaged with the messages they always are.
Case in point, one of our members asked this after last weeks message on Adam and Eve's fall. I mentioned that A & E "were naked and knew no shame." The question was posed, "So, in your last sermon, were you saying there was no sexual desire before the Fall?"
This was my response...
Let me clarify. There was no perversion in their sexual desire. Adam was most definitely attracted to Eve, as his song clearly demonstrates. However, his desire was without sinfully selfish intent.
As I mentioned in the sermon, we cannot even begin to imagine what this is like. Our nature is so sullied with sin that we cannot even read that sentence without a perverted thought. Adam and Eve though did not know such perversion or lust. Their love and attraction was entirely pure.
