Bible Study Post #4 The Mistreatment of Eve

Genesis 3:16

  • Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Without the tree of knowledge Eve did not have autonomy, and did not know what she was doing was wrong, so it is wrong to punish her autonomous agent for it.

And enslaving half of everyone for one mistake, even assuming it was a major sin.  This is punishing daughters for what one single woman did.  It is like how God places entire lines into slavery for one single action – and one action that God himself set in place to happen?  Unless God wasn’t planning on having us experience earth?
