ADAM and his wife Eve were real people, as Christ and others in the New Testament referred to them. If we do not believe in Adam and Eve then all we have left to believe is that we came from animals (See EVOLUTION, see MAN).

“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and…made he a woman….” (Genesis 2:21-22) This taking of Adam’s “rib”, could not be theistic evolution (the belief that God used evolution to create mankind). The Bible tells us in Genesis 1:31, that this took place between the “evening and the morning” of the sixth day. This gives no time for the eons necessary for evolution. Christ said, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female….” (Matthew 19:4) Christ did not believe that mankind started from a single cell, but there were two sexes, “male and female”, from the “beginning”, which is in reference to Genesis, Chapter One. If you cannot believe the foundation of the Bible (Genesis Chapter One), then everything else will fall! What is your self worth if you are a product of chance mutations? And, by comparison, what is your self worth if you were made “in the image of God”?
In the Bible, adultery and fornication are not one and the same, but are referred to in the Scriptures as two different acts. (See Mark 17:21) Adultery is extramarital sex, with someone other than your own wife or husband. "Thou shalt not commit adultery." Exodus 20:14) Fornication is sex before marriage, and youth are to flee from it. (See II Timothy 2:22) There are many young men who say, "I love you" to their girl friend, but do not "love" her enough to marry her when she becomes pregnant. Moms and dads need to have serious talks with their teenagers about this subject!
Whores increase sins among men. (See Proverbs 23:26-27 and Deuteronomy 23:17) But God blesses the relationship between a husband and wife in marriage. “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4, see MARRIAGE, see FORNICATION)
