God took six days to create the universe and on the sixth day

God took six days to create the universe and on the sixth day, He created mankind. On the sixth day, God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). God created mankind from his own Image of good. He wanted them to be kind, loving and holy. God created Adam and Eve to populate the world with good people that followed the holy path He set for them. He created Adam from dust and asked him to take care of the Garden of Eden. “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it”( Genesis 2:15). God realized that Adam needed a partner in life, so He created Eve. Eve was created from Adam’s rib. “A part of man; She was created from Adam’s own Body” (Genesis 2:21-23) God wanted Adam and Eve to love and care for each other and the world. God’s ultimate goal was creating Humankind. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate the forbidden fruit. They were influenced by evil, but deep down they knew they were in the wrong. Eve’s temptation caused the world to be full of sin. Adam and Eve sinned, which makes us all sinners in today’s world. Every day, we commit a sin without even realizing. Gossiping, judging others, and even telling a white lie makes us sinners. The fall of humanity started with a simple “Do not eat from this tree.” They were asked to leave the Garden of Eden. The consequence of the sin is still around today. Eve was told by God “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children” (Genesis 3:16). Painful child birth is one of the consequences that women have to suffer with. Adam was told “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree from which I commanded you not to eat, Cursed is the ground because of you; through toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. Man was cursed to work hard for the rest of his life. Humans were created to have purpose in life. They were created to be superior to any other creature. To live a beautiful and holy life. God created Humans to have true meaning and follow His lead. God is the way of life. The life we live is not what God intended for us. He did not want the world to be full of sins and sorrow, but He was disobeyed by humans. We are suppose to put God’s words first and flourish from believing In him. Humans are emotional and sometimes our emotions can get the best of us. Our purpose in life was to follow God, but that is not the case in todays world. Human nature can mean a lot of things to different worldviews. An Atheistic does not believe in God, so pleasing Him does not mean anything. So, some might say that an atheist might not fully flourish in a spiritual level.
