In Genesis 1:26-27, God created man “in his own image”. This is further described in Genesis 2:7-8&15-25. In Genesis 3, Eve is deceived, Adam willingly partakes, and both are thrown out of the garden. Adam was not deceived; this is clearly stated in 1 Timothy 2:13-13. Romans 5 puts blame on Adam’s disobedience as the cause for man’s sin. 1 Timothy 3:1-13 gives the requirements for being a bishop or deacon. Joshua 1:8 commands God’s people to meditate on his word day and night. Again in 2 Timothy 2:14-18, Timothy is told to study so that he can be approved by God. The Spirit and the flesh are two different path one can choose, stated in Galatians 5:16-17.
The Bible is full of man’s freedom of choice and will. God wishes to be with those who wish to be with him.
