Adam & Eve Sin and Concequeces

We are moving right along in our study of Genesis.  The KIDDOS are enjoying Exploring the Book of Genesis.  This week we will be learning about Adam and Eve's SIN and the consequences of their sin.  

This is our DO YOU KNOW? wall.  In my opinion when the KIDDOS can answer these Who? What? When? Where? Where? Why? and How is this important to me? questions then they have a real grasp on the lesson.  

We have a new card to add to our GOD'S AWESOME PLAN FOR MAN timeline.

We have a new word for our WORD WALL.  I want the KIDDOS to understand the meaning of the word SLY.    Since I will be using this word during the story as a description of the serpent.  

The KIDDOS memory verse is James 4:19.  We will sing it to the tune:  "Ten Little Indians."

The KIDDOS  TAKE HOME project is this spiral serpent. They will color it, cut it out, add a tongue and an eye.  

The KIDDOS Review Game is simple.  They will get to PICK a piece of fruit from the tree...and then answer the question.  

I purchased the fruit at Hobby Lobby a LOOONG time ago.  I made the tree by printing out a poster size clipart from Printmaster.  I then printed out questions on sticker paper and attached the questions to the various fruits. The fruit is attached to the tree with Velcro dots.    

Oh, that snake---it is a PET toy and came from Dollar Tree.  I have had it for a long, I do not know if they still have them there or not....I will try to check and see if they still have them the next time I am at Dollar Tree. 

 I enjoy having items for the KIDDOS to place in our GOD AWESOME PLAN boxes....This week they will be adding a snake....This way when we REVIEW the book of Genesis---when I get the snake out they will be able to tell me WHAT event the snake represents.  Of course, I will teach them that it represent the FALL of ADAM and EVE...The CONSEQUENCES of SIN... and a WARNING of SATAN'S SLYNESS.  

Next week will be our REVIEW week.    The KIDDOS will be doing this activity to add to their EXPLORER JOURNAL.    They will color the picture, add the SUN and FLOWER stickers and the SERPENT in the tree.    The KIDDOS will get to choose their FLOWERS and the color of their serpent. 

I hope you can see the 3D flower sticker and sun.  I think the KIDDOS will LOVE making these.  

This is a SAD lesson for me to teach...however, there are so many important LESSONS for the KIDDOS to learn.  They  must learn to OBEY GOD.  They must learn that GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING.  They must learn that LYING never solves anything. They must learn that BLAMING others is NOT acceptable.   They must learn that SIN has CONSEQUENCES.  My prayer is they will learn and apply these concepts.  




  1. Love the spiral serpent. Do you have a printable for it?


    Some theologians believe that all men are born with the guilt of Adam's sin. They believe all men are guilty of original sin and therefore are totally depraved at birth. They believe infants need to be forgiven for Adam's sin.

    1. There no mention of original sin in Scripture.
    2. There no Scripture that speaks of baptizing infants to wash away the guilt of Adam's sin.
    3. There is no Biblical reference of any infant nor of any adult being guilty of inherited sin.


    Matthew 18:2-3 And Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.(NKJV)

    Was Jesus saying you have to be totally depraved like theses little children to enter the kingdom of heaven?

    Jesus was not baptizing infants and little children for the forgiveness of original sin.

    John the Baptists was baptizing adults for the forgiveness of sins, after they repented. Infants and little children have no sin for which they need to repent. Even adults cannot repent for the sin of Adam and Eve.

    There were no denominational churches baptizing infants and little children while Jesus walked the earth, yet Jesus said become as little children to enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Original sin inherited from Adam is a doctrine invented by men.

    Men are guilty of the sin they themselves commit.

    Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (NKJV)

    Men are sinners because they sin, not because Adam sinned.

    James 2:9-11 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by law as transgressors......(NKJV)

    When men transgress God's law they are guilty of sin. What law do infants break by being born? Infants are not transgressors of God's law. Infants are not sinners nor are they guilty of Adam's transgression.

    1 John 3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. (NKJV)

    Sin is committed. Sin is not inherited.

    James 1:14-15 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. (NKJV)

    Are infants tempted in their mothers womb and sin before they are born? Of course not. Sin is committed by those capable of understanding right from wrong. Sin is committed by those who understand they are sinning against God.

    John 8:34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.(NKJV)

    Jesus did not say children are a slave to sin because they are guilty of original sin.

    Jesus did not say you need to be baptized as infants so original sin can be washed away.

    If men spend eternity in hell it will be because of unrepentant, unforgiven sins they have committed.

    Not one person will go to hell because of the sin Adam committed.

    The doctrine of original sin and the total depravity of man is man-made doctrine.


  3. I have never had a difficult time in believing that I was born with sin. I did not have to be taught to lie, steal, cheat or to be selfish. I have had to fight these traits from the time I remember. I never had to teach my children to be "bad", but I did need to mold them into the likeness of Christ as best as I could. I enjoyed all the thought that you put into your response. K

  4. Do you have a printable for the spiral snake? I love that! Thanks! Sarah

  5. Where did you find the coloring page?

  6. I'm interested in the spiral snake, as well. Any replies??

  7. Please, share the snake craft with the bible verse on it!
