  8. 4A. Problem of Disobeying God’s Design of Masculinity • Genesis 3:1-7 “hiding, cover up” • Genesis 3:12 – blaming, accusing • Genesis 3:17-19 – “to Adam he said … “ • Jeremiah 17:9 “heart is deceitful…” • Proverbs 4:12 “a way that seems right to a man, but its end … death”

  9. Closing • Just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, so death spread to all men because all sinned … much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many … therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men…” Romans 5:12, 15, 16

  10. I Corinthians 15:21-22,45“For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive … The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life giving spirit.”
