Genesis 2:1-25

1 With this the heavens and the earth were completed, including all of their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had completed the work he had been doing, so on the seventh day he stopped working on everything that he had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God stopped working on what he had been creating. 4 These are the records of how the heavens and the earth were created. On the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 no shrubs had yet grown in the fields of the earth and no vegetation had sprouted, because the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there ware no human beings to work the ground. 6 Instead, an underground stream would rise from the earth and water the surface of the ground. 7 So the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground, breathed life into his lungs, and the man became a living being. 8 The LORD God planted a garden in Eden, toward the East, where he placed the man whom he had formed. 9 The LORD God caused every tree that is both beautiful and suitable for food to spring up out of the ground. The tree of life was also in the middle of the garden, along with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 A river flows from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divides, becoming four branches. 11 The name of the first one is Pishon {— } it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 The gold of that land is pure; bdellium and onyx are also found there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. 14 The third river is named the Tigris; it flows to the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 The LORD God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden in order to have him work it and guard it. 16 The LORD God commanded the man: "You may freely eat from every tree of the garden, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, because you will certainly die during the day that you eat from it." 18 Later, the LORD God said, "It is not good for man to be alone. I will make for him a companion corresponding to him." 19 So after the LORD God formed from the ground every wild animal and every bird that flies, he brought each of them to the man to see what he would call it. Whatever the man called each living creature became its name. 20 The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds that fly, and to every wild animal, but there was not found for the man any companion corresponding to him, 21 so the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man. When the man was asleep, he took one of the man's ribs, closed up the flesh in its place, 22 formed the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman, and then brought her to the man. 23 Later, the man remarked, "This at last is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. This one shall be called 'Woman,' because she was taken from Man." 24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they will become one flesh. 25 Both the man and his wife were naked, yet they were unashamed.

4 He answered them, "Haven't you read that the one who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female' 5 and said, 'That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must never separate."

John 5:46-47

46 because if you believed Moses, you would believe me, since he wrote about me. 47 But if you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe my words?"

Romans 5:12-21

12 Just as sin entered the world through one man, and death resulted from sin, therefore everyone dies, because everyone has sinned. 13 Certainly sin was in the world before the law was given, but no record of sin is kept when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death ruled from the time of Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin in the same way Adam did when he disobeyed. He is a foreshadowing of the one who would come. 15 But God's free gift is not like Adam's offense. For if many people died as the result of one man's offense, how much more have God's grace and the free gift given through the kindness of one man, Jesus the Messiah, been showered on many people! 16 Nor can the free gift be compared to what came through the man who sinned. For the sentence that followed one man's offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift brought justification, even after many offenses. 17 For if, through one man, death ruled because of that man's offense, how much more will those who receive such overflowing grace and the gift of righteousness rule in life because of one man, Jesus the Messiah! 18 Consequently, just as one offense resulted in condemnation for everyone, so one act of righteousness results in justification and life for everyone. 19 For just as through one man's disobedience many people were made sinners, so also through one man's obedience many people will be made righteous. 20 Now the law crept in so that the offense would increase. But where sin increased, grace increased even more, 21 so that, just as sin ruled by bringing death, so also grace might rule by bringing justification that results in eternal life through Jesus the Messiah, our Lord.

Romans 1:20-27

20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible attributes {— } his eternal power and divine nature {— } have been understood and observed by what he made, so that people are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their senseless hearts were darkened. 22 Though claiming to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that looked like mortal human beings, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles. 24 For this reason, God delivered them to sexual impurity as they followed the lusts of their hearts and dishonored their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged God's truth for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason, God delivered them to degrading passions as their females exchanged their natural sexual function for one that is unnatural. 27 In the same way, their males also abandoned their natural sexual function toward females and burned with lust toward one another. Males committed indecent acts with males, and received within themselves the appropriate penalty for their perversion.

2 Peter 3:3-6

3 First of all you must understand this: In the last days mockers will come and, following their own desires, will ridicule us 4 by saying, "What happened to the Messiah's promise to return? Ever since our ancestors died, everything continues as it did from the beginning of creation." 5 But they deliberately ignore the fact that long ago the heavens existed and the earth was formed by God's word out of water and with water, 6 by which the world at that time was deluged with water and destroyed.

Hebrews 11:1-3
