  1. In the beginning, the sin of Eden was the serpent taking away the relationship of the children of God from their Father. Father’s are what they do. They provide and protect. In many homes this is how they show affection and love. Take away a man’s way of doing that and he is left without anything to give. He feels he becomes irrelevant, and loses respect for himself. This is magnified greatly if there is no faith in the One that is Greater.
