[M] The Fall

The lie of living for self...


First sin - Adam & Eve

The image was lost. Who they were created to be died. What was love became selfishness.

What died? - connectivity to God died - god unto himself - reduced to form - shadow - (:55)
What died? - identity & image lost - cut off from love - still loved but not grafted in - (1:03) 
Listening to another voice - apart from the voice of God - way that seems right to man - (1:28)
Listening to another voice - Satan made a disciple - reproduced - all men born into Adam - (:58)

Subdued rather than subduing - (:16)

Fallen Thinking - The way that seems right to a man

Through Adam, every man inherits a twisted, self-centered mindset/perspective - a mindset that is reinforced in the world by the Father's enemy - a mindset that is foreign to heaven. (The eye of "it's all about me"; thinking for you)  (The problem: man thinking for himself when he was designed for His image.)

Self-centeredness - "normal" - rights - sin consciousness - anger - frustration - Dan Mohler (:48)*
Self-centeredness - damage - fear -  low esteem - insecurity - lack of identity - (:18)

Reduced to living by senses - how you feel is who you are - (:29)
Reduced to living by senses - living by how it seems and feels - faith separates you from - (1:14)
Way that seems right - natural knowledge - reasoning - logic - (1:07)*
Way that seems right - human reasoning - common sense - pride ourselves on way we think - (:44)
Way that seems right - human reasoning - thinking became twisted after the fall - (:58)
Way that seems right - human reasoning - reasoning against truth - became that way at the fall - (:56)
Way that seems right - complicated thinking - doesn't give what talks you out of faith - (2:30)
Way that seems right - common sense - voice of stranger vs. voice of God - (1:06)
Way that seems right - voice of stranger sounds strange - doesn't sound like love - (3:04)
Way that seems right - always produces death - fruit shows where it comes from - (:46)
Judging others - 1st impressions - judgments - arrogance - repulsive people - (:46)*
Judging others - 1st impressions - alienated from God by the way our minds work - (:46)
Judging others - self-righteousness - god unto self - (1:48)
Homeschooled in the wrong home - need to be reschooled - in spirit of our minds - (:35)
Homeschooled in the wrong home - you say but I say - trained in a different wisdom - (:59)
Homeschooled in the wrong home - you say but I say - trained by a lie - (:51)
Homeschooled in the wrong home - you say but I say - we don't think like He thinks - (1:39)
Homeschooled in the wrong home - our thinking must change - (1:21)

Self-centered relationships - I love you. Do you love me? - it's still about me - (:58)
Self-centered relationships - I love you. Do you love me? - Adam & Eve cut off from love - (2:03) 1.4
Twisted emotions - the emotions you inherited from Adam - the eye of "all about me" - (3:17)
Twisted emotions - your response proves it's still all about you - way you see - He's in you to love them - (6:51)
Twisted emotions - anger, frustration, disappointment, fear - hinge on self-centeredness - (:43)
Twisted emotions - they come from a self-centered foundation - you thinking for you - (:53)
Suicide - it's my life - cutting off His life through you - (1:13)

Fallen living

Through Adam, every man is born into a life of insecurity & identity crisis.

Rat race - desperate search for esteem, honor, value - accepted in a crowd- Dan Mohler (:37)*
Rat race - search for identity, attention, affirmation, reputation - in not out - cool not weird - (:34)*

Muck & mire - children of Israel - Moses - slavery - building another's kingdom - mocking identity - (1:28) 
Muck & mire - Moses - Heb. 11 - (2:36)
Muck & mire - symbolic of sin - building another's kingdom - quote

But man was not created to live for self...
