East of Eden
Dr. Tony Chute, Lead Pastor
Overview: Adam and Eve’s attempt to cover their sins and hide from the Lord proves to be futile as they are called to account for their actions. It is immediately clear that neither will admit their fault; instead, they shift the blame elsewhere. Nevertheless, God pronounces judgment beginning with the serpent, who will be cursed and crushed; continuing to the woman who will experience hurt and heartache; and concluding with the man who will suffer from fatigue and frustration. The first couple is then banished from the garden with no opportunity to return. And yet, despite their reversal of fortune, they are called to live in the hope that the Lord who has pronounced a curse upon their world will take that curse upon Himself for their complete redemption.
