“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2: 16-17
In this passage we see that God gives a command to Adam and Eve, they may eat of every tree except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for if they did, they would die. What I want you to ask yourselves today is: what is it that we do not read right after God gives them that command? What we do not read is Adam questioning God’s commandment. Adam doesn’t ask God, “Why can’t we eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?” Why? Because Adam was clear that God was God, the sovereign and infinitely wise God creator of the whole universe. Adam knew that he could fully trust that what God told him was true and good for him.
Next, we see what Satan does, namely, he makes Eve question God’s word. Satan tells Eve, “Ye shall not surely die: for God knoweth that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3: 4-5). Will you not die? Surely God had said that they would die! But Eve questions God’s word and we read in the next verse,
What is it to be a bad shepherd?
The bad shepherd (bad leader) is concerned about taking care of himself and focuses his interest in seeing how he grows in fame, goods, position, security and uses the sheep as a pretext, without really caring about their integral condition. “He does not identify with them.
What will happen to pastors in adultery?
You may face the loss of your family and the rejection of your adult children. … Even if you do not lose your family, you will have to attend counseling, at first alone and then with your spouse, to rebuild your marriage and once again establish a foundation of trust.
What is obedience to my shepherds?
Its literal meaning is “to yield to oneself”.
In this case, it means to yield under the leaders of the church.
Questions for Christian pastors
The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 1:9 “…that there is nothing new under the sun.” (The American Bible). This can be applied to the strategies used by Satan throughout the centuries. Satan’s most effective and oldest strategy is found in Genesis 3:1-5.
But the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made; and he said unto the woman, Because God hath said unto you, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden shall ye eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die;5 but God knoweth that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil. Reina Valera 1960 (RVR 1960)
But his strategy does not end there; to close with a flourish, the Devil offers a new “revelation” that has nothing at all to do with what God has established as truth; the devil told Eve, “but God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
What does the Bible say a pastor should be like?
The good shepherd has to be willing to listen, encourage and accompany others on this journey of faith. Being clear that this is our task and asking God to help us to love and guide others will help us to be better shepherds.
What does pastor mean in the Bible?

How does the Bible help us to enjoy our daily life?
I agree with everything proposed by the author, who mentions that reading the Bible makes us wiser; it helps us overcome the temptations we face every day; it brings us peace and is a guide for life; it helps us to be aware of our relationship with God; it teaches us history and makes us …
Obey the shepherd bible
Obey your shepherds (Explanation of Hebrews 13:17)Hebrews 13:17 “Obey your shepherds, and submit yourselves unto them: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not grumbling, because it is not profitable unto you.”
(You may also be interested in: The doctrine of Balaam)This exegetical study focuses on the Greek translation, peitho , in Hebrews 13:17. The word is always translated as “obey” in the different translations. Due to a lack of understanding of the expression “obey your shepherds”, and of the importance of the meaning behind this word, it has led many to blind obedience to the ministry and to wrongly assert their authority over the saints.
Many times this verse is taken out of context, which allows many to abuse their authority in the gospel unchallenged. I do not believe this is always intentional, but stems from a misunderstanding of the Greek behind the English word “obey” in saying obey your pastors.
What can light a fire and is full of deadly poison?
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of wickedness. … 8 But no man can tame the tongue, which is an evil that cannot be restrained, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless God and the Father, and with it we love men, who are made in the likeness of God.
What is obedience and its characteristics?
To obey implies, in varying degrees, the subordination of the will to an authority, the compliance with an instruction, the fulfillment of a demand or the abstention from something that it prohibits. …
1 Let every soul be subject to the higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that are, by God are ordained. 2 Therefore, whoever opposes the authority, resists what is ordained by God; and those who resist, bring bcondemnation upon themselves.

As much as God is love, he is also just, true, merciful, Holy, etc, these are his attributes, you must understand this first to understand that he also has wrath (but Holy) Psalms 5;5 /Psalms 7;11/Psalms 60;1/ and some of the prophets speak of this wrath.
God loves the sinner and hates sin. But we all sin sometime because we are imperfect beings, the important thing is to repent of that and know that God is so merciful that he forgives us. Greetings 🙂
