In the beginning we were called “him”

In the beginning  we were called “him” and we were called “Adam”,…why? Genesis 2:7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” We were called “him” because our soul was the primary part of us and our body was second. Since God is the Father of our soul, and our souls were primary, we also were called “him”. Today our bodies are first because of lust and adultery with a little tiny soul left behind long ago for the pleasures that sin offers. Eve was the mother of “all living souls” “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living”. (Genesis 3:20).

Hence, in Genesis, there is a male version and a female version of man’s story of God’s separation of the genders. The fact is that “we” were both there! We were one in the beginning and we are once again “one in our family”. We are partners! Family is forever! (Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6)
