Part 3 - The Fall and the Restoration
Overview: The Rebellion of Man's Soul
The soul of man is not something that he has, it is who he is. The human soul is the person. In the soul are the emotions, consciousness, and will of man. God's design in creation was that man would cleave to God, finding in God all fullness. In cleaving to God, man is in his perfect state. In the fall, Adam and Eve sought to provide for themselves apart from God. They rebelled against God's provision and resources. They sought their provision using their own resources. This was a rebellion of their soul. In rebelling against God, Adam and Eve became separated from Him. In their separation, their poor and needy state immediately became apparent. Their souls became bankrupt.
