The sin of Adam and EveThe Bible says that God the Father and God the Mother created the heavens and the earth.

Then God [Elohim] said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)

In Genesis Chapter 1 which described the process of the Creation, God is referred to as ‘Elohim,’ the plural form. In addition, the plural pronoun ‘Us’ was used. If there were only one God, God should been referred to as the singular noun ‘El’ or ‘Eloah,’ and the singular pronoun ‘Me’ should been used. God the Creator is not only one. From the passage “Male and female were created in the image of God,” we can understand that there are two Gods: God the Father and God the Mother.

However, in other verse, it’s written that God ‘alone’ created the heavens and the earth.

I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself (Isaiah 44:24)

Why is it written that God ‘alone’ created the heavens and the earth in the book of Isaiah while it’s written that two Gods did in the book of Genesis? Is one of the two verses wrong? Or, is the Bible contradictory? No. God let us know the reason through Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, who were created in the image of God.

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

It’s obvious that Adam and Eve are two individuals, who existed as a man and a woman respectively. However, it’s written that Adam and Eve will be united and become one flesh. Therefore, in the Bible, it’s referred to as one man or Adam as the representative when mentioning Adam and Eve together.

Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come. But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man [Adam]… (Romans 5:14-15)

It was not just Adam alone who committed the sin of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Both Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge; moreover Eve did first. However, the Bible wrote the sin of the tree of the knowledge as that of one man. It’s because Adam and Eve are considered one, being united, and Adam is referred to as the representative. This shows the reason it’s written that God ‘alone’ created the heavens and the earth, by uniting God the Father and God the Mother.

Adam and Eve are the first man and woman, who were created in the image of God the Father and God the Mother. God expressed the sin of Adam and Eve as that of ‘one man’ and referred to Adam as the representative of the two. In the same way, while God the Father and God the Mother performed the Creation together, it’s expressed that God ‘alone’ did and God the Father is presented as the representative of the Creation Work.

Some people deny the holy divine nature of two Gods seen through what has been made, without knowing the profound meaning of the Bible. However, the Bible clearly testifies to God the Father and God the Mother from the first Chapter of Genesis to the last Chapter of Revelation.

Elohim” is the plural form of “El” or “Eloah” and means “Gods.” The word “Elohim” is used more than 2,500 times throughout the Bible. The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) believes in God the Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother based on the Bible.
