As Ordained by God in the Garden of Eden

Bride’s Price

Bride’s Price

The first man paid a bride’s price in flesh and blood!

Genesis 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Genesis 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Wow! God received that bride’s price in advance! In flesh and blood to boot! What will you pay to the father of your bride, that’s of course if she’s a virgin.  ….. more to be added later…


We should take care that we do not make our profession of religion a receipt in full for all other obligations.
