There is a saying that religion is the opium of the poor. While several skeptics will make you believe that to be the case, the truth is that without religion the world would be chaotic. Imagine if there were no rules or guidelines on how things ought to be done. Imagine a world without repercussions if something wrong were to be done. Religion brings out the best in people. Under normal circumstances, only the rich would survive in a world that is plagued with poverty as many people would make you believe. However, survival for the fittest will mean chaos and strife among people. The have nots will do everything within their powers to earn a living, and given the fact that they will be lacking, the fact that there will be no rules to protect the haves means that the have nots will stop at nothing until they depose the rich of what they have. Killing and other forms of crime will be a normal thing. Indeed it will be a cruel world.
Religion has made it possible for a perfect coexistence among people, and through religious teachings, there is humanity among people. People learn to live in harmony, and they are able to assist each other in times of trouble. For a long time, people have had a chance of trying to explain the prophecy as contained in the Bible. While many people associate the book of Genesis with the story of creation and tell fall of man, it is essential to note that just like done now books of prophecy such as the Revelation at Patmos as was given to Elder John and the Book of Daniel, the book of Genesis contains several prophesies that when looked at keenly showing us that indeed God is a God of order and his knowledge and understanding of his creation know no limits.
When God created man get gave him the authority of everything. The fact that God never wanted man to be a puppet is very clear because the man was given free will to choose what is right and what is wrong. The decisions that humankind was to make would have an impact on their future. Knowing this, God warns them against eating the fruit of knowledge. God warns them that if indeed they do, they will surely die. As the story may have it, mangoes against God, and as he commanded, the consequences are suffering and death as we experience to this day.
We can see some other instances of prophecy in the way that God talks to Abraham. Abraham is made to understand that his descendants will be many. Unfortunately, we realize that he and his wife are old and beyond their childbearing age. Being humans, they decide to take matters in their hands, but as fate will have it God's prophecies that Sarah will be pregnant and true to his word, she becomes pregnant and hears a child. Indeed as God promised Abraham, there are millions of descendants who come from that lineage of Abraham to this date. Prophecy from the book of Genesis is undoubtedly rife.
