Hi everyone, I need help understanding Gen 2:18 When God is creating and he says it is not good for man to be alone let us make for him a suitable helper then Eve is made.
I believe it refers to man’s need for community but at the same time the verse seems to be alluding to the importance of the marriage union which raises some questions for me.
- Does it mean Jesus did not leave a good life since he was a single man who never got a suitable helper? Or was this verse just specific to Adam and hence doesn’t apply to all man?
- The garden of Eden was the way life should have been before the fall, and we know that in heaven there will be no marriage, hence if marriage is so important why does it not feature in heaven unlike community which we know will be there in heaven.
- Can this scripture be specific for the marriage union and being single still be a good thing.
Thanx in advance.
