transgression: child bearing
14. Adam was first formed, then Eve; she was created for the man, and not the man for the woman (1 Co. 11:9); then she was deceived, and brought the man into the transgression. 7. Though the difficulties and dangers of childbearing are many and great, as they are part of the punishment inflicted on the sex for Eve's transgression, yet here is much for her support and encouragement: Notwithstanding she shall be saved, etc. Though in sorrow, yet she shall bring forth, and be a living mother of living children; with this proviso, that they continue in faith, and charity, and holiness, with sobriety: and women, under the circumstance of child-bearing should by faith lay hold of this promise for their support in the needful time.
Childbearing is a suffering. Suffering restricts and protects the fallen one from transgression.
When I read this as often as I have read this , this was the first time I truly understood this passage of scripture.
Childbearing saved my sex (women) and gives us through faith the opportunity to be saved!
God has design this great order of things and the world is trying to convince men and women of the opposite. Man created Adam and Eve for Adam not Adam for Eve. God created a man and a woman to become one in marriage. The world is convinces folks that other lifestyles are acceptable but they aren't.
