What curse came upon Adam and Eve?

After God drove Adam and Eve how did they experience the curse that was put upon them?

Thanks for asking a question on thisisyourbible.com

Genesis 3:16-19 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

It is clear from Genesis 3 what the curses were. The primary curse is death. It really means death and not the pagan superstition of the immortality of the soul. There is hope for life after death. The Bible teaches resurrection at the return of the Lord, not an immaterial soul.

After Death What?

I hope you have found this helpful.
