A Sin Autopsy – Genesis 3:1-24

When we hear the word autopsy we think of one thing, examining a body, internal and external, to answer one or more questions: how did they die, when did death occur, etc.  If you look the word up Merriam-Webster agrees and lists this as the 1st definition.  The second definition reads as follows…” a critical examination, evaluation, or assessment of someone or something past”.  What we are going to do today is more closely related to definition number two.

Jesus was asked about the first or greatest commandment; unfortunately the Scribe’s motive was not pure but Jesus answered him anyway.  What Jesus says next is the crown jewel of Christian maturity.  Mark 12:29-30  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
