In this paper, the relationship between obeying the Lord and having a good life is closely examined through the lives of Adam and Eve, Noah, and Abraham. The paper attempts to show that the message that "Genesis" is trying to send is that living a life of obedience to the Lord will surely reward you with a good life, one where you are always getting closer to the Lord and the way life was originally intended.

From the Paper:

"Long after the time of Adam and Eve the world was filled with wickedness, sin and corruption. Among the people living on Earth, there was one righteous man among them named Noah. Now Noah was not without sin, but he found favor in the eyes of the Lord. God wanted to destroy humankind, for he regretted even creating it. God saw that Noah was good and gave him instructions on how he was to do his part in God's plan of wiping out humankind. Noah did not question God, but simply obeyed as it is stated in Genesis chapter 6."
