Man Is Not Cursed

When Balak, king of the Moabites, was terrified of the forces that had come against him, he called on Balaam to curse the Israelites. Balaam refused, saying: "How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? ... Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it." Num. 23:8, 20;

Man is the blessed child of God. The first chapter of Genesis tells about the complete spiritual creation of man and the universe. This chapter reveals that God created man in His own image and likeness, that God blessed His creation and saw that it was good. God forever maintains man in this state of perfection. Throughout the account of the true creation there is no mention of evil or of a curse. All is eternally, changelessly good.
