About

While some understand the reference to Adam in Genesis to be a general reference to mankind as a whole or the creation of more than one couple, most conservative scholars reject such a view and understand the Genesis to refer to the creation of a literal Adam and Eve as a single couple. This is further supported by the NT. He clearly understood the reference to Adam and Eve to the first man and woman.

Original sin is passed on to all human beings from our first parents, Adam and Eve. As St. They had no choice of spouse except their siblings.

In contrast, incestual relationships in the direct line—i. Beyond the first generation there arise concerns regarding incestual birth defects and inbreeding that will impair, not foster, family ties and the covenantal expansion of the family of God. Because of these concerns, there developed proscriptions against incest in both the Bible and modern Church canon law see Lev.

As a result of original sin, disease and other defects began to plague man, culminating in death.

These diseases and defects are more likely to be passed on via procreation within incestual unions. However, because Adam and Eve were created directly by God, this was not a major concern for children procreated through the intermarriage of their first-generation sons and daughters; the gene pool had not been impaired as it would be in successive generations.

The ancient rabbis teach that Adam and Eve had upwards of twenty-five sets of twins, so there would certainly be no need for incestual unions to continue after the first generation of their offspring. Incest beyond the first generation is also problematic because of social and religious reasons.

God tells man to be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth Gen. A man is supposed to leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife Gen. Marriage is not only an important social institution but, more important, a crucial religious institution that creates rights and duties between parents and toward their children CCC Furthermore, Christ told his apostles to make disciples of all the nations, and marriage is a crucial means for expanding the covenantal family of God.
