Tuesday’s speech had an error which someone very kindly pointed out to me and I would like to correct it.

I had stated that Adam was given the command to be fruitful and multiply before Eve was created and then gave that as the reason for her creation. This is incorrect; Eve was created at the time of this command and it was given to her as well as Adam. So instead of being created only to help man carry out instructions, she was given them herself. Woman bears the same responsibility as man to carry out the command to be fruitful and multiply, to fill the earth and subdue it.
