Life on Earth Begins & The Fall of Man

You had said that You’d made Adam and Eve to be just like You:

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” (Gen 1:26).

Plus you gave them everything they could need.  I’d have to say they had it made, but I hear they messed up so what happened?

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden. 

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise1, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons” (Gen 3:1-7).

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (1 Jn 2:16).

Note: The same tactic the devil used on Eve he uses today.  He doesn’t have any new tricks, just experience (2 Cor 2:11, 11:3, 14).
