Wanting to Be like God
The Fall. God created a man and woman to live together—and with Him intimately—in a garden paradise. There disobedience, eating what was forbidden, introduces sin into the world and cause their expulsion from paradise. When all that is known is good, knowledge of good and evil only adds evil. As Paul expresses it (Romans 5:12): “Sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin.” That is our inheritance from Adam.
