7. The original sin


 

  1. Adam and Eve dissobeyed God

    The first man created by God was Adam, and the first woman was Eve. God gave them a beautiful place called the earthly paradise. They were very happy; both were their friends and didn't suffer any harm. But God wanted to prove their love and obedience, and put them to test. He said: “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.’

       The devil took the appearance of a snake and tell Eve to eat from the tree. If she did that, she would be like God. Eve listened the snake and took the fruit, disobbeying God.She also gave some to Adam, who was with her, and he ate. Both commited a terrible sin, the disobedience against God. That was the first sin made by men.

       Adam and Eve loose their friendship with God and an angel threw them out from paradise and closed Heaven's doors to them.
