Eden

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and Earth, filled them with wonders and creatures. Six days of creation and a day of rest. How majestic, God’s universe perfect in every way.

In those early days, God added a man on the earth. He even gave him a wife. The man and his wife walked in perfection, walked with God. God gave them everything to enjoy except the fruit on one tree.

Then the devil came along. He offered them something extra, something they thought was desirable – knowledge. All they had to do was eat the fruit of the one tree they couldn’t; and they did.

In the end, not only did they gain knowledge [an undesirable knowledge], but they lost everything that mattered. This is the fall, the first failure.
