Adam and Eve had access to everything in the garden. There were no clothes that separated them from one another and there was no sin that separated them from the Father. But, there was a tree in the garden to which God said, “No!”- the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. God said that if they were to eat this fruit, they would surely die.
The day came when Adam and Eve passed by the one tree they were not to touch and the enemy of their souls said, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?” What unfolded out of that conversation began the cycle that we still experience today. The fruit looked good for so many reasons. The line God drew seemed silly, and the urge to have control and power took over. The fruit was picked, eaten and shared, and everything changed.
