Our Story With God, Episode 2: The Downfall of Man - Sin
After God finished the work of creation and called it "very good", what happened? Why (and how) did a breach in our relationship form? The refusal of humanity to follow a single rule introduced sin - the lawless rejection of God - into the equation. It's a sad twist in the story, but is critical to understand before we can fully appreciate the solution that God provides. For some extra thought exercises, look at the difference between God's rule and Eve's explanation. How long do you think the two were in the Garden of Eden before being removed? Send me comments, I'd love to hear from you!
