In the Beginning: Part Seven (Gn 3:1-13)by Matthew Christian
God has not changed His position on sin, which presents a very real problem for the world. To fully grasp God's redemptive plan through Jesus Christ, the narrative of Genesis 3 must be taken as historical, and not fable as some would have it presented. God lavishes on mankind His Edenic paradise, anticipating man's every need and circumstance. Adam and Eve enjoyed personal, loving fellowship with God. Everything was indeed very good. Tragedy does not adequately describe what mankind lost that day. Nevertheless, the relationship was spoiled, and the course of human history was significantly altered.
