He also gave them the opportunity to do so.
Our first parents, Adam and Eve, were created perfect, with no defect in mind or body. (Deuteronomy 32:4) Imagine—no chronic aches and pains, no morbid fears or anxieties!

Because of what Adam did, “sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Romans 5:12) When Adam sinned, he “sold” himself and us into slavery to sin and death. (Romans 7:14) Is there any hope for us? Yes, there is. The Ransom sacrifce of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
