QUESTION FOR WEEK #15
Why did Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit if God said not to?
ANSWER FOR WEEK #15
Adam and Eve were sinless and perfect when God created them. But they still could
choose to do what was wrong (just like you can choose to do what you aren't supposed to.)
When the devil tempted them to eat the forbidden fruit, they chose to do it. Although
people talk about Adam and Eve eating an "apple" in the Garden of Eden, we don't know
what the fruit looked like or how it tasted. All we know is that it was the one fruit in that
big, beautiful garden that they weren't supposed to eat. Adam and Eve at the fruit because
the devil started them thinking about what it would be like. Then he lied about God's rule
to make them think that God was keeping something good from them. Pretty soon they
wanted to eat the fruit more than they wanted to obey God's rule.
