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.
