Category: Adam, Eve and the Garden of Eden
Question: Before Adam and Eve sinned which of the following didn't God command them to do?
- Wear Clothes
- Name The Animals
- Not To Eat Of The Tree Of The Fruit Of The Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil.
- Maintain The Garden Of Eden
God gave Adam and Eve the Garden of Eden to care for. Before the fall this wasn't a hardship, but a joy to manage for the Lord God. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was used in the context that people are given free will to choose to live for or deny God. This is what differentiates people from animals. We were created to be in fellowship with the Lord God. Animals don't have this same free will. Ultimately when Adam and Eve consumed the fruit of this tree a distance came between people and God was formed. After sinning they realized they were naked and wanted clothing. It is through Jesus' work on the cross we are able to be accepted by a Holy God.
Based on Genesis 2:4-25
