Very brief story.... Adam was the first man put on earth, and he was lonely and god thought he needed a companion so he puts eve in the picture, and the first rule adam tells her is too never eat an apple from the tree. She gives in too temptation and eats an apple so therefore releases fear and sadness into the world. Don't get offended by my story..... I just summarized it so feel free too add too it.
god tells Adam and Eve, don't eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil for in the day you eat of it you shall surely die... the serpent tells them, no you will not, if you eat of the tree you shall become as gods knowing both good and evil... so, Adam and Eve eat of the tree, and do they die? no... in fact, god says, behold they have become as gods knowing both good and evil... so, he sends them from the garden and prevents them from returning and eating of the tree of life...
while i believe this is all rubbish, what can a believer take from it? the serpent told the truth, and god is a lying vindictive jerk
I'll be nice and tell you. Adam was created by God(trinity) on the sixth day. He was the first man and had dominion over all living creatures. All the creatures around him had mates and he wanted one too. So onetime he fell asleep and God granted his need by taking out one of his ribs and creating a woman named Eve. (uptill today, men have 1 less rib than women) Adam and Eve lived together in the garden of eden and had all they needed. However, God refused them to eat the forbidden fruit from the tree in the center of the Garden of Eden. One day however, Eve was tempted by the devil in form of a cunning serpent to eat the fruit; promising results of great wisdom. Eve had disobeyed God and so had sinned...on behalf of all mankind. After eating the fruit, adam and eve were now aware of their nakedness so they hid from God. God called them out and clothed them out of love but also punished them as follows; adam had to toil for his food, eve had to give birth in pain, and the serpent had to lose its legs and crawl on its belly. They were all kicked out of eden and today all human kind suffers on their behalf. However, because of God's love, he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. All who believe in him shall not perish in hell but have everlasting life. Jesus Christ dying on the cross for our sins was God's plan to redeem mankind from the consequences of Adam and Eve's action (eating the forbidden fruit). All who believe in Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior will go to heaven and live in paradise when Jesus comes back for the second time. We can be able to follow the right path by believing in Jesus and listening to the Holy Spirit who helps us do what is right. Whenever we sin, we can repent genuinely and God will forgive us. Hope that helped:)
The story of Adam and Eve was stolen from the Mesopotamian creation myth( that's kinda funny how when a religion is no longer worshiped it becomes mythology). A lot of what is in the bible was stolen from other religions, one of the biggest misconceptions about the bible is people actually think it was written as it happened. Have you actually read the bible it is the greatest work of fiction in existence.
