Adam was created good, had perfect health, lived in a perfect environment, and had direct personal fellowship with God. God had given him a perfect wife to share his life and the authority to rule over nature. He had everything he could possibly need. So why did he sin? Why did Adam disobey God by eating the forbidden fruit?
We know why Eve sinned; she was deceived by Satan (1Tim. 2:14). Genesis 3:1-6 records her conversation with a talking snake that questioned God’s Word, God’s goodness, and the truth of God’s judgment. The serpent appealed to her pride as he tempted her with knowledge, saying she would become like God.
