The Fall of Man

Mankind’s history starts with a personal, face-to-face relationship with God. Adam and Eve’s  life in Eden was an incredible opportunity to know God and to be known by Him. There was also a protective limitation: don’t eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Incredible!

The wonderful story became a depressing tragedy. Adam and Eve pursued their selfish desires instead of following the caring guidelines of God; they ate the prohibited fruit and became conscious of good and evil. The resulting guilt and fear caused them to hide and isolate themselves from the very life-giving source who had created them, Father God. Unbelievable, but true!

“Father God, I do not want to be cut off from you. I long to know you as I am known. I want to live according to your wisdom every day.”

The next symbol is The Promise of a Messiah
