Before Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, there had never been sin in the world. If you think about that, nothing bad had ever happened!! There had been no accidents, illnesses or pain. All of these are a result of sin. Adam and Eve were given a choice but there had never been any bad. All that came after. The choices of one man and one woman changed the entire world. Because of their sin there is now death of the physical body (although the soul is still eternal like God). Because of their choices we now know sickness, war, disease and hatred. However, before we blame them to much we need to understand something very important: one person can change the course of the Earth! Each and every person has within them the ability to change things for good or for evil. So rather than focusing on how they ruined everything, we need to focus on our choices and make ones to change the world for good!!
