Adam was lonely, so God made Eve. Eve was in the Garden of Eden when she was deceived by the serpent, Satan in disguise, she took an apple from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the forbidden tree that one must not eat from, and both her and Adam ate from the fruit. The root of all of humanities problems stems from when Adam and Eve took and ate the apple plunging all of humanity into a life of sin. Now when humans are born we are sinful by nature. JesusJesus’s true identity is that he is seen as the Son of God, but Jesus is fully human and fully God at the same time.

This all had to happen for humans to be restored to God. Humans are sinful by nature. We are born sinners, Godgave his grace to us by rescuing, restoring and redeeming humanity.
