Man’s Disobedience and Fall

            Our first parents, Adam and Eve, disobeyed God their Creator by eating of the forbidden fruit in Paradise (Genesis 2:17, 3:6).  As a consequence, they died, first spiritually, as shown by the fact that they hid themselves from God (Genesis 3:8), but also physically (Genesis 5:5).  As a result of ‘The Fall’ of our first parents, the whole human race is conceived and born in sin (Psalm 51:5), has become alienated from God and His enemy so that no one seeks for God (Romans 3:10-12).
