Sin is the greatest problem we have in our lives. It is sin which causes pain and suffering, wars and disease. It is sin which causes death. The Bible story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is a happy one to start with. God generously gave them everything they needed. They did not have to work hard for their food; they did not suffer illness. Above all they were close to God and were able to talk to him through the angels and to listen to his words. He gave Adam and Eve only one law. He told them that they must not eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. He told them that if they did this they would die. The Bible tells us that a serpent, or snake, lied to Eve telling her that if she disobeyed God she would not die.
