SIN THE BACKGROUND FOR THE FALL God told Adam before Eve was created that he was not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Gen. 2:17) Further God warned that in the day he did eat the fruit of that tree man would surely die. Adam was without sin, but God had given him a will which gave Adam the potential to sin. At first, Adam exercised his will toward God and had fellowship with Him. How long a period of time between Adam and Eve's creation elapsed the Bible does not tell us. The only clue we have is that they did not have children before the Fall, which seems to indicate a short period of probably a few weeks. However, this is speculation. Eve was tempted by Satan who took the form of a serpent. (3:1) The serpent is described as being more subtile or clever than any other animal of the field. This probably is why Satan choose to take the form of a snake. Eve, seems not to think it unusual that the serpent could speak to her. Possibly, Adam and Eve could communicate with animals, but again that is pure speculation.
Adam and Eve, having sinned had broken intimate fellowship with God. The effects of sin is always separation from God. This does not mean that God does not love us, but it means God by His nature must be separated from sin. The sin that plunged mankind into sin was not murder or some other gross sin, but a simple act of eating the fruit of a prohibited tree. The sin was disobedience. It shows that man was not capable of determining what was good and evil and that man must trust God in the matter. The tree was placed there to define good and evil. On all the earth there was only one source of temptation, that one tree. Adam and Eve, in reality did already know what was right and wrong. It was wrong to eat the fruit of that one tree. That had to exercise trust in God; God said it was forbidden and thus they had to accept that it was. Note that God had given man a will. There was a need of a prohibition on man's will. Man was not God and did not have the knowledge of God, thus was and is a creature needing guidance and help. Man was not a robot programmed to be a performer. Man was made a free being able and expected to use his God given ability to choose to correctly obey God. Man's sin brought the judgment of having to toil and have great hardships in making a livelihood. The same word which describes the pain of women in childbirth is used her to describe man's pain in laboring for a living. The life of man would be one of hard work caused by "thorns and thistles" indicating that even the plants of earth were adversely effected by man's sin. After a hard life man would die and be returned to the dust from which he was formed.
