Adam and Eve disobey God

Adam and Eve fall into temptation.

Now the snake was the most clever and cunning of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. – Slide 1
One day the snake spoke to Eve, ‘Did God really say that you must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden?’ – Slide 2
Eve answered, ‘We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden.  But God told us, “You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden. You must not even touch it, or you will die.’” – Slide 3
But the snake said to the woman, ‘You will not die. God knows that if you eat the fruit from that tree, you will learn about good and evil. Then you will be like God!” – Slide 4
Eve saw that the tree was beautiful. She saw that its fruit was good to eat and that it would make her wise. – Slide 5
So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of the fruit to her husband Adam who was with her, and he ate it. – Slide 6
Then, it was as if the man’s and the woman’s eyes were opened. They realised they were naked. So, they sewed fig leaves together and made something to cover themselves. – Slide 7
Then they heard the Lord God walking in the garden. Adam and Eve hid from the Lord God among the trees. God asked Adam, ‘Did you disobey and eat fruit from that forbidden tree? – Slide 8
Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the snake for their disobedience.’ <br/>God then told them they would all be punished for doing what they had been asked not to do. – Slide 9
The Lord God made clothes from animal skins for the man and his wife. Then He forced the Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden. They were no longer His friends and their relationship with Him was broken. – Slide 10
Then God put angels on the east side of the garden. He also put a flashing sword of fire there. This kept people from getting to the tree of life. – Slide 11
