GOD commanded Adam:

Genesis 2:17

King James Version

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it: 

for in the day that thou eatest thereof 

thou shalt surely die.

Many don't believe in it.

Many don't want to accept it.

Many try to defy it.

But the Bible was clear.

All of us have sinned:

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:12

King James Version

12 Wherefore, as by one man 

sin entered into the world, 

and death by sin; 

and so death passed upon all men, 

for that all have sinned:

You know how that all began:

Genesis 3:1

King James Version

3 Now the serpent was more subtil 

than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. 

And he said unto the woman, 

Yea, hath God said, 

Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Genesis 3:2-3

King James Version

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, 

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree 

which is in the midst of the garden, 

God hath said, 

Ye shall not eat of it, 

neither shall ye touch it, 

lest ye die.

Genesis 3:4-5

King James Version

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 

Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, 

then your eyes shall be opened, 

and ye shall be as gods, 

knowing good and evil.

Genesis 3:6

King James Version

6 And when the woman saw 

that the tree was good for food, 

and that it was pleasant to the eyes, 

and a tree to be desired to make one wise, 

she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, 

and gave also unto her husband with her; 

and he did eat.

Genesis 3:7

King James Version

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, 

and they knew that they were naked; 

and they sewed fig leaves together, 

and made themselves aprons.

Genesis 3:8

King James Version

8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God 

walking in the garden in the cool of the day: 

and Adam and his wife hid themselves 

from the presence of the Lord God 

amongst the trees of the garden.

Genesis 3:9-10

King James Version

9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, 

and said unto him, 

Where art thou?

10 And he said, 

I heard thy voice in the garden, 

and I was afraid, 

because I was naked; 

and I hid myself.

Genesis 3:11

King James Version

11 And he said, 

Who told thee that thou wast naked? 

Hast thou eaten of the tree, 

whereof I commanded thee 

that thou shouldest not eat?

Genesis 3:12

King James Version

12 And the man said, 

The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, 

she gave me of the tree, 

and I did eat.

Genesis 3:13

King James Version

13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, 

What is this that thou hast done? 

And the woman said, 

The serpent beguiled me, 

and I did eat.

That's what's called the ORIGINAL sin.

The sin of disobedience.

It's this sin that cause our "death".

Romans 6:23

King James Version

23 For the wages of sin is death; 

but the gift of God is eternal life 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Only through JESUS are we saved.

But man thinks he doesn't need saving.

Worse yet, he has sinned another sin.
