Adam and Eve took the decision to seek their own direction, and doing what was right in their own eyes, by taking from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We too have this tree and choice. Everyday we can either live as we see best or seek to live as Jesus would want us to live. Until someone comes to the decision to receive Jesus and to follow Him and His teaching with their hearts, they are dead. As Jesus said “I came to give them life and life to the full”. Only He can do this as this is why God sent Him.
