Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden, in paradise. They walked with God and were untouched by sin; the only state where one could walk face to face with the creator of all things. Their minds were pure and worked at a level of perfection no one can imagine. Having been made for one another, they cleaved together in the truest sense and shared a holy, spiritual bond no two people have experienced since. They were truly one flesh. Still, they sinned, and in so doing were cursed and banished from the garden, to forever toil on the Earth until they experienced that which was never part of God's plan: death. But why? What were the exact circumstances surrounding their sin? What did God say afterwards, why is it called a curse, and how does its very wording affect all relationships today?
