Based on Genesis 3
Now the snake was the most cunning of all the animals God had created. Satan entered into the snake, and one day he came to Eve and asked, “Did God really say you must not eat any of the fruit in the garden?”
“Of course we may eat it,” Eve told him. “It’s only the fruit from the tree which gives the understanding of good and evil that we are not allowed to eat. God says we must not eat it or even touch it, or we will die.” “You won’t die!” the snake hissed. “God knows that when you eat this fruit you will become just like him, knowing everything, both good and evil.”
Eve was convinced. The fruit looked so fresh and delicious, and it would make her so wise! So she ate some fruit. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. Adam ate it, too. At that moment, something inside them changed, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they put leaves together to cover their nakedness.
Toward evening Adam and Eve heard God walking about in the garden, so they hid themselves among the trees.
God called to Adam, “Where are you?” Adam replied, “I heard you, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.” “Who told you that you were naked?” God asked. “Have you eaten the fruit I commanded you not to eat?”
“Yes,” Adam admitted, “but it was the woman you gave me who brought me the fruit, and I ate it.” Then God asked Eve, “How could you do such a thing?” “The snake tricked me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”
So God said to the snake, “Because you have done this, you will be punished. You will crawl in the dust as long as you live. From now on your descendants and the descendants of the woman will be enemies. You will bite his heel, but he will crush your head.”
Then God said to Eve, “You will give birth to children with intense pain and suffering.”
And God said to Adam, “Because you ate the fruit I told you not to eat, I have placed a curse on the ground. All your life you will struggle to live from it. It will grow thorns and thistles, you will sweat to produce food, until you die.”
Then God said, “Now people know everything, both good and evil. What if they eat the fruit from the tree that gives life? Then they will live forever!” So God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden and prevented them from returning to the tree that gave life.
