Q4. Why did they sin?

Talking Things Over:

  1. What was Satan’s lie (Genesis 3:4-5)?
  2. What was the warning God gave Adam and Eve about eating from the forbidden tree (Genesis 2:17)?
  3. Whose fault was that first sin? Whom did Adam try to blame for his sin? (read Genesis 3:12 carefully). Whose fault are your sins?
  4. In what ways was man like God when he was created? What happened when he sinned?


Words to Remember:

  • Image Of God – The way man was created to love God and do His will.
  • Satan – A wicked angel who hates God and tries to lead God’s people into sin. Other names for him are the Devil, the Evil One, the Tempter.
