In this lesson we’re going to learn about the story of Adam and Eve, and how it teaches us about the roles of men and women, the Trinity, and the Sacrament of Marriage.
God created the world out of nothing. He created light and dark, night and day, the sun and moon, the Universe, the Earth and everything and everyone on it. God made Heaven so we could be with Him forever. God created everything. He didn’t need any tools or any equipment. Everything that He created was good.
Once God had made everything, including animals, He created humans. However, He created mankind separate from the animals by creating Adam and Eve, and all of mankind, in His image and likeness.
We just need to look at the beginning of the Baltimore Catechism to find out why God did all this:
1. Q. Who made the world?
God made the world.
2. Q. Who is God?
God is the Creator of heaven and earth, and of all things.
3. Q. What is man?

After God created the world and the very first humans, He placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They had animals and gardens and great beauty all around them. He gave them one rule: to not to eat the fruit from the tree in the middle of the Garden.
But one day the evil serpent said to Eve, “You don't have to listen to God. You can eat the forbidden fruit from the tree!”
So Eve went over to the tree to look at the fruit. It looked so delicious. Then she made a choice. She picked a piece of fruit and took a bite. She brought the fruit to Adam and asked him to eat. Once they had both taken a bite, they were ashamed because they had broken their promise to God and disobeyed Him.
They had done the wrong thing and committed the very first sin. This first sin is called ‘Original Sin.’ Because of Original Sin, Adam and Eve were separated from God and no longer had God’s life (or sanctifying grace) in their souls. Adam and Eve were banished from Eden, and had to live a life of suffering and temptation for disobeying God. God also closed the gates of Heaven and kept them closed until He sent His Son J...
