The First Sin

The first sin was not eating the fruit of the tree. No, eating the fruit was the inevitable result of the first sin. The first sin was trusting Lucifer and distrusting God: losing faith in God. Once a lack of faith was established more sin had to follow. Disobedience is an evidence of a lack of faith. So it was with Eve – and so it is with us. We cannot say we have faith in God, but evidence a lack of faith; which is disobedience or rebellion to what He said. If faith is not followed by obedient works, it is a dead faith. It is no faith at all.
