It is important to know the essence of this plan of God on salvation. In fact, this is the central theme of the whole Scriptures. Whatever riches we get from this world, whatever knowledge we have gained, however powerful we are; they are nothing if we do not have salvation. Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, " What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?" Man have sinned and God's justice demands punishment for the sins committed and the consequences of sins committed by our parents which was passed on to them by their parents, by their parents' parents, and so on... which, if we are going to trace back, it will lead us back to Adam and Eve. That sin being passed to us is what what we called, the "original sin" - the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life. It is important to trace back why man has to suffer for the consequences of sins. What was his life before he committed sin and what had happened to him after he had committed sin. THE MAN WAS IN A PERFECT PARADISE. After God created the first man, Adam, he was placed in the garden of Eden, the Paradise. He was assigned as steward of God's creations and he was provided with food and anything he needed(Genesis 2:15-16). In the garden, he can eat anything he wants, except the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17). He was in a perfect paradise with no problem, and concerned to nothing except for giving names and taking care of God's creations (Genesis 1:29-30 & 2:19-20). God made a woman (Eve) out of Adam's ribs. Put them together in the garden. They were both naked, innocent and no shame was found in them (Genesis 2:21-25). As God created man in His own image, there was peace between God and man; they had a close communion with each other (Genesis 1:26:27). You can read it at www.gov.ph.
