Adam and his wife are living a life of no stress, no desires, no wars, no arguments, no hatred, no fear, no money problems, no pain, no hunger, no diseases or death. And then comes a great fall (sin) which will shake their lives for ever and in the end to affect all of us.
God tells Adam with a strong warning before Eve was even created. You must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil…God explains to him why, because your days will be cut short. (God is Love) I believe He didn’t want them to get hurt and desired to protect them. Afterwards, He even introduced marriage, because He wanted them to be happy.
After this I’m sure it is now Adam’s responsibility to pass on the information to his wife, just like him was in total perfection of humility and love. I believe they had a perfect love for God, and for each other. And from a pure point of view – without making demands on each other, because when you look into the Bible they had children after the disobedience, Genesis 4:1-2.
Meanwhile, they enjoyed their jobs of working on the land as well as the scenery of the beautiful gardens and the food that came with it. They also lived peacefully with all the animals. And it seems like they could even have a conversation with them, for example, the talking snake, and when you read further in the bible a donkey spoke at one point, Numbers 22:28. I believe the communication they had with them was cut off, because of their disobedience. The mess of Adam and Eve affected the land too. Note: As leaders of all animals their decisions were crucial and critical, the same still stands today (mankind leads all other animals and when it comes to caring for the environment our decisions are critical).
