All mankind is born with a sinful nature that is selfish and naturally sins against God
Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
In the Garden of Eden God gave Adam a choice. He could allow God to show him what is good and what is evil and submit himself to God. He could walk with God in harmony and live by His wonderful laws of love. Or he could make himself god and decide for himself what was good and evil. Of course, Satan deceived him into choosing to make himself god. What Adam did not understand is he would serve someone. He would be influenced by either God or the devil. When he rejected God and sinned against him he came under the influence of the devil. By the time Noah came around every thought and intent of the heart of all the people on the whole earth was evil continually. Man is condemned and damned for he is born with a nature that exalts himself as god to choose good from evil for himself.
At the cross, Jesus reconciled man back to God. Once again mankind has a choice. The same two trees are set before him. He can continue to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil where he continues to make himself god and decide what he determines is good and evil. Or he can choose the Tree of life. The Cross is the Tree of Life. When you accept Jesus into your heart you are born again. You get to start your life over. You are reconciled to God and you gladly submit to what He says is good and evil. His laws of love become the wisdom you build your life on. You walk in harmony with your God submitting to His Lordship.
God sets before each one of us this day life or death, blessing or cursing. You can continue to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and be cursed and experience death or you can choose to believe the gospel and accept Jesus into your heart and be blessed and experience life.
