Man was made in the image of God, but something happened that changed all that. And it was sin. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the fruit of the one tree in the garden He had made off-limits. And their decision to eat the forbidden fruit proved to be a life-changing one. While Satan had promised that, by eating the fruit, their eyes would be opened, they actually experienced a blurring of their spiritual vision. Yes, they now had the capacity to know good and evil, but they couldn’t tell the difference. They went from living in the light of God’s glory to wandering around in the darkness of sin. Which is why God sent the final Adam, Jesus Christ, to bring the light of God’s glory back to earth and restore sinful men and women to their former status as God’s image bearers.
