Westminster Shorter Catechism #12

Question 12:

What special act of providence did God exercise toward man in the estate wherein he was created?

Answer:

When God had created man, he entered into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of perfect obedience; forbidding him to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, upon the pain of death.

“The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, ‘The man who does these things will live by them.'” Galatians 3:12

“…but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:17
