Westminster Shorter Catechism #13

Question 13:

Did our first parents continue in the estate wherein they were created?

Answer:

Our first parents, being left to the freedom of their own will, fell from the estate wherein they were created, by sinning against God.

“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.” Genesis 3:6-8

“…God made mankind upright, but men have gone in search of many schemes.” Ecclesiastes 7:29
