Book: God’s Bible Pathway For Children

Satan started all the disobedience against God and all trouble and rebellion. Satan is the power of the air moving peoples' minds. Listening to Satan has changed the nature of people and animals. People don't want to obey God. Some Animals are frightened of peo­ple and some animals eat other animals and people.

God told Adam, “Because you have listened to your wife and have eaten from the tree of which I com­manded you saying; you shall not eat of it, Cursed is the ground. Thorns and also thistles shall it bring forth. In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread… for dust you are and unto dust shall you return” (Genesis 3:17-19).


God drove the man and woman out of the Garden of Eden and set cherubim (angels) with flaming swords to stop anyone going near the Tree of Life.

Adam and Eve had to go out and work extra hard to live by digging the ground to grow their food.


Adam and Eve's first two sons were Cain and Abel. After they grew up to be young men, they had troubles. Abel obeyed God by offering the correct sacrifice, but Cain made an offering to God that he devised in his own heart. God told Cain that He would not accept his evil offering and told him to repent. Cain became angry at God and did not repent. He also was jealous of Abel and killed him, so God punished Cain for his wickedness and rebellion by placing a mark on him. Then God sent him and the rest of his family to live in the land of wander­ing. But, Cain and his descendants continued to rebel against God, even to this day.

Adam and Eve had many more children and grand­children as did Cain and his wicked family. It was about 1,500 years after creation, when the descendants of Cain and most of the other descendants of Adam and Eve had sinned so greatly and multiplied their wicked­ness, that their every thought was only evil.

And the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. And the Lord said, 'I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the crawling thing, and the fowl of the air; for I repent that I have made them'“ (Genesis 6:5-7).
