So, of course we've all heard the story of Adam and Eve thousands of times, but I was just reading my Bible lesson for school today, and I learned something..
The Bible says that God said "Don't eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or you will surely die".
Yeah, whatever...But, then they DO eat of it and they DON'T die! We all know that God is not a liar because He is perfect, so what happened?
Their body and soul did not die, their Spirit did. When their Spirit died, they were immediately separated from God.
