The original Paradise created in the Beginning is a real place and a principle. In this video you will learn about the Early Christian vision of Paradise. Adam and Eve are us. They had free will and were made in the image of God. When they chose to eat the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they began to experience good and evil. If you truly want to know something you have to experience it. They experienced guilt and shame for the first time. But God made for them "garments of skin" to cover their glorified bodies, and sent them out of the garden. And now they were able to sense like we do - hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch.
We have the choice to make our lives more like Paradise as we better understand the reality of Paradise. Learn 4 ways to make your life more like Paradise!
