"For the wages of sin is death" (Rom 6:23). The first man rejected the glory and goodness of God, trading it for nothing more than a piece of forbidden fruit.

"For the wages of sin is death" (Rom 6:23). The first man rejected the glory and goodness of God, trading it for nothing more than a piece of forbidden fruit.
