September 18, 2016 // After God created a perfect universe, Satan deceived Adam and Eve by focusing on the one thing forbidden by God, instead of everything else which God said was good. Satan used Adam and Eve's pride to convince them that they could be just like God. Once they sinned, Adam and Eve lied - another ancient sin which continued to move out and contaminate the world to the point that God had to cleanse it with water. This worldwide cleansing sacrifice is the first precursor to the once-and-for-all-who-believe cleansing sacrifice by Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:26-27; 8:1-4.
