Why do people do such mean things? Why do I want to say “no!” instead of “yes”? Why would I rather disobey?
The desire to disobey God began with the first people, Adam and Eve. The sins of Adam and Eve brought bad things, or corruption, into the world. That means things would not be perfect anymore. Now things would die. All people would be born bad and separated from the holy God (Romans 5:12).
