Adam’s act was not simply one of millions of human acts- it was of mythic proportion- of far greater importance and effect than any other. Upon this One Act hangs the destiny of all Mankind. We know this only because God has revealed it, centuries later in Scripture. It was not simply a bite of forbidden “apple” (I mean who hasn’t done something like that?) or like an “oops, better get Maaco” moment; and then saying, “I’m sorry Dad, I screwed up, but come on, it’s not the end of the world.”, just will not do. In God’s eyes, that moment was pivotal for the destiny for every human being ever to be born. Thus, I call it “mythic”, but that is not to question its historicity, because it is parallel to another singular act that absolutely was historically true.

Millions of people do millions of things, live and die, every day. There are two, only two people, and what they did, in all of human history that are truly pivotal. (We know this and what we are going to write next, only because God, in the Scripture has revealed it.)

Before the beginning of time, God had a vision of a world and of people in that world. He created the earth and put the first person on it. This person was the first of billions- the prototype, if you will. He was created to be the image of God on earth- like God in a number of key ways and as such he was intended to represent God as His caretaker of the earth. Most of all this man, and all human beings like him, were meant to live in a perfect relationship with his Creator. That perfect relationship required perfect obedience. Failing this would require God to scrub the entire mission.
