Did God create people bad or good?
“And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.”
— Genesis 2:16-17
In the beginning man was innocent of sin.
God created man with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin and death into the human race.
