21. Did the first people live according to God’s plan for them?

No! Through ingratitude and disobedience, they lost fellowship with their God and Father.

  • For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns – broken cisterns that can hold no water. (Jeremiah 2:13)
  • Do you thus deal with the LORD, o foolish and unwise people? (Deuteronomy 32:6)
  • For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (Romans 1:18,21)
