Long-before we were here on Earth in the physical, Adam's 
was destined to be applied to us as soon as we were conceived -1Corinthians 15:21,22 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."-Romans 5:12,14-19 "Wherefore, as by one man-(Adam)-sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned-(in Adam, as the next verse shows). Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression-(the reason it says that "death reigned from Adam till Moses" is because in Moses time there was provision for forgiveness of sin under the Old Testament Mosaic Law, but only a yearly atoning for sin, looking forward to that ultimate sacrifice of Christ, which would do away with all sin, once and for ever yet people still die, but not as God looks at it; death to Him is simply going to sleep for a while, later to be resurrected; to us there's death; to God there really is no death, as He is eternal, as we are too {our spirits}), who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift-(sin and death came by one and righteousness and life came by one). For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace,-(which is His righteousness)-which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift-(or, the free gift came not by one that had sinned). For the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences-(how many?)-unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one, judgment came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the free gift-(of righteousness)-came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall-('shall', not in original)-many-(how many?)-be made righteous." Galatians 3:22 "But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe."
    Adam was the first man and had a spirit added to him that enabled him to comprehend things. This provided a great gap between man and the animals -1Corinthians 2:11 "For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God." Isaiah 42:5 "Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens and stretched them out, he that spread forth the earth and that which cometh out of it, he that giveth breath unto the people upon it and spirit to them that walk therein."

What went wrong? The first man Adam had it all--a woman designed by God, a lush garden paradise to live in.(Genesis 2:8-15), an interesting job.(Genesis 2:15,19), no problem with lack of food, no neighbours.(yet).that were jealous of him, etc.
    But death came upon him and all of us born after him -1Corinthians 15:22.
    Contrariwise, life eternal became available for us through Jesus Christ
    So what really was Adam's error? Apart from his partner Eve, the only other person on Earth then, Adam had no one to hate and hurt, no reason to overdo alcohol consumption, no drugs and no reason to take them if he even knew of the strange effects some plants produce, no cigarettes, no money around to embezzle, and none other yet around that he could take selfish advantage of.
    Did he stuff himself like a pig? He had no reason to escape and/or gain comfort through overeating. He obviously had need of Eve.
    Adam had a good and growing relationship with his creator. This is evidenced by the time they were walking in the garden and how he and Eve reacted when they heard God's voice -Genesis 3:8-13. Adam trying to protect his relationship with God throws his relationship with Eve out the window. 
    God loved Adam and wanted the relationship to continue and grow. In relationships we have choices. But Adam chose for Adam. This choosing a way apart from trusting what God had told him was for his good, changed Adam's life for the worse. He had it all and blew it with a little help from the dark side--Genesis 3:1-5.
    Earlier Adam concurred with his partner Eve regarding the importance of having knowledge they became convinced the lack of would be a hindrance to total fulfillment -Genesis 2:9.
    Adam and Eve became persuaded they had the right to what eating the tree's produce would provide.
    He probably reasoned 'I know God's way.(at least what he learned about God so far).and if I learn this other way I've just found out about.(the knowledge of good and evil), I'll be wiser and more enlightened, because I'll know both and then have a greater mental outlook about which way to proceed with my life.' 
    The meaning of things.(even sin).is dependent on its outset connotation. For example, how could one identify sin without understanding the original event from which sin's meaning became known?
    Adam missed the mark of love with God, love here meaning a rapport, a rapport with God. Adam stepped outside of what he knew God expected in His relationship with him. This was his error. He broke the rapport that had been developing with God. He broke the relationship. He knew he did wrong and tried to hide himself and the problem from God.(Genesis 3:8-13).so his position would be maintained. He feared God would cause him loss. He no longer walked and talked with God -verse 9.
    Today, in Christ we continually welcome His guidance. We ask God about all we feel we need to ask Him for help about until we learn, thereby becoming more like Him, eventually becoming convinced that there is no other way -John 14:6.
    Adam couldn't get rid of his sins as the Old Testament Mosiac Law had not yet been put into effect.(Romans 5:14), and of course, it was long before the time Jesus came to remove all sin for all time -Job 31:33.
    So, in any relationship we should be sure to have more wisdom.(what is wisdom).than Adam and consider both the little and big threats to the relationship so as to avoid them. But don't be too hard on Adam. He had no history to look to. He was the first; no one else was around with mistakes made for Adam to consider their consequences.

Just as the children we reproduce are so different, so it is with God. He wants individuals, not automatons.
    God placed a spirit in man to begin this process.(Romans 8:16 "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God."-how?).-If you have the Spirit of God in you, you're a child of God.
    First the comprehension, observance, interaction and evaluation of ourselves and our surroundings which leads us to tie our identities to externals. Then comes the spiritual if God is working spiritually with you, or, working on you--1Corinthians 15:45-50 "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy. The second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy. And as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." 
   Adam was the one through whom sin and death was passed on to all of us.(again, 1Corinthians 15:21 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead."), and through Jesus Christ – life forever.

Adam's story begins in Genesis

God created the earth for people.(Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them;  and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Isaiah 45:18 "For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens, God himself that formed the earth and made it. He hath established it, he created it not in vain. He formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD and there is none else").so they could populate it. The physical creation was planned by God to begin the process of  Him reproducing Himself in us, but not as clones

From.David Guzik's Commentary:."When God created the Earth, He quite likely built an 'old' Earth--creating things in the midst of a time sequence, with age 'built into' them. For example, Adam was already of mature age when he was created; there was age 'built in' to him. Likewise, the trees in the garden of Eden had rings in them, and there were undoubtedly canyons and sand beaches in Adam's world. 
    The Bible says plainly that death.(death for mankind with the spirit of man in him man as we know him today).came by Adam.(Romans 5:12, above, top).and since man's fossils are the result of death, they could not have happened before Adam's time."....continue?
