    What happened to him when he sinned against God?

    Do we experience the same today, per the Bible?

    (Genesis 3:9)
    "9 Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?"


    My friend. Did our omniscient God not know where Adam was? or was God asking, Adam why are you not seeking me? Why are you not focusing on me like you always do? Why are you hiding and focusing on yourself and others?

    The more we focus on God the closer we come to Him. When Adam sinned, his focus was on Eve and when Eve sinned her focus was on the serpent. That is part of our spiritual falleness today for believers-struggling to focus only on God for everything just as Adam did before the fall.

    I believe that the Rabbinical tradition (commentary) was that Adam
    (and Eve) were clothed with light; many have commented that this
    was the Holy Spirit. When they disobeyed God, the light disappeared
    and they found themselves naked and then hid themselves in shame.
    Note that at this phase in man-God relations that God directly
    communicated with man.

    example:
    And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
    If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?
    - Gen 4:6-7a

    All this is is a rhetorical question, to which you already know the answer. Instead of wasting the time to type my response, I was giving you the floor, so you could enlighten us.


    And like Brother FAL stated. What truth? You haven't posted anything for us to respond to.

    per the Bible...

    ALL of us have sinned, and that is due to the fact that since the fall of Adasm, we are all born with a sinful nature, that willfully choses to sin and rebel against God!
