When God created the first man and woman He placed them in a special garden and declared creation no longer to be merely good, but very good.
It was a beautiful and perfect place. They had all they needed. The Lord gave them authority over the creation.
God gave them great freedom. He allowed man and woman to name the animals and they were free to eat of any tree in the Garden. This was a perfect garden; it was paradise here on earth. Man was in perfect relationship with God.
