Jealousy is one of the attributes of God

According to Christian Scholars, "Obedience is the First Law in Heaven". Obedience can only be possible or realized where there is a command or law.
When God created Adam and Eve, He placed them in the Garden of Eden where they were in complete control of everything present therein. God’s first command to man came into place in Genesis 3:15-17.
Although the bible did not record the presence of the woman (Eve) when God gave the above command to man (Adam); however, Adam must have told her about God’s command. Eve proved she was aware of this command in Genesis 3:2-3.
Eventually, Adam and Eve disobeyed God in Genesis 3:6-7
From the above passages, we can now be certain that Adam and Eve disobeyed God.
The only two people born of a woman; who broke this rule were Jesus and His mother Mary.
Although it was not recorded in the bible that Mary was conceived without original sin; this still remain the belief of some Christian Scholars.
Note: Original sin is not a sin committed by us. This sin is not a function of our actions; rather it is a function of the disobedience of Adam and Eve.
Every human being born of a woman automatically inherits original sin. This implies that every child is guilty of original sin; even right in the womb of their mother.
The good news is: "This inherited sin (original sin) can be forgiven via only one way; and that’s baptism".
To become free of original sin, every person needs to be baptized of water; in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus shows the importance of baptism in Matthew 3:13:16, even though he had no stain of original sin.
Before Adam and Eve sinned, they were such a perfect creature that God walked in their environment (the Garden of Eden).
They were so perfect and innocent that they didn't even realize that they were naked. Their perfection also made them worthy of God’s Garden.
As soon as they disobeyed God, they lost their perfection, realized that they were naked and were eventually driven out of the Garden.
This is recorded in the Genesis 3:14-20
