God created Adam and Eve in His own image and likeness. He gave them the perfect life with no pain or suffering. He wanted them to be truly happy and choose to love Him, so they were given intellect and free will. For a time, everything was perfect.
As a test, He told them they could eat of any tree in the Garden of Eden, but one. If they ate from the tree, they would die. One day Eve was walking by when the serpent came out and tempted her with one of the fruits from the tree. She refused, saying God had told her not to. The serpent then tells her that God doesn't want them to eat the fruit because if they did, they would become wise and as powerful as God.
Eve ate the fruit and gave it to Adam. They realized what they had done and hid from God. He found them and asked why they ate the fruit. Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the serpent.
Due to their disobedience, Adam and Eve were banned from the Garden of Eden. They then lived lives with pain and suffering that eventually ended with death. Because of their sin, we are all born with Original Sin which can only be cleansed with Baptism.
