Garden of Eden
'Original sin'

Neighbor hears Christians say:  'The earth was a perfect paradise until Adam ruined God's creation and caused death to everything by eating some forbidden fruit.'
Neighbor hears Christians say:  'Everyone is born personally guilty for what Adam did and, without Jesus, will burn in hell forever as punishment ... even people who never heard of Adam or Jesus.'
How would YOU answer your neighbor who thinks that's preposterous, and certainly not an all-powerful God of love and justice. Doesn't want any part of it. Can you find and explain what the Bible actually says about it?
