Q. 17. Did our first parents continue in the estate wherein they were created?
A. Our first parents, being left to the freedom of their own will, fell from the estate wherein they
were created, by sinning against God.
Genesis 3:6  So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.
Galatians 3:12  But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”
Romans 5:12  Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.
