It seems like from the very first chapters of the Torah, mankind is destined to be evil and transgress the law of God:
- The very first couple make the only sin they can.
- The second child the world has ever seen, Cain, kills his own brother out of jealousy.
- Noah's generation is full of thieves, idolaters and perverts.
- The generation of babel rebels against God by building the tower of babel.
On top of all that, God knew that all this will happen.
It seems like god created us with a strong nature to go against him, and then teases us with his commandments.
Is evil our nature? Or is there a secret message within these passages?
