Cleanliness is next to godliness

We found a wonderful children's Bible at a thrift store for helping orphan kids get adopted. www.hfgf.org Of course we started last night with creation then Adam and Eve. The question at the bottom of the page was, "What did Adam and Eve do wrong?"
Ryan's answer? "They didn't wash the apple."
