God’s only rule was that neither Adam or Eve would eat from the Tree of Knowledge. Of course, we know that Adam and Eve break that rule and they are tricked by Satan in a serpent’s disguise into eating an apple from the tree, thus banishing all of mankind from Eden and causing them to fall to Earth.
