Catechism Question #12 (May)
 

Q.  What special act of providence did God exercise toward man in the state wherein he was created?
A.  When God had created man, He entered into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of perfect obedience; forbidding him to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, upon pain of death.

Genesis 2:17 -
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
