Christians, how could the world have been perfect at one point, if we are still subject to birth?

How can one have birth in the world and still have perfection? Please explain. Doesn't birth imply, change/decay?

    Actually, birth implies a beginning. *Entropy* necessitates (not implies) decay.

    Eating the forbidden fruit made Adam and Eve mortal, fertile, and cognizant of good and evil. These were not disasters, but necessary developments. The world was in stasis at first -- but it was also infertile and stagnant.

    The world itself was never perfect. God made perfect Eden for Adam and Eve - who were created, not born of woman. But it had boundaries. After Adam sinned, God ejected him from Eden into a cold hard cruel world governed by birth and eventually death.

    Death is Gods penalty for sin. Read Gen 1-3.

    No, not at all, birth implies life. God did not create man to die. Death has no place with God. Death is a result of sin that came into the world when Adam bowed his knee to Satan, thereby making Satan his god and in effect handing all of creation over to Satan. As God had given Adam dominion of all creation. God created mankind to live forever as many of us will.

    Human beings were never perfect. God alone is perfect.

    The world was never perfect: heaven is.We, the Prodigal Son, left heaven and God's inheritance to make this place, and then we dumbed ourselves down to think we are just little bodies, not the inheritors of God's love, wisdom and power.
