Genesis 3:7 (c) The fig leaves used by Adam and Eve are called aprons which cover only a part of the body, and are not sufficient for a complete covering. The fig leaf is soft like velvet, and under the heat of the sun shrinks to about one-forth of the original size. These leaves are a type of self-righteousness. After Adam and Eve made the fig leaf aprons they still hid from GOD knowing that they were still naked in His sight. No amount of self-righteous religion, church attendance, giving of money, or religious acts is sufficient to hide the sins of the heart from the face of GOD.
