As we continue our study through the book of Genesis, we will now examine the next major theme of the book of Genesis which is “The Fall Of Man”. Adam’s decision to disobey God did not only affect him. His sinful act of disobedience affected all generations that came after him.
The consequence of Adams sin is that every person that would ever be born after him would be born into sin. As result of his disobedience, sin entered the world and all human beings born after him would be born with a sin nature. This means that you and all of your family members were born into sin and would be subject to death.
God Always Wanted To Have A Relationship Man.
Before Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God, mankind was created to have a relationship with God. When Adam sinned by eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sin became a part of their lives and all those that would be born after them.
The problem with sin is that God can not stand sin. He hates it. He hates it so much so that he could no longer maintain the relationship that he had with Adam and Eve prior to sin entering the world. As a result of the fall of man, this means that every baby that was born into the world was born separated from God because of Sin.
Sin Is A Big Deal
Sin is a big deal and is why we need to have a good understanding of the significance of the fall of man. Sin, is something that if not dealt with, will keep one from truly experiencing the Love of God as he intended. 1 John 4:8 say, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” Because sin separates man from God, it means that man is born in a state where they are not able to have an intimate relationship with God.
Even With the Fall Of Man, There Is Hope
However, there is hope which can only be found by submitting one’s life and placing their faith in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
