The Fall of Man

Genesis 2:17 teaches us that God told Adam, not to eat from the “.. tree of the knowledge of good and evil,…” God tells them they will die, however when they later eat from it we note they don’t physically die rather suffer a spiritual death and separation from God. Adam and Eve had only known good but after eating from the tree they knew how to do evil. Love is a choice so God provided the chance for people to either love and obey Him or disobey. The first humans decided to disobey God and as a result they “sinned”. The sin meant that they spiritually died and were no longer the perfect creation God once made, it also is the reason later they would physically die rather than live forever. However, even though Adam and Eve sinned God had a plan that as through, “Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (1 Corinthian 15:22).” What does that mean then? It, means that the fall of man did not interfere with God’s plan rather instead it provided a way for people to choose to freely love and obey God or disobey. It gave all creation a chance to enter into Heaven through Jesus Christ. If, mankind would not have sinned they very well would have remained in the garden of Eden forever. The plan of salvation and happiness of God may in fact have been that man would sin, be given the chance to repent (through Christ), then given the chance to die and live with God forever. Whether or not the fall of man was God’s plan it did not stop God’s plan! Sin in the Garden of Eden was defeated when the “…fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,… (Galatians 4:4).” Eternal life is given through the only true God and Jesus Christ who died to save us (John 17:3) through faith in Him. We can all stand before God without blame, without the blemish of sin, and without the fear of eternal death. All it takes to overcome spiritual death (or hell) is a choice and the only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ. If, we all repent and put our faith in Jesus He saves us. May, we all know eternal life and “…the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent…(John 17:3).” Amen
