Sin Has Terrible Results
Adventure 6: God's View of You
What happened after the first sin ("the Fall")?
After the Fall, the whole human race lost fellowship with God and was cursed by sin and death. Only a sinless Savior could make them holy and happy again. 1 Corinthians 15:22 – For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
This Truth Makes
One of the life’s biggest questions is: “Why is there evil in the world?” The answer is “sin.” Sin is the ultimate bad. Sin never has positive results.
Sin has severe effects on us and on our relationships to others, but the main relationship it affects is the one with our Maker.
God promised Adam and Eve that if they ate of a certain fruit, they would die. Although they did not die physically right away, their sinful choices brought terrible effects – both then and afterwards, even up to today.
In Scripture, the word “death” means to be separated from something. To die means to separate from something. Sin has brought three types of death into the world.
1. Physical death – separation of man’s soul and spirit from his body (1 Corinthians 15:20-21)
2. Spiritual death – separation of man from God (Genesis 3:8; Genesis 3:23; Isaiah 59:2)
3. Eternal, or second death – separation of man from God forever and ever (John 8:24; Revelation 20:15; Revelation 21:8)
