Sin Never Has Good Results
Case 6: God's View of You
What happened after the first sin ("the Fall")?
After the fall, instead of being holy and happy, the whole human race lost fellowship with God and was cursed by sin and death. 1 Corinthians 15:22 – For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
This Truth Makes
Whenever the word “death” is used in Scripture, its main meaning is “separation.” To “die” means to separate from something.
Sin has brought three types of death into the world.
Physical death is the separation of a man’s soul and spirit from his body. (1 Corinthians 15:20-21)
Spiritual death is the separation of sinners from God right now. (Genesis 3:8; Genesis 3:23; Isaiah 59:2)
Eternal death is the separation of unbelievers from God forever and ever. (John 8:24; Revelation 20:15; Revelation 21:8)
People who do not know Christ are spiritually dead right now. Although they have physical life, the Bible describes them as “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). The results of sin are awful, aren’t they?
