Sin Never Has Good Results
Construction Zone 6: God's View of You
What happened after the first sin ("the Fall")?
After the fall, nobody could get close to God anymore, and nobody could get away from sin's curse of death. 1 Corinthians 15:22a – For as in Adam all die.
This Truth Makes
God promised Adam and Eve that if they ate of the fruit, they would die. Although they did not immediately die physically, their sinful choices actually brought not one but three types of death into the world.
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 man’s soul and spirit from his body. (1 Corinthians 15:20-21)
Spiritual death is the separation of man from God. (Genesis 3:8; Genesis 3:23; Isaiah 59:2)
Eternal (or “second”) death is the separation of man from God for ever and ever. (John 8:24; Revelation 20:15; Revelation 21:8)
People who do not know Christ might have physical life, but the Bible describes them as “dead in trespasses and sins.” The results of sin are awful, aren’t they?
