The Fall of Man explains how humanity moved from a state of innocence and harmony with God to a state of sin and estrangement.
In the Garden of Eden, God created the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, and placed them in a paradise. They were given the freedom to eat from any tree in the garden except for the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.” God warned them that if they ate from this tree, they would surely die.
However, the serpent, (Satan), tempted Eve and persuaded her to eat the forbidden fruit from the tree. She, in turn, offered it to Adam, and he also ate it. As a result, they gained knowledge of good and evil, but they also became aware of their nakedness and felt shame. This act of disobedience, known as the Original Sin, led to their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
God punished Adam and Eve, and all of humanity, with various consequences, including toiling for food, experiencing pain in childbirth, and ultimately, death. The fall of man introduced sin and separation from God into the world, which has affected all of humanity. Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and redemption offer a way to reconcile with God and overcome the consequences of the fall of man.
