DISOBEDIENCE: FIRST HUMAN DISOBEDIENCE. GEN 3:1-24

‘Sin’ means deviation from the laws of good to bad. This means that sin is deviation from right to wrong; doing the things that goes contrary to the laws of nature and laws of God. E.g. stealing, murder, breaking the laws of the land, fighting etc. Sin came into the world as a result of the disobedience of Adam and Eve who disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit.Since then, sin has become a major thing in the world.

 

After the creation Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. God satisfied them with everything but commanded them not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil which was in the midst of the garden. They were deceived by the serpent and ate the fruit of the tree.

God cursed them and drove them away from the garden. This is known as the fall of man. Adam was cursed and told to eat from his sweat. The woman as well was cursed and commanded to conceive and bear children in pain. The serpent was also cursed and commanded to crawl on his belly and eat dust of the earth. God put enmity between the serpent and the woman. The general consequences of their sin are death, pain and struggle.
