The Fall of Man
When tempted by Satan, Adam and Eve abandoned fidelity to God, rebelling against Him. Through Adam’s sin, the human race fell from grace and subsequently inherited a sinful nature, becoming alienated from God. In union with Adam, all human beings are sinners by nature and choice and are thus alienated from God corporately and individually. Apart from God’s gracious intervention, the effects of this alienation include corruption in every aspect of our being, condemnation to physical and spiritual death, and consignment to God’s wrath.
