The immediate consequences of Adam’s decision.
“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sawed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” Genesis 3:7. The first thing that happened is that humankind, in Adam, lost God’s image, and the glory of God no longer covered them. Because humankind’s spirit has become a sinner, the Holy Spirit departed from Adam and the woman, therefore, from the entire humankind. The Holy Spirit in man was replaced by “I,” the human ego. “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, … having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.” 2 Timothy 3:2 – 5.
The entire humankind became sinner, in the first man Adam. “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.” Romans 5:12. And, because of sin, the entire humankind became worthless. “All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” Romans 3:12.
The very moment Adam made a deliberate, intelligent decision, the spirit of humankind God put in Adam became a hopeless sinner. From that point on forward, all of humanity became a powerless transgressor. No effort by Adan himself or by any future member of humankind could have reversed Adam’s decision. Even humankind functioning as one, before the tower of Babel, could not have changed the sinful and condemned human nature. Because of the deliberate decision by the human spirit, God put in Adam; the entire humankind was condemned to eternal death, no way out. Thus, the entire humankind became enslaved in Satan’s kingdom of sin and darkness. The advanced reality experiments in quantum cosmology, as we understand it, imply that intelligent decisions are irrevocable. Such is the requirement of the law God established before the creation of our universe.
“Can an Ethiopian change his skin and leopard his spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.” Jeremiah 13;23. By its disobedience in Eden’s garden, humankind separated itself from God, the only source of life. Humankind would have to die instantly had God not put it under the Grace. God did this because He loves humankind and has determined to restore it to Himself as His children. How did God restore humanity to himself?
