The Fall of Creation

On the day of the Fall, human nature became spiritually discerned. Man became naturally sinful because of the sin of Adam. But apart from human kind, the world itself “fell.” The ground became at enmity with man, and to this day, “the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now” (Rom. 8:22). But just as man will one day be redeemed, “creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (21). It’s amazing (and even frightening) how one man’s sin corrupted most of creation.
