Part 3 - The Fall and the Restoration
Overview: The Fall of Man
The sanctifying work of Christ has made a way for mankind to be restored into fellowship with God. A look at the fallen place of man and how he got there will help to understand what one is being separated from and being restored back unto. The state of the world is called "this present evil age." The fall of Adam and Eve created this condition. The gospel cannot be fully appreciated apart from this. Jesus divided the makeup of man into four parts: his heart, his soul, his mind, and his strength. In each of these areas mankind rebelled against God in the fall of the human race. As Lucifer elevated himself to be an equal with God, so has mankind done in these four parts of his being.
