Genesis 3 describes how temptation was introduced into the world, through Satan.How humans fell into sin and how people and the world has been affected in some way as a consequence.Relationships had been broken (Gen 3:16-24):
broken relations between people and God;
broken relations between one another; and
broken relations between people and the natural world, the environment.
All creation is suffering from the consequences of sin: however, hope in the form of a promise of redemption from God came immediately after the fall:
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.(Genesis 3:15)
