The Original Sin

Our topic is "The Original Sin."
Questions to be answered are as follows:
  1. Whose law was broken?
  2. Who determines the penalty?
1. Whose law was broken?
1st sin is in Genesis 3.7 "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons."
They found themselves naked: But the Bible says:

The thing to remember here is that the sin was against God and not satan; consequently, we must meet or satisfy God's justice or law to get back in his graces - not satisfy satan. satan has absolutely NO role in this process! We don't either. It doesn't matter what we think. We must do it God's way.

2. Who determines the penalty? They knew that God would not be fooled so they hid, but God went looking for them.
When man hides God seeks - Aren't you glad !!
Remember that-- you can't hide from God. They died spiritually (spirit couldn't commune with God) as soon as they sinned and they were looking for physical death when God found them. But instead, God put a curse on man.

God then provided a way of escape for them by killing innocent animals and shedding their blood and providing coats of skin for them (the first shedding of blood for sin).
God provides the sacrifice to atone for their sins.
If this seems unfair, think how "much more" unfair it seems that "Christ died for the ungodly" --Romans 5:6.
Throughout the Old Testament the guilt of the transgressor is passed from himself to the sacrifice and the innocence is transferred by imputation to the transgressor.
