The original state of man; original sin and its consequences

God created our first parents to share in his love and friendship. Before original sin, Adam and Eve possessed a clear awareness of God's presence and enjoyed a profound and loving relationship with him. God gave them complete freedom in the garden of Eden with only one prohibition: they were forbidden to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and God warned them disobedience would result in death.

And then the serpent(the devil) tempted eve to eat the fruit and Adam and Eve lost their state of holiness and justice as well as their friendship with God. And now that original sin came Adam and Eve harmed not only them self but also their descendants. including us and introduce suffering and death, including death of the soul(sin), to the whole human race

THE WORD BECAME FLESH FOR EXPIATION, RECONCILIATION, AND RESTORATION

The word became flesh for expiation, reconciliation and restoration.

God became man first of all people with him himself by making expiation for sins. The fall of our first parents created a rift between God and the human race. since man had brought sin to the world justice demands a man should offer the atonement for sin. only Christ the son of man, could fulfill this necessary condition for redemption; only he is a divine person with divine nature and a human nature.
