Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 27

Question 27

What misery did the fall bring upon mankind?

The fall brought upon mankind the loss of communion with God, (Gen. 3:8,10,24) his displeasure and curse; so as we are by nature children of wrath, (Eph. 2:2–3) bond slaves to Satan, (2 Tim. 2:26) and justly liable to all punishments in this world, and that which is to come. (Gen. 2:17, Lam. 3:39, Rom. 6:23, Matt. 25:41,46, Jude 7)
