The 1689 on Sin (6.1)

Today Joe and Jimmy are talking about the “Fall of Man, of Sin, and of the Punishment Thereof” from the 1689 Confession, chapter 6, paragraph 1. The guys consider man’s original state of righteousness, the covenantal context of life in the garden before the fall, the fall of Satan, the nature of satanic temptation and deception, and God’s purpose in it all. And how should these truths impact us experientially?
