What was the first sin which the world came to know?
The first sin which the world recognised was that of pride…
It was the first sin into which Satan fell when he said: “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God… I will be like the Most High. ” (Is. 14:13-14).
This was the first sin which mankind was attacked by, when the devil said to Eve: “you will be like God, knowing good and evil. ” (Gen. 3:5).
When the Lord was incarnated, He fought this sin through His humility, by taking the form of a slave and becoming like a human being in His appearance, and by being born in a stable, and permitting the d`evil to test Him.
