That since Adam and Eve’s fall into sin, every human born into the world inherits a weakened nature, desiring to do good but also being tempted towards evil. And during the course of a life time through the deceptive blend of good and evil, to some degree all humans commit wrong against the standard of God’s holy law. In our weakened condition, compared to God’s perfect standard of goodness, our tainted goodness can never commend our lives to God and amend His broken law.

That God did not forsake Adam and Eve even though they had sinned against Him, failing their test of love and loyalty. Meeting with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, God promised them a Deliverer would appear on Planet Earth and challenge Satan’s claim over fallen humanity. And this promised Deliverer was to be the Father’s only begotten Son. The Son was given to fallen humanity even before Planet Earth and mankind were created.
"So the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life. And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”" Genesis 3:14-15
