Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law.
Sin is breaking God's Law of Love. Sin or evil first entered the world through Satan and his followers, the fallen angels; this was during the Pre-Adamic Age. A third of the angels, led by Satan, sinned and were thrown down to earth resulting in cataclysmic consequences for the earth.
After God renewed the face of the earth, sin then spread from fallen angels to the human world. This happened in the Garden of Eden when Eve and Adam ate the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, when tempted and deceived by Satan. As a result of man's original sin, every descendant of Adam and Eve, with the exception of Jesus Christ, is born with a sinful nature.
