“For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,”
King James Version (KJV)

The creature was made subject to vanity: means Adam who was created in the image of God and the entire human race became useless and unable to please God. NOT WILLINGLY: here means man did not choose to be separated from God but rather loose the privilege of pleasing God from the garden of Eden. BUT BY REASON OF HIM THAT HATH SUBJECTED THE SAME IN HOPE: here the bible is talking about the hope in Jesus who has secured our redemption. That though we missed it but we now have it.

Eve's "consequences would be for the Fall when Adam disobeyed GOD". A lot happened before Adam and Eve like the fallen angles that The book of Enoch tells us about, "why not the whole truth". Ben's Right you can't get to the Father, FATHER GOD except through the Son JESUS CHRIST who made us RIGHTEOUS......... Only that way are we Right in CHRIST JESUS.

There is none good but God. So, when Adam chose to follow his own way, he chose in fact to be separate from god and he automatically became evil because of what I said, that only in God is goodness!
Therefore, God had not decided what would happen to people and the world because of that sin.decided what would happen to people and the world because of that sin. All of this are consequences of the separation from God.
I mean that when God said to Adam that in the day he will eat, he shall die, God had only warned him about the consequences of separation from Him.

So it seems like that God had decided how the result and consequenses would be from the FALL when Adam disobeyed God(Rom 8:12).
Long before Adam sinned, God had already decided what would happen to people and the world because of that sin.
So in a sense, this world is a perfect world where people have to chose to follow God by accepting Jesus Christ as personal Savior.
