Destruction from a single sin

Ibn al Qayyim said:

“Oh you who are misled into believing that Allaah is always merciful, Shaytaan (the
devil) was cursed forever and expelled from that which he was in because of a simple
order to prostrate.

What was Adam’s sin? Was it not a small sin? Was it a big sin? By his sin, was Adam
not expelled to earth from the garden (paradise) ? Was it not because of a small
morsel of food?

Does it not show that a small sin can destroy one forever? As was the case with
Iblees (the devil)”
