Fall of Angels and Fall of Mankind


Here’s a hypothetical question related to the connection of the fallen angels and the Original Sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden with Satan present. If Lucifer and the demons had not fallen, could Original Sin still have occurred??? Thanks and God Bless.


Yes, though it would have happened differently if it did. Humans were not forced into sinning, they were just helped along. It’s quite possible that they could have stumbled upon sin on their own anyway.
