The reason why I’m asking this is because if the serpent didn’t ask such a question to Eve about eating the fruit of the tree, then Eve wouldn’t have been tempted!
BUT Eve could’ve not listened to the serpent no matter how tempting it was.
But we have free will so the serpent must’ve thought the way it would ask the question (“did God really say that?..”) would really get Eve to “fall”.
See where I’m at? Again, was it Eve’s fault for giving in to the temptation or was it the serpent’s fault for asking such a question that would be too tempting?
What do you think?
