Eve’s Failure

Last night I talked with a woman pastor.
She has a distinct point of view on the Bible. Precisely, more than a single point. There were so many things that I found interesting in her talking, too many to write here now, so I will quote one thing.

If we read the Bible, we women will soon be beaten by the sin of Eve, eating the forbidden Fruit and let his husband eat one too. We might think it heavy as if this woman have owed all responsibility that mankind has been shuttered out of the Paradise.

Yet she told us, “If God had really hated Eve to eat the Fruit, He could have stopped her. God makes the history, in which people sometimes obey Him, sometimes not. How about thinking that God had sent Adam and Eve to the new World from the Garden? ”

That’s wonderful. Yet I still think that Eve had made a mistake. She was too easily talked out by the snake. She should have asked him, “So why don’t you eat it by yourself?”

  1. Excellent point. Eve made a mistake but God held Adam as the responsible party because he deliberately disobeyed and rebelled against God’s authority. He was not deceived, he knew exactly what he was doing and wanted to be “like God”, knowing good from evil

    1 Timothy 2:13-14 (NKJV)
    13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.

    • Recently I found Jesus tells in John 16:21 “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world” and I was so moved though I myself not have a child….. God gave women pain in giving birth, due to Eve’s sin, but finally blessed women through His only Son’s words.
