Temptation

Adam and Eve

Samuel Clemens as Mark Twain wrote,

Adam was but human—this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple's sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden.

The mistake was not in forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent.

    Adam & Eve were God's problem children.

    By the way, Adam was a middle child which is probably why he blamed every thing on Eve. He didn't blame it on "The Word" (who is the eldest) because "he could do no wrong".

    Anyway, to get parental vengence God invented teenagers for Adam & Eve.

    "Vengence is Mine," sayeth the Lord!

    I agree they were God's problem children which proves that raising children really is the toughest job in the world!

    Would you please explain how you see Adam as a middle child?

    Thanks
