    If Adam was made perfect, why did he give in to temptation?


    Lou Newton, former Steel Mill Crane Designer and Physics Teacher

    Adam was not made perfect, he was made innocent. Innocent is the ability to be perfect. Only God is perfect in all of His ways. Perfection can not fail, and Adam choose to fail.

    To be perfect one would have to have all wisdom. Adam simply did not have all wisdom. Wisdom comes from God and not from men. If Adam would have sought God in all cases for wisdom, he could have stayed innocent. But Eve sought to have wisdom without God and that was not wise but foolish.

    "Not perfect but innocent" is the correct answer, but this fact reveals so much more.

    Some have made a point of claiming nothing for Adam was a sin except disobeying the LORD.

    We could let imagination go frenzied speculating on all the things Adam could do without rebelling against the LORD.

    Adam was free to do whatever he wished. Really?

    However, we only have to imagine one sin to trash the whole idea that only disobedience of the LORD would be a sin.

    Figuratively, the only thing Adam couldn't do was eat an apple is a very, very wrong conclusion.

    Imagine, if Adam killed Eve.

    What would have been his evening communion with the LORD been like?

    Accordingly, we must conclude the divine morality came packaged in the very first man, and each and every man ever since.

    Is this what the Apostle meant in Romans 1?
    For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,
    so that people are without excuse.

    (Romans 1:20 NIV)

    Therefore, Christians do not need to defend but just proclaim the divine morality revealed in the pages of the Bible, because it is already packaged into the makeup of every person - even those who rebel against the truth. In their heart, they know better and are choosing to side with their god for evil.
