I think it is only right to look at Adam and Eve’s actions as we would childrens’. Some will simply say “it was impossible for them to sin, so they did not sin.” Others could maybe argue that while they were not guilty, what they did was wrong. Certainly many have faulted them and Eve in particular with unpardonable fault, responsible for every woe that has befallen mankind.
I have struggled with the declaration made by one of the prophets that Eve made a wise choice. How could she have made a wise choice when her eyes were not yet opened, when she did not know good and evil and therefore did not have agency?
If it were God’s will that the fruit be eaten when and by whom it was, would it be just for him to curse Lucifer for it? Or did he curse Lucifer because he was previously rebellious, and Lucifer’s intent was evil, even though it was all part of God’s plan?
Was Eve predestined to accept the fruit, as she did not possess agency?
I actually don’t really like the verbiage of “God’s plan”. If is frequently used as though everything that is happening to us is feeding into this grand plan. Maybe it is a way we need to think when we are going through stuff, but I don’t like it. Certainly there is the plan of salvation, but that is a plan more on the level of a process.
Why don’t I like the idea of “God’s plan?” I guess it’s a resistance to the idea that every bad thing that has happened to me had a reason.
