I thought I would start on new post on this question I asked in another. Did Eve tell a lie in the garden? First, God's command to Adam in Genesis 2. Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Now, what Eve said to the serpent in Genesis 3. Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Notice in Eve's response that she added to God's word. God never said they could not touch the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, only that they could not eat of it. Did Eve lie here? Did she make a mistake? I would like to see what others think. Now, I'll be right up front, I am using this as an argument against the Calvinistic doctrine of Total Depravity or Inability. I am trying to show that man always had the ability to sin, even before he actually did so.
