I apologize if this particular topic has been brought up. If so, if someone could link me to it and then close this thread that would be great. I was talking to my sister yesterday and she was talking about a Bible study they are doing at her church on Genesis. In particular we were talking about Chapter 3. I made a joking comment to her saying "well, Eve screwed it up for all of us" She took that lightly but said that wasn't accurate at all and that Adam was there with her during the temptation and they sinned at the same time. Well that threw up a red flag to me. I recall doing a study a few years ago about Genesis 3, and that was a topic that came up. The defense was verse 6 were it says "she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her"...implying that Adam was with her during the temptation. I have a hard time believing this. I don't understand why verses 1-5 would be written the way they were, excluding any mention of Adam, if he had been with Eve. Then, if you look further in Chapter 3 when God calls them out, Adam blames Eve for his sin, not Satan. It doesn't make sense to me that he would blame Eve, had he been there during the temptation. Then when Got punishes Adam, God's direct quote in verse 17 is "because you have listened to the woman"...and not "because you have listened to the serpent" So what am I missing here? God's punishement to both of them was different, for different types of sin. If they had both been deceived would this not be the case?
