Often times when we read Genesis 3 we read that Eve was the one that was tricked first and ultimately caused the fall of man. But let me ask you a question. Where is Adam, while the serpent is tempting Eve? He's standing right there: "She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. Then he ate it too" (Gen 3:6 NLT) The Hebrew for "with her" means right there, elbow to elbow. Adam isn't away in another part of the forest; he has no alibi. He is standing right there, watching the whole thing unravel. What does he do? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. He says not a word, doesn't lift a finger. He won't risk, he won't fight, and he won't rescue Eve. Our first father- the first real man- gave in to paralysis. He denied his very nature and went passive. And every man after him, every son of Adam, carries in his heart now the same failure. Every man repeats the sin of Adam, every day. We won't risk, we won't fight, and we won't rescue Eve. *This isn't meant to be a preaching, just something interesting that i found. If it was a preaching, i would want to end with something more positive.
