Why did God allow Adam and Eve to sin?
This is a deep mystery. All that we know is that God, when He created mankind, He did not make them like robots that automatically obey all commands. He gave them the ability to choose freely whether to obey God or not. That is why He gave them the choice of abstaining from eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (and so obeying
God), or eating the fruit (and so disobeying God). Now the vital question is: God knew beforehand that man would disobey Him. Why did He allow it? We must of course understand that it was not the will of God that man should sin. If we say that, it will mean that we make God responsible for sin ö and that can never be true. But the question why He did not intervene is a very deep mystery that we cannot explain. God alone knows what He is doing and why. His
thoughts are not our thoughts. But we must remember that God, who is a just God who punishes sin, also revealed Himself after the fall as a God with amazing grace, because He immediately looked for the sinners and promised that the seed of the woman (Christ) would crush the head of the snake (Satan) ö Genesis 3:15. This happened when Jesus died on the cross and arose as the triumphant Christ, the Conqueror of Satan and sin (Luke 23:33 ö 24:35).
Whosoever believes the Gospel, is saved forever from the power of Satan and sin. You also have the ability to make good and bad choices, and to live with the result of those choices. Where you made the wrong choice, Christ has opened the way to full forgiveness for you. Come to Him with your heavy load of care, and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).
