the 2nd sin
Isn't it interesting to wonder? I mean what do you suppose would have happened to Adam and Eve if they had accepted responsibility for their sin? God simply asked them, "who told you that you are naked?" What would God's response have been had Adam 'fessed up? "I did, Father, and I am sorry for breaking your rule." Would God have responded with forgiveness? We will never know, because both Adam and Eve compounded their rebellion by seeking to absolve themselves of their misdeed and blaming someone else. Adam blamed Eve and Eve blamed the snake. How much better off we are when we accept responsibility and seek forgiveness.
