They were husband and wife and both were given the ability to make choices. Eve could make her own decisions, and so could Adam. When Satan enticed Eve to take the forbidden fruit and touch the forbidden tree, she did not blame Adam. She admitted that the serpent had enticed her and she sinned. Eve carried an equal responsibility with Adam. When God declared the punishment, it was slightly different for Eve than Adam. However, both lost the right to eat of the tree of eternal life.
Paul said that in the Kingdom of God, there is no difference between man and woman—they are equal before God. People of different races, statures and languages also come before God with no differences noted (Galatians 3:28 Galatians 3:28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
American King James Version×). There are always physical differences among people. Men vary from each other in many ways, and so do women. Of course, they also differ one from another in emotions, appearance and much more. It is in the eyes of God that all are declared equal spiritually and that they therefore carry their own responsibility for their actions. All must strive to please God and grow from the nature of humans into the glorious nature of God (2 Peter 1:4 2 Peter 1:4Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
American King James Version×). In His family, there will not be distinctions between male and female.
