The way I see it, Eve made three mistakes.
- She listened to a perspective other than God’s.
- She entered into conversation with the serpent.
- She acted on the basis of self-direction vs God’s instruction.
Any of these alone would led to spiritual death. The combination of these errors was tantamount to generational genocide. The good news is our return was foreordained. Repent, reconcile, restore. There’s no better time to do so than the present.
