    I believe that Adam and Eve's being tempted in the Garden of Eden is a perfect example of Satan tempting people through their minds.
  • James
    I feel and believe that as a Christian if Satan can tempt Adam and Eve to step outside the will of God. He can also get people to do the same. The only way to avoid this temptation is to stay in the word of God.
  • Apelu
    This story may be real or allegorical. Either way, it shows the danger of isolation (Eve being alone) and of engaging with the devil (the serpent more subtil). It shows man's propensity to blame the woman and the woman's propensity to be beguiled. It also shows there is consequence to sin and there is mercy with God.

    Before sin, apparently mankind could communicate with animals or with the devil!
