  • Why did God expel Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden? — J.A.

    This verse is often misinterpreted, as are many verses in Genesis. People think that God drove Adam and Eve out because he was angry, no longer valuing them.
    In certain non-Orthodox theology, the sin of Adam and Eve makes them absolutely wicked and perverse. In these twisted interpretations, God kicks out the sinners because they sicken him. God forbid! Nothing could be further from the truth.
    The image of God remains in mankind after the fall. After the fall God still loves mankind.
    As we’ve mentioned before, we do not inherit the guilt of Adam but the “fallen state,” that is aging, sickness, death and a tendency toward sin.
