Learn to Play Blues Harp Harmonica
Satan and Adam

http://www.satanandadam.com/ Satan and Adam is an unlikely guitar and harmonica duo that built up a sound and an audience playing on the streets of New York in the 1980s. The duo’s unique sound came from electric guitarist Sterling (Satan) Magee’s propulsive, funky rhythm sound and the percussion instruments he played with his feet, combined with Adam Gussow’s fat-toned harmonica playing. Magee sings with the fervor of a southern Soul shouter. In addition to recording several albums, the duo were included in U2’s movie Rattle and Hum. – Tom Heyman Harping The Blues!

    A uterus. Let’s face it, the ancients who came up with the story didn’t give women credit for crap. Just like the Lot story when he got hammered and knocked up his own daughters, but THEY were the bad ones, not him. Let’s not forget when Moses, Aaron and Miriam all screwed up that Miriam got the short end of the stick: Numbers 12:9-11
    9And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
    10And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
    11And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.

    Eve like every other women in this world was weak.

    Like a Lion Satan chooses a weak prey, in this case the woman.

    because she would do the dishes after.

    but seriously, the answer is irrelevant because it never happened.

    The real question is what did the ancient Hebrew tribes see in women, that they chose to blame one for the "fall" in their creation myth?

    The answer is that women, unlike men, ALWAYS know that the baby is theirs. Men have always felt compelled to control women (specifically women’s sexuality) in order to control the nagging doubt that they do back-breaking labor for most of their lives to support offspring that are not their own. The subjugation of women is all about controlling who works to feed who’s kids.

    Oh, and ancient people were completely freaked out by the menstrual cycle, since they had no idea what it meant, and only women do it.

    It really is as simple as that.

    Adam and Eve were together. Genesis 2:6 says Eve gave the fruit to her "husband with her."

    Satan spoke to Eve, because Eve hadn’t heard the command from God herself. It’s easier to tempt someone to disobey a command they haven’t heard themselves. In Genesis 2:17, God tells Adam not to eat from the tree of life, and in verse 19 He creates Eve.

    I don’t know what Adam & Eve story you’re reading, but the one from the Hebrew Scriptures doesn’t have Satan in it. There is a *serpent* which tempts Eve, but that’s a serpent, not Satan. Satan appears in the story of Job, and elsewhere, listed by his name: Ha-Satan (the opponent). He’s not the serpent and he’s not named "Lucifer."

    Satan didn’t tempt Eve. The reason you are struggling with the question is because it is not answered in the Biblical texts. Read the genesis story carefully, and you will find the Satan is never mentioned, but rather a plain old serpent (Hebrew NHSh). All it says about the serpent is that he is cunning…not evil.
    To lend you a bit of an answer, there was nothing accidental about what happened, thus the serpent is described as cunning. Keep in mind this is a tree of the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil; so both characters would have been equally naive whether temptation comes from a serpent or a woman.
    Also keep in mind, this genesis account is what is called an etiological narrative: It describes why things are the way they are (i.e. why women have labor pains, why men have to work hard to plow fields to get food, why we are ashamed to be naked, and why the snake doesn’t have legs and crawls on the ground – remember he gets cursed by God) So the text has specific questions in mind, and those are, for the most part, the only types of questions it addresses.

    There is wisdom in old age, so Satan clearly saw Eve as less experienced than Adam. It is true today Satan attacks young people because they are by their age less knowledgeable about the pitfalls of this life. Proverbs 22v15 says"Foolishness is tied up with the heart of a boy; the rod of discipline is what will remove it far from him.
    The apostle Paul said in Ephesians 6v1"Children, be obedient to YOUR parents in union with [the] Lord, for this is righteous: 2 “Honor your father and [your] mother”; which is the first command with a promise: 3 “That it may go well with you and you may endure a long time on the earth.

    So we all do well to listen to what God says to us through the pages of the bible and avoid the trap that Eve fell into (Proverbs 3v5)

    Probably saw an in with Adam. If he had tempted Adam and he had gone to her with the fruit she would have probably called him a dumbass and beaned him with it. This way Eve got Adam to do what Satan wanted.

    One states that Satan could not have been the snake as portrayed in Genesis:You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
    Eze 28:14 You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy height of God where you were; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
    Eze 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
    Eze 28:16 By the multitude of your goods they have filled your midst with violence, and you have sinned. So I cast you profaned from the height of God, and I destroy you, O covering cherub, from among the stones of fire.
    Eze 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have spoiled your wisdom because of your brightness. I will cast you to the ground; I will put you before kings, that they may behold you.
    Eze 28:18 By the host of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trade, you have profaned your holy places;
    So, the bible states that Lucifer had ruled on the Earth, that from Ezekiel we get a clear description of what Lucifer was and what he did to cause himself to be in Eden and tempt Eve.
    Eve as was mentioned by an answerer not warned by her husband not to eat of the fruit from the tree of Good and Evil. Adam was responsible towards his wife in the moral upbringing. The fact that Adam did not tend the Garden tells you also he was not doing his job that would’ve kept Satan the serpent of old from entering into the Garden in the first place.

    The Logical Jedi

    Adam existed for quite some time before Eve was created. The Bible says that God walked with Adam, no doubt conversing with him the whole time. Adam received his instructions directly from God. It is assumed that these were then repeated by Adam to Eve after her creation. If you notice Eve’s response to the serpent, there is an added clause in the directive that they should not even "touch" the tree. The Bible record shows that no such directive was given to Adam. It is logical to conclude that Adam gave this instruction to Eve to reduce temptation and safeguard their standing with God. The serpent undoubtedly observed this and concluded that Eve would more likely question information from Adam before Adam would question information from God. So, the serpent cast doubt into Eve by craftily asking, "Is it REALLY SO that GOD SAID you should not eat…" By asking in that way, he was reminding her that she never really heard the command straight from God’s voice, thereby suggesting that Adam, a mere man, had deceived her.
    It is also quite possible, though unverifiable, that the reason she took some of the fruit to Adam was to see it he would eat it himself, thinking that his motive for telling her not to eat was purely a selfish one, so that he could have the "forbidden fruit" all to himself. Otherwise, why would Eve care if Adam ate or not? Why else would she take some to him?

    Little Red Riding Hood and The Logical Jedi have some good points.

    However, there is at least one important point that no one has mentioned: "Adam was not deceived" (1 Timothy 2:14).

    Satan (and the Serpent WAS Satan, as Riding Hood and Revelation 12:9 & 20:2 point out) had certainly studied the situation to map out the weaknesses in the couple. And he saw these:
    1) Eve didn’t have the correct warning (whether she was instructed incorrectly or confused the message in her own mind, it is not clear) — leaving an opportunity for doubt to enter in;
    2) Women (in general) are more susceptible to deception than men (I know I’ll get flack for that, in this "politically correct" but spiritually corrupt society);
    3) Adam’s weakness was Eve — in the same way women can bend the will of their men even today.

    Though Eve was deceived, Adam was not (1 Timothy 2:14); however, Adam allowed himself to be swayed by his wife ("Then to Adam He [God] said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife…" — Genesis 3:17). The implication here is, that Adam allowed his wife to "convince" him to do what he knew was wrong. And because Adam KNEW he was doing wrong, his is the greater sin (Luke 12:47-48).

    Satan attacks us at our weaknesses — whether directly or through others.

    Relevant Scriptures:
    1 Timothy 2:14 — And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.

    Genesis 3:17 — Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife,

    Warning to Adam:
    Genesis 2:16-17 — And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

    Message Eve Had:
    Genesis 3:2 — And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ "

    Luke 12:47-48 — And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
