Quote from Finkelstein:
Nonsensical statement, when Adam had Cain as a child he was already tossed out the Garden of Eden and became imperfect, therefore they were both imperfect.
It is presumed by many that both Adam and Eve were somehow "perfect" before their disobedience. That they then became "imperfect" as a consequence.
But, they hadn't yet eaten of the Tree of Life before their expulsion.
Before disobedience they obviously weren't immune to doubtful or sinful thoughts.
Perhaps, in the final analysis, they did just as they were expected to do. After all, Our Father couldn't have been surprised. He knows all things before they occur.
It is all an essential element of the Grand Plan. As is Satan and the disobedient Angels who followed him. As is our crazy World today before its conclusion.
Our lives may truly be just beginning. Death and Resurrection have a Grand Purpose.
