Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Why Was the Serpent in the Garden of Eden?

host Adriel Sanchez aired November 22, 2022

Episode 1103 Show Notes 

From the Show

Eden is not heaven, that confirmed space of righteousness for all time. This is a place of testing. Some people have referred to Eden as a probationary period, where God gives free will to choose to follow him and a commandment to “work and keep the garden.” And this was a priestly work.

Why Was the Serpent In the Garden of Eden?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Gideon asked for signs to prove God’s will, was he wrong to do this? If not, should we still do this in the Christian life?
  2. If the Garden of Eden was perfect, why was there something that could cause sin in the garden?
  3.  If I disagree with some of the theology that is taught in my church, should I look for a new place to worship?
  4. How do you explain the trinity to muslims?
  5. How should we understand the reference to angels in 1 Corinthians 11:10?
