Isn’t woman really to blame for our sin?

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. Genesis 3:6-7

Yes, woman was to blame.

But so was man.

And Satan. It was a group effort.

SATAN devised the temptation, causing them to be disobedient.

EVE listened to Satan and followed through on the temptation.

God had told ADAM the rules of the garden, giving him a leadership position. He failed to communicate those rules effectively to Eve and, since it appeared that he was standing right there when it all happened, Adam failed to enforce the rule. He too willingly participated in the fruit eating, sharing in the sin.

Who did God blame?  Every one of them: Eve, Lucifer and Adam.  All of them suffered life-changing consequences.

No one party was totally to blame for sin entering our world.  Only God was innocent.
