The snake lied to Eve. Adam and Eve sinned. We are now infected with the selfishness, pride, snake nature still inside. We believe the Lord Jesus will soon crush Satan underneath our feet as Romans 16:19 says.
Well, Dominic, I'm not sure what Romans 16:19 has to do with what you are saying but, your reference does not fit the context of what you are saying. Rom 16:19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf, but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. (NKJV) And as far as Satan lying to Eve, In fact, Satan started his deception by asking a question of Eve, (Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?" NKJV)
I also would draw your attention to the fact that Eve added to the Command of God in reference to the "Tree of Good and Evil". And I would also point out that Eve was walking in her emotions, dictating her response to Satan. (Gen 3:2 And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; Gen 3:3 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.' ")
Secondly, I would point out that Adam standing beside Eve did not correct her in her response. And it was Adams actions that brought on the fall of man, not Eve. I think you will find that the command not to eat of the fruit from the 'Tree of Good and Evil' was given to Adam before Eve was created. (Gen 2:15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; Gen 2:17 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." NKJV) Enjoy Dominic.
Act 17:11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.(NASV)

I wanted to include Romans 16:20 which says that the God of Peace will soon crush Satan underneath your feet. I forgot to include that verse because I was thinking of the song that goes Romans 16 19 says, Romans 16 19 says Be excellent in what is good be innocent of evil and the God of Peace will soon crush Satan underneath your feet. That was the intent of God is our helper. Thank you for including your points teetop.
