I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

@Flimzy "Adam never existed, and the story is a metaphor" - Do you claim this to be possible within the context of the Bible or outside of it?

"...his disobedience was according to the Bible" - What do you mean by this last phrase in your answer?

comment Why did God need to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden in the first place?
So, the question is still there: Why on earth He needed to plant that dangerous tree in the garden?

comment How do we know that Satan, Lucifer, and Devil are the same guy?
How can we be sure that what Jesus says in Mark 10:18 refers to what is described in Isaiah 14:12?

comment Why did God hide away the fact that He had the Son in the Old Testament times?
@user1361315 - "Read Luke 1:1, he is claiming to give his full account" - Sure, and you do need to give a full attention to his account, that is, to read the continuation of that account - the book of Acts (Acts 1:1), in which among other things he mentions that early followers of Jesus were praying to Jesus.

@user1361315 - "Meaning if Mathew was with Jesus, and he is writing his account of his life, it is kind of important to mention something like: "Oh by the way, he is God in the flesh and part of the trinity"" - Matthew's putting God, Son and the Holy Spirit on the same level in the very end of his gospel is the clear indication of the equality of the Three. Ironically, unlike Mark and Luke, both Matthew and John were with Jesus.

@user1361315 - "Why doesn't Mark say these things, its kind of important no?" - So, just because Mark doesn't mention this, you are about to discard what John mentions?!!! No book of the Bible contains the whole Bible, you know.

@user1361315 - "How can David be begotten, and then Jesus be the ONLY begotten" - It's just so simple: The ONLY begotten in the divinity, not in humanity. Bible says that God has many sons, however, all those many sons are not divine, not equal to God, and Bible says that God has ONLY One, that is, the only begotten Son who is divine and equal to God.

@user1361315 - "Sure, but David was also begotten" - Sure, but David has never been the ONLY-begotten and has never been considered as equal to God or at least making himself equal to God. Jesus, however, was. See my reply to you above.

comment What “new-to-protestants” things has the Eastern Orthodox Church acquired with time?
@curiousdannii - "Do things which are shared by the Roman Catholic church count" - Sure. Of course, they also count.

@Daи - All right. I will unaccept it for now and will wait for some more answers.

comment What “new-to-protestants” things has the Eastern Orthodox Church acquired with time?
@Daи - "The current answer is abysmal and does not answer the question. I'm not even sure why it was accepted" - I accepted this question because once in stackexchange somebody scolded me for not accepting answers for a long time saying that that was a bad practice causing me to be shunned upon by the community. However, I think the point about non-sainthood in the answer does hit the mark.
