comment If Adam and Eve were perfect, why did they choose to sin?
Perfect in what way? If Eve was not free to do wrong neither could she be truly free to do right. God wants us to choose him freely, not as robots.

comment If Adam and Eve were perfect, why did they choose to sin?
The only problem is that the word will very easily be used in two different places to mean two slightly different things, which can make a complete answer as difficult as keeping track of all your puzzle pieces when you color them the same shade. In other words, it helps if the terms of the question make important distinctions easy to see. One question I have right away: when you say 'without sin,' do you mean that they had not sinned up to that point, or that they were not predisposed to sin, or that they were in fact predisposed to not sin?

For a complete answer, good definitions are indispensable. There are all kinds of possible implications and meanings in the word 'perfect.' What I think of as perfection off the top of my head might not even be relevant to the question. It's important to notice that the scripture reads, 'God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' Can you elaborate on exactly what you mean by perfect?
