I thank you! I'm here all week! Try the veal, etc.
Actually the fall was necessary for God's plan to take effect. This is what Orthodox Christianity rejects. If Adam hadn't fallen, he wouldn't have become as God knowing good and evil. He wouldn't have need for the tree of life which was already in the garden - so God did plan for the fall. God didn't create the sin, but he planned for it. Adam really had no choice if he wanted to progress.
