Somewhere is a bible verse that says essentially that Eve was deceived by the serpent in the garden, but Adam ate the forbidden fruit, knowing full well he was disobeying God's orders, so Eve is to be punished, but not Adam. Where is that verse, and WHY on earth? It is a defiance of logic as I see it to punish the one who was deceived, but to pardon the one who deliberately disobeyed. Can someone explain it to me please.

I believe you were wanting the specific verse in the New Testament that speaks to Adam and Eve. I gave you the verse, but forgot to tell you were it is. Sorry. It is 1 Timothy 2:13-14. The paragraph gives a breaf discription why it was said, but go to the link for a more detailed discription. Basically, Paul was giving instruction to Timothy in his letter speaking to that specific situation in Ephesus. It was a strong, dramatic statement to help Timothy get things under control until Paul could get there. There were false teachings going on there and some believe that Paul was speaking to the false teaching that Eve was created first.

Because of the sexism of the day. Women were only considered to be property, only for sex, servitude and bearing of male children to carry on the family bloodlines. Women were beneath men and they needed a reason why. So Eve was the big culprit and tempted perfect man.
