  • Not sure, but I do know that there is conflicting matter on the subject. Some say Lilith was evil, some say that She wouldn't be subserviant to Adam and was kicked out of the Garden of Eden. You want to talk about evil, try EVE going against what god said AND turning her hubby against what god said!!! If only Adam would have said no, there might have been a Third wife of adam!

  • Lilith is very controversial. There are many perspectives on whether she was good or evil. According to myth and legend, Lilith was the first woman, created before Eve. She was Adam’s absolute equal.


    In the Garden of Eden, long before the eating of the apple, the Holy One created the first human beings a man named Adam, and a woman named Lilith. Lilith said, "We are equal because we are created from the same earth."

  • The problem with Lilith is if Lilith existed, God was fallable.
