Dear M.A.P.

I believe it comes down to free will.  God made it clear not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  And man made a choice.  Without free will, can we really be alive?  We could be alive like a plant, but not sentient.  God didn't create man to be robots.  He gave us life.  So we have free will.  It's not the devil's fault man fell.  It's man's fault.
