What would you ask Adam?  Here are my questions.

Why didn't you say anything?

Too often we blame your wife for partaking of the forbidden fruit.  But you were there…RIGHT THERE! The scriptures say that, "she took some and ate it.  She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it."  (Gen. 3.6)  So the whole time Eve was being deceived you stood by in hushed silence watching her.  Why didn't you say anything?

How long did you wait?

John Eldredge was astute in pointing out that, "there was a moment in Eden when Eve was fallen and Adam was not:  she had eaten, but he yet had a choice…Adam chose Eve over God."  Wow…you sat there with the fruit in hand and pondered life with Eve in a fallen state verses life with God untarnished.  How long did it take before life apart from God seemed more desirable?

What was it like to walk with God?

You spent leisure time with the Creator.  Did he explain the platypus and mosquitoes?  It must have left a lasting impression on you for it seems that you told your great great great great great grandson about it.  Is that why Enoch decided to give it a try? (Gen. 5.21-24)
