Truthbeing :They both "fell short of the glory of God"They paid the ultimate price which we all must acknowlege if we do NOT reach that stage of Perfection we are all commanded to achieve.Jesus "the man" & Mary"the woman" shows us that way.Jesus almighty God demands it of us.

Adam sinned with his eyes wide open. He knew exactly what he was doing. He knew that he was outright disobeying God yet he went straight ahead and did it. Satan did not need to deceive him.

Shortsighted,as so many people who sin are.He took the pleasure of the moment,and lost the many blessings which were to come.Just as sinners do now.Adam was the portal whereby sin entered and fell upon all humankind.Romans5:12 Wherefore as by one"man"sin entered into the world,and death by sin;-.Whatever Eve did Adam was held responsible for the sin-fall of man in the Word of God.

Both Adam and Eve allowed themselves to be deceived, so one is just as equally guilty as the other. If I jumped off a bridge to certain death or injury and asked you to do the same....of course I'M being stupid, but if you follow me knowing it's wrong, then you would be just as stupid (maybe more so).

I don't think that Adam was dumb, stupid, trapped, lured or enticed. He was disobedient because God had only given him one 'thou shalt not' and he still did it. The bible doesn't make it clear whether God told Eve or Adam told Eve but we know for certain that God told Adam face to face so he was without excuse. To then try to blame 'the woman Thou gavest me' made him a coward also. So there are the 2 words 'disobedient coward'.

Disobedient and weak. He was so foolish that the bible records that he didn't take the wrap himself! He first blamed it on God! "Its the woman thou gavest me."

Disobedient, ungodly, rebellious.

Dumb? No, that's not the word. It implies Adam was ignorant or oblivious to the danger & he wasn't. He knew exactly what God had told him.
Stupid? I like "stoopid" better. It best describes Adam's action, i.e., to know better & do the wrong thing anyway.

If it is exactly two words that you are looking for I'd say they are ORIGINAL SIN. I used to be puzzled that in the New Testament it says that Eve was deceived but then I realised that Adam wasn't deceived. He quite deliberately sinned and then tried to blame 'the woman you gave to me'. God told him face to face before making Eve and then he told Eve (I presume). She obviously knew anyway because she told the serpent what God had said.

Adam dropped the ball and let Eve take the lead. He also put her above God, and chose to go down with her rather than taking the chance of losing her.
