[quote:2itcuedt][quote:2itcuedt]Before the fall, Adam enjoyed the gift of integrity, which meant absence of the conflict we now experience between our natural urges and the dictates of right reason.[/quote:2itcuedt]
Doesn’t this notion conflict with the belief that God gave us all free will? Or does this mean he didn’t give Eve the gift of integrity and that’s why she was tricked by the serpent?[/quote:2itcuedt]

I see no conflict, as while they where given all these gifts, they had the ability to use them as God intended or reject His law and forefit them by not utlizing the gifts. We know what they did.
