The Garden of Eden

In Genesis 2-3, Adam and Eve were kicked out of The Garden of Eden by God. Eve ate the forbidden fruit and she gave to her husband who ate it as well. They were both told by God to never eat the apple or they would die. Adam and Eve were kicked out because they did disobeyed God's command. Eve was deceived  by the serpent. Who's fault was it that they were kicked out? Eve. God told her what would happen if she ate the forbidden fruit but she didn't listen to him. It was her choice to and God doesn't have the power to control another being and their minds.  If God knows everything, then he knew this would happen. Why did God let this serpent inside The Garden of Eden? I understand that maybe God wanted to challenge Adam and Eve but they were both human and made a mistake. Humans sometimes follow what other humans do for whatever reason and that is what happened with Adam and Eve. Eve is a part of Adam and they were lovers. God would have known that the serpent would tempt Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. In the Genesis it says, "And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground-trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." God made that tree for a reason. He made it so it was pleasing to the eye and good for food. Of course Eve would eat it. Adam knew what was to obey and disobey but he just made the wrong choice and made a mistake. Again why did God let the serpent inside the Garden of Eden? It was his power to do so. You have to grow and learn from your mistakes. Eve and Adam were only human and had the power to control their thoughts and choices. God didn't. Eve was the reason why they were both kicked out.
