Question: The chronological order was this: God created the earth and universe, then man and Eve, then God planted the garden at Eden and placed Adam and Eve in it. Ezekiel 28 shows that Lucifer was created holy and placed at Eden. This seems that Lucifer was placed there and concieved his sin there. Please comments on this. Thank you.

Answer: We cannot say exactly when Lucifer was created. Job 38:4-7 indicates that the angels existed at the time of creation, which must have included Lucifer. Also, Genesis 2 indicates that Eve was brought forth after Adam was placed in the garden. Otherwise, we tend to agree with your chronology. We welcome other ideas on this subject.
