Did Adam and Eve go to heaven?

Adam Eve expelled 1

Q. Did Adam and Eve go to heaven? Were they saved?

A. The Bible did not specify the eternal destiny of Adam and Eve, so I can only give you my opinion. I believe they are in heaven, because:

• They knew the protoevangelism or first gospel. Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will crush your head, and you will strike His heel. They knew Eve’s offspring, the Savior, will crush the serpent’s head.
• God continued to care for them after they sinned. Gen 3:21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. Skin garments required the death of the sacrificed animal, a prefigure of substitutionary atonement.
• They continued to recognize God in their lives. Gen 4:1 Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.” Gen 4:25 Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.”
• Abel must have learned about God from his parents. Gen 4:4b The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering. The same can be said about Seth. Gen 4:26 Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of the LORD.

Based on the above, I believe that even though they disobeyed and introduced sin into the world, they repented and trusted God afterwards. I could be wrong, but I expect to see them in heaven.
