  • Adam and Eve: Reading their story as ours 


    This begins by stating that the story of Adam and Eve is true. But just how is it true?
    Taking the story literally causes a host of problems: Adam and Eve can’t be fit into what we know of the evolutionary process; how could Cain build a city; the confusion of the serpent with Satan; the association of sex with sin; Eve as culprit harms all women. The truth is revealed in seeing this as a story about you and me and every human—how we choose against God, wish ourselves to be God, and suffer the consequences.
