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.
Just what is biblical authority? How is the authority of the Bible derived? Who determines the outcome? This video examines the ways the Bible has been used through the centuries to order people’s lives and the church. Depending upon the person or authority yielding the power to determine biblical teachings, it was often abused. It will be seen that the Bible has never been able to successfully achieve unity on even the smallest of matters. This, however, is not the Bible’s problem—the problem is the way the Bible has been interpreted or abused. Another important consideration is in what we expect from the Bible. Once we determine just what the Bible is intended to be, or can become, we will eliminate all the dead ends we’ve been forced down and find our way into what its legitimate claim on us is.
