For all the thinking I have done on Genesis, is it possible that we are all trying too hard? That the Genesis account is simply a story to give Humans a rough idea? A parable? God often used them to help us see. Is it also possible that Paul is just using this story/parable to help us see?
He states that sin entered through one man, well, there is no doubt that a first sin occurred, as Humans were not always around. Sin had to start somewhere…
I may never know the answers to my questions, no matter how they burn.
For all of my negative accusations, rebellion and angry thoughts. For all the ways the Bible can be interpreted, the base message is clear, and Christ’s teachings are perfect. Live by them and you will do no wrong. Even if the Bible was one day discredited, I would still love and desire to hold onto them.
My life… Our lives might be dark and uncertain, even horrifying… But there is one hope for us. One tiny light in the darkness we can hold onto, and that hope is Jesus of Nazareth.
I don’t know how anyone can live this life without that.
