Prior to the Fall there was no physical death. But the fossil record shows that death has been going on for millions of years. If Adam and Eve never existed and there was no literal Fall, how can sin exist? Does that mean Jesus didn’t exist and that He didn’t really die for us? These questions have been brought up by what I am reading (which is good by the way.)
Some of the authors have pointed out how Genesis was read in the ancient times, in a way people back then could understand. That was helpful. How did you guys handle this question?
