“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The destructive power of sin is a painful and constant reminder of the Fall, the breaking of mankind’s perfect relationship with God. In the Genesis story, the Fall comes from Adam and Eve’s failure to obey God’s one command: to not eat the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Their actions bring about a curse from God and banishment from the perfect paradise of Eden.
However, if we do not accept a literalist reading of the Genesis account, what are the implications for the Fall? If Adam and Eve did not eat the fruit, where did the Fall originate? Could accepting BioLogos have devastating consequences for the origins of sin, a key facet of Christianity?
As we address in Question 15 on our site, a literalist reading of Genesis is not required to accept the Fall. Other ways of interpreting the passage exist, which still account for the existence of sin. In fact, these views have been accepted by many theologians and scholars, including the late C.S. Lewis.
