Bring unsure why there’s anything that can surprise me, I occasionally need to remind myself to be grateful I retain enough naivete for that to occur.
Case in point.
Genesis presents an unbroken historical account beginning with Adam and continuing through to Joseph in Egypt. We do not “spiritualize” historical passages (see Lesson 7). The New Testament consistently regards Adam and Eve as historical figures, pointing out that Jesus descended from Adam (Luke 3:38).
I have no desire to identify the author or source, though I will say it came from a WordPress blog. I’m saddened a person could fall to the depths of irrationality required to believe and even teach such obvious falsehoods. How can we be so weak, so foolish, so damaged as to support a faith system that feeds the perversion of intellect required to believe such tripe.
We are an inquisitive species and we are tenacious in our quest for knowledge. Imagine future generations of children raised to pursue truth thus.
The quest for truth ends when the seeker finds the answer to the questions of life—the one final answer that ultimately resolves every other question. The ultimate answer to every question—after all else is said and done—is “to glorify of God”
Imagine our reality filtered and parsed through a biblical worldview. Imagine a completely unreal reality.
