Was there a ‘Fall’?
Christians say the world is bad. Bible scholars don’t.
Have you noticed that impressions of the Bible’s Creation story tend to be weirdly unrelated to the text? Two white people eating an apple by a tree? Nope. Blaming the woman? Didn’t happen. Men told to dominate women? Sorry. And is there a ‘Fall’? Christians like to say so, but in Genesis 1, God says the world is good! He never changes his mind.
“For everything God created is good,” as Paul affirms in 1 Timothy 4:4. No fundamental change of status occurs. The “Fall” is a myth.
