Was there a ‘Fall’?

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.
