Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
I have wondered for some time how to properly understand the story told in Genesis 2-3 of Adam and Eve's disobedience. While I still don't completely grasp it, I felt moved to share some recent thoughts on its meaning.
Although I have heard the story taken as an account of the creation of humankind, I believe it is too inconsistent with our knowledge of archaeology and paleontology to be a literally true record. Rather, I see it as an allegory or parable that portrays a truth about…Continue

A small number of us gathered by conference call to read and discuss the Works of Fox, beginning with Vol. 1.

If we died with him, we shall live with him;
if we endure, we shall reign with him.
If we deny him, he will deny us.
