People have always loved the approval of others. But to give up part of the truth of God’s Word just to win that approval will bring on the judgment of God.
Claiming the book of Genesis, at least the first eleven chapters, to be “allegorical” or “mythical” will win the approval of many. But if there was no historic Adam and Eve and no historical sin and Fall, why should we believe in Jesus Christ?
Without original sin, there is no need for a virgin birth, no need for an atonement and certainly no resurrection. And as Paul said, if Christ is not risen from the dead, we are yet in our sins. But, if the record of Adam and Eve is a myth, is there any sin?
