Strikes me as lame (to say the least), but then again I'm a bit of a grumpy old man.

(If Greg Baus is reading, I'd love to know your opinion about this. Sincerely).

I think I'd give you a good run in the grumpy old man stakes! I'm much gumpier and much older!

I thought it was a good picture of creation, fall and redemption. It has its flaws, but it moved me!

Paul said...

Do you think that we can apply creation - fall - redemption to individuals?

Steve Bishop said...

Why not? We're created, fallen and redeemed creatures, no?

Paul said...

I am tempted to interpret Genesis that way; as happening in all of us individually.

But what about original sin? Are we created good? And arent we a *new* (not *renewed*) creature in Christ?

(Just throwing some questions out, of the top of my head).

Eh, which isn't to say that they are rhetorical...
