Question: How is the Creation Story not to be taken literally when Apostle Paul said sin came from Adam?
Just as sin entered the world through one man, and death resulted from sin, therefore everyone dies, because everyone has sinned.
It's clear as day, and Paul was an Apostle from God who spoke with the words God gave him. So doesn't this mean that ALL Christians must believe that Adam was really one man, and in doing so, the earth really is only a few thousand years old?
It's either you're Christian or you're not, you must choose. ^_^
So you take my full name now eh? Well, you pic is still crappy.

But the heavens and earth that now are, by the same word of God, have been reserved for fire, and are being kept for the Day of Judgment, and for the destruction of ungodly men"
