Conclusion from Genesis 1-4

Genesis 1 is a wonderful and exciting part of Scripture but its interpretation is complex.  I suggest there is evidence from within the passage and on the basis of simple knowledge of God’s works to interpret it as something other than literal history.  A minority of early Christadelphians shared this position.

Many of the passages considered in Genesis 2-3 are presented as being hostile to EC.  However, on examination, they are neutral – they neither support nor rule out the doctrinal preconditions which would allow some level of evolution as a tool in the hand of God.  As to the common proposition that Adam was amortal prior to the Fall and experienced a change in nature, the evidence is strongly to the contrary within Genesis.
