Adam, the Fall, and the Goodness of God
Trinity International University, Deerfield IL
TIU

The Christian tradition has historically maintained that Adam and Eve, our first human ancestors, were created in a state of righteousness that was lost through Adam’s disobedience. In this conference our aim is to clarify the theological stakes of the current debate in a manner faithful to Scripture and in open and earnest dialogue with modern scientific research. What are the exegetical, philosophical, and theological consequences of adopting the various competing models of Adam and the fall? What can we learn from the judgments and debates of the early church surrounding the doctrine of creation that may be able to offer guidance to the current discussion? What does Scripture, properly interpreted, require that we believe about Adam and the fall?
