I). ; • "] Editor of Adbancc What is the nature of sin? And ; how did it come into the world? Is the story, upon which 'our lesson is based, that "of the serpent tempting Adam and Eve in the' Garden of Eden, 'an adequate explanation? Is It to te taken literally? And, if • t,o, just , what; does it offer us? These are questions that, a ind spiritual teachings have been given .to the world in the form of parables and stories, both in the Bible and apart from its; sacred writings. The imaginative talcs of Aesop and other writers have been n highly specialized medium of moral Instruction. \Vc should remember that early religious writers were seeking to account for what they found in tills knowledge of good and cv and through the possibility c falling into evil, thai man cr choose the good way and pn grcss in it. From this view, .si with all its terrible aspects, is n incident in the progress of ma onward and upward. It would seem impossible take cither of these views a: a, a generation ago, Rould ha\e oc- casiotied bitter controversy. Fortunately, we have progressed to a stage where we can at least discuss them today without rancor, }>r without being accused of being disloyal to Christ and the New ^Testament if we fail to see In the Genesis story a literal account of the origin of sin The obvious Interpretation, 'if the approach to the Bible had not been so seriously affected by the controversy about literalism, would be to regard the story as a, sort' of allegory.

The one strong, insistent truth in the lesson Is that sin is a re- slity in human life. Along with this..-Is the clear representation that sin is a form of man's disobedience to law. Here, In the story, the law would seem to be arbitrary, but that is not ne:cs- sarily the teaching of the writer. What he k stressing, rather, - is that sin is disobedience. ' > .There Is, of course, an interpretation of this story which sees the problem in quite R different light. On this other interpretation, the so-called "fall of man" is-regarded as a "fall upward."
