#127 How do I reconcile Evolution, the Fall and Original Sin?

July 21, 2022

Ask NT Wright AnythingPremier

If evolution is true then physical death existed before the Fall - how do we reconcile that with scripture? How do we reconcile evolution with the concept of a first man and woman and original sin? Did the Fall also affect the rest of the universe?

 

Tom answers listener questions on evolution, creation and Genesis.
