I have a theological-scientific question (asking just out of curiosity): If the Genesis story of Adam and Eve are allegorical and don't contradict the theory of evolution, why is Jesus' lineage connected all the way to Adam himself? If Adam isn't a real man and is more of an allegorical symbol of men, why is he Jesus' ancestor? It's been on my mind for a while and I was hoping you would answer it. Thanks.
See, I don’t believe in evolution. I’m a young earth creationist creating a post about it now. I do believe parts of the Bible are more or less allegorical, but Genesis I have a more literal interpretation. I applaud those Protestants who have remained steadfast on this topic compared to Catholics who have become fluid. Evolutionism is materialist and thus dangerous; it preaches that death occurred before the Fall and therefore contradicts Scripture, which when taught to our children is building a weak foundation of faith that will someday crumble. Teaching evolution directly hurts souls.
Adam is the ancestor of Jesus because he is literally the ancestor of Jesus. I recommend you get into reading Hugh Owen’s works or at least try to find some of his lectures online. They converted me from evolutionism.
