Mr. Blatchford says that there was not a Fall but a gradual rise. But the very word “rise” implies that you know toward what you are rising. Unless there is a standard you cannot tell whether you are rising or falling. But the main point is that the Fall like every other large path of Christianity is embodied in the common language talked on the top of an omnibus. Anybody might say, “Very few men are really Manly.” Nobody would say, “Very few whales are really whaley.”
Just a taste of the wit of G.K. Chesterton.
May I recommend an Introduction to the Book of Job?
I know I mentioned it earlier but it may have gotten buried and gone unnoticed for some.
