May 10, 2021: The Fall Reversed

Robert E. Webber

By death God in Jesus Christ has defeated all that is sin and death in the world. . . . The powers of evil rob the earth of its joy and turn history into madness. But Christ, the second Adam, broke the power of sin by his obedience to the Father and through his death reversed the effects of the Fall. Because of the death of Christ, sin is conquered and the creation is set free. . . . Through Christ the powers of evil have suffered an irreversible defeat!

-Robert Webber, Ancient-Future Faith: Rethinking Evangelicalism for a Postmodern World (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1999), 60.
