Explain the metaphor of adam and eve sin?

  • English -

    The story is a metaphor for disobedience. Whether you look at the story from a Biblical standpoint or a "story" to teach a lesson, if an "innocent"( child or adult) is told "Don't do that. It won't be good for you." and the child/adult does it, then there is going to be a problem and a lesson learned. If a child disobeys, then there are consequences, loss of privilege. If an adult disobeys ( for instance and employer) then there is going to be a loss of pay or even a job.
