On a different site I am having a conversation with a guy who says that Adam and Eve were not literal people. He says they are representative of humanity in general. He asserts that if his postion is true that nothing is lost theologically. My question to you guys is.....Is this correct? What theological difference would there be if "Adam", in Paul's words in Romans, was not a real person? Help me out here and give some things to bring to this discussion. Thanks!!!
