Getting the Garden Right?

“If we deny Adams’s place as as federal head of a covenant that would either vindicate or condemn him according to his works, then we remove the possibility for mankind to fall in him. And if that is the case, we remove the reason for the incarnation of the eternally begotten Son of God. In fact, we remove the reason for God’s wrath towards mankind and man’s spiritual deadness in sins and trespasses, More than that, we remove the biblical framework within which to understand the category of imputation, so vital to Paul’s argument concerning Adam and Christ in Romans 5. If we fail to grasp this foundation, we will be building on sand from the start.”
