Editor’s Note: Gordon Smith (AKA Douglas Lee) is a UK based writer and online critic of the Watchtower Society. Unlike many of his peers, Gordon tries to mine whatever humor can be found in the lives and beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
In the video below, Gordon takes a close look at the events as reported in the Holy Bible about mankind’s earliest beginnings. The fact is that most mainline Christian religions have relegated the stories of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and Noah’s Flood to nothing more than simple Sunday school fare for children. Jehovah’s Witnesses, however, still believe and preach that the Genesis accounts of “Creation” should be considered historically accurate and truthful. In fact, if the Watchtower’s teachings of Creation and Original Sin were ever modernized to agree with natural history and science, most of their other teachings would collapse.
So, is the story of Adam, Eve and the serpent absolutely factual? Or is it just a 3000 year old Hebrew fairy tale. Check out what Gordon has to say…
