OPSOMMING

Hierdie artikel probeer 'n bydrae maak tot hernude besinning oor die Christelike skeppingsleer deur te fokus op die polemiese gerigtheid van Genesis 1-3 en die implikasies wat dit vir die gereformeerde leer oor die erfsonde het. Dit bespreek in die eerste plek die siening van Genesis 1-3 as histories-letterlike en mitologiese stof. Daarna stel dit voor dat Genesis 1-3 as teologiese stof met 'n polemiese en profetiese gerigtheid hanteer word. Vervolgens word die implikasies hiervan vir die gereformeerde leer oor die erfsonde bespreek.


ABSTRACT

This article focuses on the polemic nature of Genesis 1-3 and the implications thereof on the reformed doctrine regarding original sin. In the first place the views of the creation narratives as historical-literal and mythological material are discussed. Thereafter the article proposes that the creation narratives must be treated as theological material with a polemic and prophetic purpose. The implications of this for the reformed doctrine on original sin are subsequently discussed.
