When I teach the scriptures I try to keep in mind that there are many things that can be taken literally and that there is an awful lot that we don't know about Our Lord and the creation of the universe. In teaching the scriptures there is in contemporary scripture scholarship a big emphasis to place the first 11 chapters of Genesis as mythopoeic genre. I think we need to emphasize that as Catholics we must believe in monogenesis, we must believe in original sin and we can take the first 11 chapters literally if we wish but we have the freedom to look at them allegorically. So often in teaching we stress the allegorical to the point where kids don't know what to believe so they wind up not believing anything.

It would appear that Saint Paul and Christ in the scriptures took Adam and Eve literally. I believe my students need to have the same freedom. If it was good enough for Christ it should be acceptable for us. I once watched an entire class lose their faith in the historicity of the scriptures because of this type of teaching of Genesis. Shame on me, if I again teach the Bible like this to another generation.
