Answer to Question #80277 in Other English for ivy P
How does ‘Abdu’l-Bahá use the symbol of “Adam” and how does he argue that symbol be used as a key to the establishment of world peace? Text support: From The Promulgation of Universal PeaceTalks Given by `Abdu'l-Bahá in His Travels Throughout Europe and North America
Transgress is the symbol of “Adam,” who disobeyed and made all Mankind deserving punishment and making retribution. But, that symbol can be used as a key to the establishment of world peace as Adam’s sin cannot be considered as the sin of His posterity, especially as Adam is a thousand generations back of the man today. In other words, men might be forgiven.
