Half-baked ideas

We did not lose paradise as much as we forfeited sacred space and the relationship it offered, thereby damaging our ability to be in relationship with God and marring his creation with our own underdeveloped ability to bring order on our own in our own wisdom. Yoda laments similarly about Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movie “The Empire Strikes Back” that he is not yet ready because his training is not complete (“Reckless is he . . . now things are worse”).—The Lost World of Adam and Eve, p. 145
