Do you think we would be religious if we were never going to die?
Rev. Walter Burghardt, S.J. discusses the book of Genesis as God’s original intention to create human beings that were religious and never would die, but this goal ends as soon as sin enters the world. For Burghardt, the question is not answerable in a general way, but can only generate a subjective response.
