The only wrong way to interpret the Bible, wrote Saint Augustine, is to interpret it in a way that does not make you more loving. At Hillside Community Church, we believe that Augustine was on to something really good.

Each week, we draw on the deepest insights of scripture to better understand how we might ground our lives in the transforming love of God. Our messages are fresh, relevant, and delivered with trademark good humor.

Bad Girl Eve

Midrash about the “lovely Lilith” notwithstanding - Adam’s partner Eve is considered by Western culture to be the first woman, the first sinner, and the first Bad Girl of the Bible. So was she as wanton and wicked as later church patriarchy would have us believe, literally taking the fall for it all? Or is it she - the curious one - seeking knowledge and testing limits that defines what it means to be quintessentially human?

Scripture References: Genesis 1:1-31
