Doctrinal Jenga

From Steven Wedgeworth's essay "What Depends upon an Historical Adam?":
"Death is, according to the Bible, a judgment based upon Adam’s sin. If that original sin was not itself real, an event occurring in this world, then the judgment is arbitrary and unjust. We should also say that if death is simply a natural part of the created order, the normal process of decay inherent in the evolutionary model, then it is not actually a "problem" at all. It is just a feature of the universe. This then must attribute death to God’s original design, a species of Gnosticism.  [...]   If Adam was not historical, then Christ need not be either."
