Trying to Get Back in to Eden Ever Since

Man has been trying to get back into Eden ever since he went out of it. That is the whole history of civilization. That is the whole meaning of philosophy and all political thought and all the blueprints of utopias at all times and in all places--man trying to get back into paradise.
--Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Gospel in Genesis: From Fig Leaves to Faith (Crossway 2009), 20

'As in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.' --1 Corinthians 15:22
