Re: Trump Moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!!!

God chose the Jews as the nation through whom he would bring salvation to the world and he promised to bless those who bless them. He chose Jerusalem to be the capital of his people. By moving the embassy to Jerusalem President Trump is aligning our country with God and enabling us to receive the bl...

A random arrow

1 Kings 22:1-40 describes the battle in which King Ahab of Israel lost his life. He asked Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, to join him in taking Ramoth-gilead back from the Syrians. Jehoshaphat agreed to help but insisted that they ask God’s guidance first. Ahab called 400 prophets and asked whether ...

The lion in my wardrobe

This morning I opened the door to my wardrobe and found a lion in it. When I asked him what he was doing there he replied, "Narnia business."

Christian counseling

If you have a problem and need a professional counselor you probably won’t have much trouble finding one unless you want a counselor who believes the Bible and uses that as the basis for his work. Most counselors base their work on secular beliefs. One organization that does offer Biblical counselin...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

In theophilus' defense, he doesn't take Genesis quite as literally and concretely when he believes the sun only became visible, but was already created. Why he feels the need to be inconsistent, and take yom literally and concretely, is puzzling. There is nothing inconsistent in my beliefs. The Bib...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

Another indicator in the text that the presence of an evening (end) and morning (beginning) does not imply 24 hours is the absence of an evening and a morning in day 7. What does the absence of an evening and morning for day 7 tell us? How long was day 7, since it had no evening and morning (Hebrew...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

And yet, the Genesis 2 account is NOT the same, is it? The Creation of Man and Woman 4 These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. 5 When no bush of the field[a] was yet in the land[b] and no small plant...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

So, according to your interpretation, each day is the same as we know a day today, the earth rotates on its axis, and in relation to the sun, each place on the earth has daylight and darkness. Tell me then, according to your interpretation, when was the sun created, before or after this point in Ge...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

*shakes head* Where does it say that Adam was created on the sixth day in Genesis 2? It is found in Genesis 1, verses 26 and 27: Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the lives...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

You are presuming that we know how long a day/yom within the context of the Genesis 1 creation account is. Which brings me to one of my favorite questions? How long is the day/yom in Genesis 2:4? The word day can have many meanings and it is the context of each usage that shows which meaning is int...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

PaulSacramento wrote:Even if it refers to Adam total age, from his creation to death, there is no time line IN the Garden or WHEN the garden was made so how does one calculate the age of the world from Adam's?

Adam was created on the sixth day. Just add five days to Adam's age and you have the age of the earth.

Re: Local flood and local fire?

Where in the bible doe sit say that the flood took place 1636 after creation? Where is that number? How many years were Adam and Eve in the Garden in Eden? Chapter 5 of Genesis gives the genealogy from Adam to Noah. It tells how long each person lived and at what age he became the father of the nex...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

And nowhere in Scripture does God say that the flood covered the whole planet. In Genesis 6:13 God said, "I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth." A flood could not do this unless it cov...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

The purpose of the flood was to destroy all human life except for Noah and his family. The flood took place 1636 years after creation. It is unlikely that the entire human race lived in Mesopotamia. There had been plenty of time for them to spread out over the entire earth. Perhaps the writers of th...

Re: Local flood and local fire?

However, when Peter refers to 'the world at that time' he is not referring to the whole planet. He is referring to the known world at the time of the flood, which when you look at the geographical context of Genesis 1-6 centers on the region of Mesopotamia. The whole world existed, whether or not t...
