Re: Adam’s rib

I've not mentioned "genetic progenitor", although I can see why you jump to such being the case since many might take that view by all being in Adam, yet then none who are in Christ are genetically related to Him. So, I see it as irrelevant. Amen... That is one of the key points that I am trying to...

Re: Adam’s rib

Philip: And before I forget on this topic, there's Acts 17:26 "And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth..." y:-? That seems to assert from one man came all the nations "to live on the face of the earth..." - ALL nations that have ever existed everywhere ...

Re: Adam’s rib

All people have sinned and are affected by the sin of Adam... regardless of their genetic ancestry. And Christ died to save all people... regardless of their genetic ancestry. There is no Scriptural correlation between a person's genetic relationship to Adam and either their participation in the co...

Re: Adam’s rib

God has always had values as to what He considers right and wrong. And if beings of free will, surely any pre-Adamites had the ability to choose things or actions God has always deemed as being wrong - which is what sin is. Yes and no... Yes - God has an unchangeable set of values that determines r...

Re: Adam’s rib

DBowling, Maybe you could elaborate on man being created in God's image in Genesis 1:27, and how your belief that Genesis 1 is talking about pre-Adamite humanity. In other words, what is "God's image" referring to in regards to pre-Adamites? Were they spiritual? Did they know right from wrong, or d...

Re: Adam’s rib

I wonder, for those who show a fondness for a pre-Adamic race, isn't racism to some degree justified? Short answer... no. As I mentioned above genetics tells us that all humans (independent of race) are all descendants of common ancestors in Africa. So there is no justification for racism of any so...

Re: Adam’s rib

Also, DB, I think you should take all of the mentions in Scripture that MIGHT tie Adam and Eve to all mankind - like the naming of Eve noted Genesis 3:20: "The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living ." As this statement would SEEM to mean that Eve was the mother of...

Re: Adam’s rib

a notion I'm cosidering is that were pre-Adamites, who later mixed with the Adamites (One Blood), thereby eliminating the idea that incest was necessary to propagate humanity. I believe what made Adam and Eve special was that from them came the line that Jesus came through (line, not race. A the th...

Re: Adam’s rib

I was not speaking of Moses. I never knew he believed in pre-adamites. As a matter of fact, I belive The Original Hebrew Israelites were Black. I was referring to the pre-adamism doctrine popularized by Europeans in recent centuries, the bullcorn that says only whites come from Adam, i.e. the so-ca...

Re: Co-Adamites/Post-Adamites

I reject the concept of "pre-Adamites". It was cooked up to defend all sorts of racism. If we reject every Scriptural premise that fallen men have distorted for evil then we will end up rejecting a lot of solid Scriptural doctrine. I also reject your premise that Moses cooked up the concept of pre-...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Rhetorical question... I think you know the answer... Was anyone ever saved by keeping the Old Covenant? Rhetorical answer: YES! Well, I thought you knew you knew the answer, but you evidently don't. We are saved by grace through faith. We are not saved by works, we are not saved by the Law, we are...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

According to Exodus 19-24, the 10 Commandments (and the rest of Exodus 20-23) are the conditions that God established for Israel in the Covenant that God established with Israel at Sinai. The 10 cannot be a condition. sure it can... again... Read Exodus 19-24... It's all right there.. I never said ...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Agreed... and that was the problem with the Old Covenant. The Old Covenant showed people their sinfulness, but it did nothing to resolve the sin problem. That's not what I'm in agreement with. The covenant exists BECAUSE Man, since/through the 1st Adam, is sinful. The 10 are not A covenant nor are ...
