Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

He was and is the perfect man, and thus, He redeems his kinsmen--the Adamic race. Now, if there were people other than Adam, then there would be people who did not trace their lineage back to Adam, and if not to Adam, then they would not have participated in Adam's sin, nor would they be able to be...

Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

For the past few days I've been pondering this thought. The Bible never states that God did not create other people after He created Adam and Eve and after the fall, but it never says that it does. Here's where I'm coming from: after Cain kills Able, and is talking to God before he is "marked", Cain...

Daniel and the sealed scroll

So my wife and I were talking the other night about the scroll that Daniel had sealed at the end of the 12th chapter. There were a few thoughts from both of us concerning this matter and I wanted to know what you all thought about it. Could it possibly be the scroll that Christ opens in the book of ...

Re: The Shack by William Young

My wife read this book and said that it was very good. She also read two books by Anne Rice, who became a Christian not too long ago, and said they were very good as well. I just can't remember what they were called.

Re: Two questions

:doh: I understand now which way you were going with it. God Bless you and love you. I can kind of see it now from your POV. I don't want someone reading what I wrote thinking that somehow I was advocating that God isn't omniscient or omnipotent. I know you weren't advocating this. If God knew the p...

Re: Who's to blame?

Then you aparently have never been to China and eaten the non-comercialized food. Stuff you only find in places well off the beaten path. Uh...no thanks. I'm not one to eat fried skunk or sautéed raccoon testicles. If I ever go to China - which is highly unlikely - I'll be staying at the Beijing Ho...

Re: Two questions

I thought about what you said before I posted. It's definitely a mystery. However, how can we truly have free will, be free agents (at least in a sense), if God knows all ahead of time? Agreed that it is a mystery. I think about the Rabbi in the Synagog who passes over part of scripture reffering t...

Re: Two questions

If God is omniscient, which he is, why must he be concerned with us at all? He already knows the outcome of our existence even before he made us, since everything is predictable when you have absolute knowledge. I would say, just off the top of my head, that God chose not to have absolute knowledge...

There is no such thing. The Chinese don't make anything really well.

I am. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clear that up. :eugeek: :)
So...you're the one who got all the trillions!
I spent it on Chinese food and baseball cards.

It won't happen again. I promise.
