Re: Some thoughts on Genesis 1&2

I've just been re-reading Genesis 1: 27 and 28 -- male and female have been created and told to be fruitful and multiply and to subdue the earth. The next chapter goes into More Detail. Marriage is introduced between Adam and Eve. Their punishment is pronounced in Ch 3 -- for women with conception a...

Re: If none would have faith?

What bothers Me about the Calvin/ Armenianism discussion is that they were simply two men who read Scripture and came with their various opinions. Pretty much opposed positions. But who are we to be following Men's concepts of Scripture ? or be reading and studying on our own and then sharing with o...

Re: Matthew 10:28

God's Word tells us about both heaven and hell. But there is also satan's desire to deceive mankind into thinking that 'hell'/ eternal punishment/ won't really be That bad. But we're Also reminded that while here on earth-- our physical body Can be killed, but our 'soul' / spirit continues on. The S...

Re: IF YEC is True, Why So Much Evidence Pointing to OEC?

There Are absolute truths. And people also have personal biases about most everything. Look at a half glass of water -- is it half Full or half Empty. These days the OEConcept is much more popular. Science is considered to be the ultimate authority -- and science Is authoritative -- it's simply that...

Re: Genesis Creation Accounts' Purpose: Science or Theology?

I'd like to add a thought -- all Scripture is given by inspiration of God To mankind and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. -- That would imply that God's Word is to be the authority -- we...

Re: Did God literally and visibly walk in the garden?

Would the relationship that Adam and Eve experienced with God while in the Garden be Different than what He allows Now -- After the fall? In other wards God would have Allowed them to actually See Him and fellowship with Him visually while they were still in their innocence -- but once they were no ...

Re: Hell pagan?

In Revelation we are told that Satan, the beast and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone for ever and ever. There are indications that there are various degrees of hell. No body wants to believe that 'simply rejecting salvation' will be bad enough to suffer in hell like s...

According to Genesis 3:8 "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden ----" He is conversing with them. So why wouldn't it be literal and visible. Back in ch 1:26 "Then God said, "Let Us make ......" 1st mention of the trinity. I and My Father are One. And they were Also separate ...
