Re: More OT difficulties

...clear instance of an innocent individual being punished for someone else's actions.

Re: Can science and faith really coexist? Please convince me...

...I think there's no disputing that the complexities of our natural world as developed by science seem at least incongruous with the bible in terms of breadth and depth of our universe. I think that depends on what you think the bible says about the natural world. Origins of life, physical laws, e...

Re: SERIOUSLY????

People deserve to be happy and love whoever they want NO MATTER WHAT. Ahh... here is the root. Is this really a worldview that you are really willing to allow people to live out? I'm sure that the registered sex offender that lives down the street would give you an amen to that. I don't know what k...

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

The meaning of the mark is clearly to warn people not to take vengence on Cain. And when did I even suggest what God "should" have said? I am simply that, if Cain really did fear rerprisals from thewse phantom siblings, then God would probably - in the case of *probabilities* have conversed with th...

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

If you were sent to the land of Nod for fear of reprisals from your siblings for killing your brother, would you need a mark on your forehead for them to be able to regognise you? Surely not? Your brothers and sisters know you because...well...they are your brothers and sisters. God would simply sa...

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

Tell me - if Cain was under threat of death from other brothers and sisters, then why would God need to "mark" him?
Just so we're clear, is this the original dilemna to which you were referring?

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

Hey Warhoop, question for a question 8) where did I say that a coexistent creation did not know God, or who he is? I didn't. So in a way, I think this answers your question. :? Soooo... you have another civilization created by God, that knows or has a relationship with God, indeed to support your h...

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

You know, I hate it when a question is answered with a question, but sometimes I'm that guy. If you are supposing a prexistant civilization that do not know who God is, then what purpose would "the mark" serve? How would that mark save Cain from retaliation or retribution, for what else would cause ...

Re: Did God create others after Adam and Eve?

DannyM: All you need do is count from the first mentioned son through the third mentioned son. Seth is the third mentioned son. It is not the purpose of a biblical narrative to name all the players. In fact, to get a credit in a biblical narrative really only occurs if that person in some way shape...

Re: Sinful Nature

The only question that still remains for me is this: Why do we have to be made in Adam's image? Couldn't God have created us with a fresh start, like Adam had? Adam wasn't made in Adam's fallen image, obviously... This may not be the answer you want to hear, but that's just how it works. Genesis sa...

Re: Do we ignore science?

Well put. However the shifting winds of modern science seem to be where the old earthers are coming from. Not a bad thing in it self, I am beginning to consider myself an old earther. I have an easier time reconciling the science which I know and understand and agree with, with a bible that agrees ...

Re: Do we ignore science?

Here is my question: Are these time frames confirmed in the bible or are these interpretations of others based more on science? I agree that modern man is mot likely 50 to 100 thousand years old, many science books say more like 120K but this is at least in the ball park with each other. The bottom...

Re: Do we ignore science?

I find that the longer that I am in the faith, the more questions I seem to have and that can and does lead to doubt. But if God has been faithful in these areas of my life over here, why should I doubt his truthfulness in these other areas. The God that transforms hearts and minds certainly has ear...

Re: Do we ignore science?

In short he says he believes the bible literally. The interpretation of the bible by others who says the earth and mankind are 6K years old leave me in a quandry. So someone must be wrong. What does that mean to you? To read the bible literally? And if you had to lay odds, would you bet on the word...
