Genesis records that Adam had only one wife, Eve. Some confuse the two accounts of the creation of man (Genesis 1 and Genesis 2) as different creations of different people. However, Genesis 1 simply gives a general overview of man’s creation. Genesis 2 offers [...]
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 The word “God” in this verse is the Hebrew word, ‘elohim. The greatly respected Bible translator Jospeh Bryant Rotherham has the following comment in The Emphasized Bible: “It should be carefully observed [...]
Isaiah 43:1, 7, “But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine’… ‘Everyone who is called by My [...]
The Bible talks about the earth being flat not round. I take the scripture literally. Could NASA and the world be lying?
Some scriptures are not meant to be understood as literal. For example the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for forty years. However Hebrews 3:8-9 reads, "do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your [...]
God did not create sin; Lucifer did. The Bible traces the origin of sin back to the Garden of Eden. Genesis 1:26,27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…over all the earth…So God [...]
Yes, Adam was the first man. Genesis 2:7,8, "And the LORD God formed man (the Hebrew word is Adam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden [...]
Did or didn't Satan fall in Genesis1:2 when "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep"?
The darkness upon the earth in Genesis 1:2 is not referring to evilness. This verse provides a simple, accurate description of the forming of planet earth. In the beginning, the earth’s surface was dark covered with thick clouds. Light could not penetrate the thick [...]
There are a couple of Scriptures which allude to the answer. First, when God created Adam and Eve, He told them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth." (Genesis 1:28) Again, He told Jacob to "be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a [...]
You are correct that God knew "the world was going to be like this". With that knowledge He could have created man as a robot programmed not to sin, but instead He gave Adam a conscience (a moral sense), told him the rules and gave [...]
God is the Creator of Everything!!! So why did he create Lucifer? Even though Lucifer was created to worship God. Did not God know that Lucifer would turn against him
Rev. 19:6, "...Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!" Yes, our Father is omnipotent, all powerful, all seeing. But, He is a Father, not a robot-builder. His creation was given the power of choice, along with all other powers and privileges attached to their [...]
This question may be on the minds of a lot of people these days. Looking at the trouble that is happening around the world makes people ask “if God exists, why would he let this happen? If God exists, why is he so quiet?” [...]
If there was an answer to “who made God”, your next question would be “who made him”? This could be a never ending cycle. We, as thinking intelligent creatures, believe that everything has a beginning and has an end. The scriptures speak of beginnings, [...]
God did create a perfect earth and a perfect human family to enjoy it! In Genesis, we are told that after God created Adam, He pronounced His creation “very good.” Adam was indeed a perfect man living in a perfect home. But Adam’s free [...]
Eden – Here is the description of Eden that appears in Genesis 2:10-14, “And a river went out of Eden giving water to the garden; and from there it was parted and became four streams. The name of the first is Pison, which goes [...]
In the book of Genesis, we read that in the beginning God created first a man (Adam) to exercise dominion over his creation and subsequently a woman (Eve) as the man's "suitable helper" (Genesis 2:18, 20). Then Genesis goes on to say: "Therefore a [...]
Did Adam have a first wife before Eve. Because in Gen 1:27 it says God created human beings both male and female and blessed them to have many children?
In Gen 1:27 it says God created human beings both male and female and blessed them to have many children. Again in Gen 2:18 the Lord says it is not good for man to live alone. I will make a suitable companion to help [...]
This is a scripture that needs thoughtful consideration. The translators of the various Bible versions seem to disagree somewhat as to exactly what the scripture says. The King James reads: "For thou hast made [man] a little lower than the angels..." The Jerusalem Bible [...]
In the King James Version (KJV) Bible the whole scripture Psalm 139:14 reads: "I will praise thee: for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." The Old Testament scriptures were originally written in Hebrew, [...]
Is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil an evil tree? If so then, why did GOD created it in the first place?
The Bible doesn't state it is an evil tree. God said in Genesis 2:17,"But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it…" Its name indicates that eating its fruit would in some way open the eater's eyes [...]
We know from biblical chronology that Adam was created approximately 6,000 years ago. Therefore, the earth would have to be older than 6,000 years. In fact, we believe that the earth is very old. Scientists used to think the earth was about 100 million years old. They [...]
