It is simple, it's the expression of the genes as we are finding more and more - the switchboard if you will. So it is easy to imagine JUST like it is today, that our DNA is almost identical, except the many has a Y chromosome. We know now that the gene is much more complex and interacts with the environment, and that neo-darwinism is silly. In a very ...

God gave lots of short term promises. Here are just a few from the first 20 chapters of Genesis. Genesis 7:4: God promises to Noah to send the rains in seven days time Genesis 15:13: a shortish term promise: God says that Abraham's descendants will be enslaved in Egypt in 400 year's time before being freed Genesis 18:10: that Sarah would give birth to a ...

Isaac is affirmed in multiple places as the son of Abraham (including seven times in the passage you've quoted alone!). God's visitation to Sarah was that of healing and restoring fertility so that she could conceive a child with her husband. To think that the Bible somehow implies that God had sex with Sarah is to ignore parts which speak quite plainly to ...

As far as the actual mechanics of this, we really have no idea. However, we know the basics of what changed. However, what the Lord had said to Sarah was that her womb would be opened and she would be able to conceive. And that's exactly what happened. Basically, to answer your question, no God did not have sex with Sarah, Abraham did. However, she was ...

C Rags answer is the best one so far because it is based on Scripture (Unfortunately as of now I can't comment neither vote up on his answer). If I am to give another answer, I would also use the Scripture beginning in Romans 5:12-14 (KJV): 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for ...

I will let the Scriptures speak for themselves: As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.. ...

Big Caveat: I am not answering the "truth" since we don't do that here, but rather giving a typical Nicene response. This answer is seeking to be descriptive of practice and general reasoning, rather than attempting to do new theology to definitively resolve an otherwise deep theological question. By process of elimination, most Nicene Christians would ...

Genesis 3:8 refers to Yahweh, and therefore to God the Father. However, this creates challenges for Christians who believe that if it is said once in the Bible that no one can look at the face of God and live, then they must find an explanation for passages such as Genesis 3:8ff that does not involve a person seeing God face to face. This is either not a ...

Several good questions being asked here: Regarding the word "heavens", Paul makes mention of visiting the "third heaven" (2 Corinthians 12:2). It was common for Jews to use the word heaven to mean the sky, outer-space, or spiritual heaven where God dwells. So "in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" may have meant the creation of earth and ...

God created the HEAVENS and the Earth. God is the creator of all reality as we know it, including time and space itself. Considering that both are directly related, time would have been a consequential creation of the creation of the dimensions of space. God does not have a physical body like we perceive life from our limited perspectives. He is often ...

The only time Joseph is actually mentioned in an Egyptian text is the "Osarseph" report in the "Aegyptopaea", the Egyptian history of the Egyptian/Greek historian Manetho, thought to be written on the basis of Egyptian temple documents and by direction of king Ptolemy II of Egypt in Memphis around 300 B.C. In this report, Osarseph, a renegade priest of ...

Searching the internet for the first time, nobody seems to be echoing Schlatter, who blessedly died in Germany before Hitler assaulted the world. Schlatter saw Romans 16:20 as a possible echo of the Genesis verse. The God of peace will trample Satan beneath your feet shortly--a glorious and wonderful promise from Sentman Paul who before had seen sinner Adam ...

The answer to this question is really quite interesting. The truth is, we don't know for sure. There is evidence for either location. Without a doubt however, Jewish and Islamic traditions put the tomb of the twelve patriarchs in Hebron. A mosque was erected during Saladin's time on top of the tombs where they are believed to be. However Stephen clearly ...

I stand corrected, as furthered study of God's word, it truly was Jesus with two angels. YHWH is Jesus, as also in Isaiah 6:1 .."I saw The Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up"...And Isaiah 44:6- .."I am the first and the last"...Ties in with Revelation 1;17-.."I am the first and the last". Then in Genesis 19:1- "And there came two angels to ...

Good question! Firstly, the name they used is the same. In Hebrew Most High God is "elyon" and it's used in both verses you refer to. Melchizedek is a really interesting character. In Psalms 110: 4 there is a bit where it says "you are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek". But who is this "priest forever"? The writer of Hebrews gives the answer, ...

There was a simultaneous creation of man (male) and woman (female).In the second creation story, a man was created before the animals, and later on a woman was created. In the first creation ...

I believe everyone is off on there answer. We need to read verses 3-6 combining. Gen 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. Gen 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. Gen 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of ...
