comment Why has God punished every human for one person's sin?
Why is it fair when one person does drugs and their babies come out deformed? For such a child to live a happy life, they must learn to forgive the actions of their parents. That's reality. And when they find forgiveness in the Lord, it makes that much easier. We are forgiven so we can forgive.

But a "day" to God is a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8), and Adam lived to be 930 years old. And men after, up until the flood, lived roughly that age, but not exceeded 1000 (to my knowledge).

It wasn't "wrong". They had no knowledge of right and wrong yet. They knew, however, with the general knowledge of an adult, that they were going in opposition to their maker and provider. God gave them life and abundance and they went in opposition to God out of selfishness. You are actually lucky, because they probably had thought that when God said "in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die" they probably interpreted that as a literal earth day, and thus made the decision to kill everyone in the world since no one would have been born.

@Jonathan You are not inheriting their sin, you are inheriting the sinful nature that they became.

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
In the rapture, its not the "good" that are taken up.. as there are none that are good (Romans 3:10), its those who are in Christ. And the remaining will endure a 7 year tribulation, as described in Daniel and Revelations, in which they can choose to accept Christ.

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
"...we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord..." 1 Thess 4:15 (Amplified) - obviously Paul is talking about the end of times, and by "we" he means those in Christ. I doubt he meant that he would still be alive at "the coming of the Lord"

comment Faith without reason?
@MarcGravell Have you read Daniel? I think all the amazing prophecies coming true that can be shown through our own history counts as concrete evidence, no? And what about what God in the whirlwind says to Job? There's no way Job or any man could've known about some of the things God says to him. Just some examples.

Although what your 2nd paragraph says is true and that should be the way to handle it in order to save them, there is definitely a way to defend the argument on a logical level. That is what the question is asking.

comment Can the Word of God and God's wisdom be beneficial to an unbeliever?
There are really two kinds of wisdom, the world's and God's. The world's wisdom can vary on the scale, but God's is holy and perfect, in the way He meant it to be interpreted (which usually is pretty straight forward, and if not He will grant if asked). And yes, I think you are right on how to approach it. I need to avoid being too preachy, but like I said, its in an overall effort to lead Him to Christ.
