comment What are the various evangelical views regarding the agricultural revolution and it's impact on primeval history in Genesis?
@Jeff Because the question isn't how they discovered agriculture. Adam's duty from God in the garden was agriculture. The issue is that paleontology asserts that there were entire civilizations which predated agriculture.

comment What are the various evangelical views regarding the agricultural revolution and it's impact on primeval history in Genesis?
@Jeff The question has implications that affect the historicity of a literal Adam and Eve, which has major theological significance for evangelical hermeneutics and understanding of the fall. If it is not true that the first people were agriculturists, and we see that the direct descendents of the first two people were agriculturists, there is a missing explanation for how that could be the case, unless the evangelical position is that agriculture has been around since the beginning of mankind.

Evangelical scholars do not all hold the YEC view.

comment Is to ignore Satan also to underestimate the potential he has to assault the Christian?
Yes, as Death seems to be an anthropomorphism of the concept of death.

comment Does the Bible condemn white lies?
This answer equates lying with bearing false witness, but that can't be true if Rehab is commended as righteous in lying to protect the spies.

@GregMcNulty good question, and the answer is that we don't. We are called to resist him, not cast him anywhere. dleyva3 is referring to Revelation 20:14 where God throws death and Hell into the lake of fire for final destruction during judgment day.

comment God | The Shepherd That “Breaks Legs”?
@AJHenderson I suppose you're right. It's a more sophisticated argument to talk about suffering as a result of discipline from the Lord. We know biblically that God disciplines his people, but the mechanics of that discipline aren't spelled out directly. We know that God causes/ordains suffering in believers. Finally we know that God always works for the good of his people, so it's possible to draw the inference that God may discipline his people through suffering for their good, but since it is an inference, it shouldn't be necessarily stated dogmatically.

comment God | The Shepherd That “Breaks Legs”?
@AJHenderson maybe not exactly pertinent, it is more of a blanket statement. All things, includes, well, all things. Pleasant things, discomfort, discipline, and so forth would all be considered things that work to the good. I wouldn't however want to use this passage to make the point that the Bible says that God disciplines people. He does, but this isn't the passage for it.

The meat of the question is how, specifically, can it be said that every transgression did receive a just retribution when it appears that there are yet some transgressions which have not.
