comment Did God really create the world in six days?
@fredsbend Well I meant to say that they would not have been able to comprehend that the Earth could have been so old (because we, ourselves, have only recently come to that conclusion via modern scientific methods). Although, whether or not they could comprehend the number itself - I don't know if there would have been any such circumstances where such a number would have been applicable, so I doubt it would be a widely understood concept among such primitive people. But I could be wrong - I don't really care :)

@fredsbend you think early man would have known that the Earth upon which they stood was billions of years old? Something we modern day humans have only discovered in the last 50 years Ref. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_the_Earth

Perhaps I remembered that differently. It seems his father only gives him the fattened calf, not the land. biblehub.com/luke/15.htm Thanks again for your answer.

Ah, yes thank you so much. I forgot about this story. I am not sure if it's the same story as the one I recall, in which, there were two sons, and one of them left and the other stayed. The one who stayed expected to receive his father's land, but when the one who left finally returned, his father gave the land to him instead. Does that ring a bell?

@DJClayworth Yes! That's exactly what I was looking for. Can you please share some examples? Sorry if that wasn't clear from my question.

@Flimzy I see, thanks for that. I didn't know there could be such opposing views on such "core" principals. I will close the question. I am still glad I asked it; always good to connect with other minds on confusing subjects.

comment Examples of people who fell from grace and earned it back?
@Flimzy Interesting. I guess I was looking for a distinct biblical citation that would say something like, "you can lose your faith and come back and God will forgive you for 'falling off the wagon' and treat you like it never happened."

@Flimzy I believe I am asking both questions; i.e. if someone blasphemes against the holy spirit, can they regain their lost faith and be forgiven (and once again receive the holy spirit)?"
