Gen 2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you
shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely
Gen 3:9-12 ¶ Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?" 10 So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself." 11 ¶ And He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?" 12 Then the man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate."
Ge 5:4-5 After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. 5 So all the days that Adam lived
were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
Seth was born many days after Adam ate the forbidden fruit, So
did God lie, or how do Christians explain this scripture?
My name is Tim Gean and I will tackle this one, To the person who reads the bible to prove it wrong and that is all they do, this would seem to be an contradiction. Remember the very nature of the God we believe in is one who is holy, Ps 99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at His holy hill; For the LORD our God is holy.
1Co 3:17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (NKJV)
Holy means sinless, and therefore God can not lie. If this is a contradiction or a lie, in either case Christianity falls into a heap of rubble, if it is shown God lied. For Heb 6:18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, and again in Tit 1:2 in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time
We must agree that Adam did not physically die the day he ate the forbidden fruit. So did God lie? No and here is the reason why, God was not talking about Physical death But spiritual Death. There is a
difference. The bible teaches that the word death means separation. Jas 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Now death means separation, in physical death, our spirit is
separated from our body, but in Spiritual death our Souls are separated from God almighty.
Ro 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the
world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned--
Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden of Eden where they
enjoyed fellowship and life with God the vary day they sinned.
Jesus said: Mark 12:24 Jesus answered and said to them, "Are you
not therefore mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God? 25 "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 26 "But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? 27 "He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken."
Notice the timing of the spiritual death suffered by Adam and
Eve. It was the vary day they sinned. Genesis 3, and they were even kicked out of the garden the same day. Ge 3:23-24 therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned
every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
You see Atheist donot understand the power of God for they in their ignorence don't even believe in Him. God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. even today many do not see what a Christian sees, and that is the dead are walking among us, thinking they are alive, but sin has killed them just like it did Adam and Eve. Most people I see are dead to God, Dead to his will, and Dead to his fellowship.
Ro 7:9 I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin
revived and I died. 10 And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me. 12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. 13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
The Atheist and all unbelievers and disobedient to God are the walking dead.
The only hope for anhyone is Jesus!
Ro 8:1 ¶ There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ
Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the
Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
Friend where is your mind? one day phisical death is coming, but if you are alive in Christ, you will live and if you are dead to Christ, you will remain eternally separated from God, eternally Dead. You see no contradition, just men who claim to be wise and are fools.
This is Tim the michigan Trucker going 10 10 on the side
Now we talked about it is impossible for God to lie, Hebrews 5, and Luke 1:37 "For with God nothing will be impossible." Is this a contradiction? We will look at this passage next week. It is not
a lie, But an atheist ignorant application. Nest week come back and I will tell you why I say that.
