Re: Why did Adam Choose to die?

When did they begin to fear death? Adam's history only lists the names of surviving sons, (Gen 5:4), all of whom would have known what death was. Yes, they knew God had created man for a purpose but as far as they knew the finality of death outside the garden of Eden was real. It appears that it was...

Re: In the beginning was the Word.

Hello Stranger and others who replied, There is yet another way of understanding this verse that I don't think has been considered. What we do know for certain is that Jhn 1:1-18 are the words of the secret disciple that wrote the 4th gospel account. Peter referred to this secret disciple in Jhn 21:...

Re: Why did Adam Choose to die?

Re: Why did Adam Choose to die?
