Original State of Man

            Looking back at the history of the world and we cannot help but wonder what the original state of man was when we entered this planet.  We know from the revealed declarations of the Bible that the original state of man’s life on this world was different than the sinful world that we see today.  From the facts of the Bible, we come to understand that when Adam was created by God that man was created in a state of maturity.  This maturity meant that when Adam was created he was created as an adult.  It is a common misunderstanding that when man appeared on the earth that he was an infant and that he had to create for himself all that we now have.  We now know from the revealed pages of Scripture that this is not so.  In fact when God made man, God gave man the tools that we need to survive and that all of our millions of hours of speculation of the original needs for early human communities amounts to just large amounts of wasted time when we could’ve found out the answer for sure from God Himself Who was there when we were created.

            But while the original Adam was created in a state of maturity and was given the ability to come to an extraordinary amount of knowledge from his birth so to speak, we should not then think that Adam was perfect in the sense of spiritual perfection.  As we learn quickly into the story of man’s creation from the testimony of God that we were created with the potential to make the decision for ourselves to violate God’s decrees.  We were not created as robots.  Instead, Adam was created in the image of God and as such he was given the ability to make his own free will decisions.  And Adam enjoyed the ability to not only have experienced the world before the curse, but Adam was also able to enjoy for the time before the fall the perfect peace of perfect matrimony with Eve.  And this perfect relationship was augmented with the reason that was given to Adam that was completely without the limitations of our own current fallen reasoning powers which are subject to the fall’s curse and the fall’s limitations.  It was in this perfect state that Adam was given dominion over all of the animals of the earth.  This dominion is at best an imperfect dominion today with few animal species still giving man their obedience.  We humans having abdicated our moral leadership in Adam have necessarily left the animals to fend for themselves for the most part.

    Who needs Anthropology, Archeology, Recorded History, Biology, Astronomy and Physics when you have the Bible it has all the information about those things in it. Oh Shiite no it doesn’t now how am I supposed to think?

        I can’t believe that in this day in age there are still people who don’t believe in the God of the Bible. But I guess there will always be those who reject the obvious.

      Anthropology, Archeology, Recorded History, Biology, Astronomy and Physics all lead us to faith in the Bible when they are done correctly. When the mountain of truth is finally climbed it will be discovered that the Christians have been at the summit all along.

        So you are saying the professionals in those fields cannot do them correctly, but the christians can. Don’t you think if a scientist could prove god he would? are you that lost? do you not even understand what the objective of science is? They do not get paid to disprove god like christians think. I understand why science is scary to a christian, seeing how science has disproved your god in so many ways, but what I cannot understand is why believers cannot get over it.

          I think that when people do those fields with the incorrect presuppositions that they will necessarily get the incorrect results which is why I have been a big proponent of accurate science within all of the churches that I get involved with.

    Original state of delusion

      What are you calling a delusion? On what basis?

      November 27, 2012
      1. rebel62

        Your god is a delusion on the basis of no evidence other than one book called the bible. No historians noted jesus when he was crucified, when he died the dead walked the earth in Jerusalem, historians missed that evidence. When he died the sun went out for three hours, the historians missed that evidence. The early church never heard of christians or jesus walking the earth and neither did the historians. I am sure you probably do not even know that. The church never heard of a personal relationship with god until recently, I am sure you never knew that either. Its seems The Romans, Historians and you seem not to even know anything of the religion you speak so how could you possibly give this obviously plagiarized (from pagans) god credit for creating the Universe, when he cannot even communicate his story correctly.

    Great blog. Keep up the good work. A new discovery has caused much excitement amongst many archaeologists from around the globe and causing some debate on this issue as it was previously thought that the Ark of the Covenant was permanently lost. Of all places in the world Panama it would seem to be the most unlikely place to have discovered this ancient relic the Ark of the Covenant, however new evidence substantiates the claims that the lost Ark of the Covenant was smuggled to Mesoamerica by Malchiah using the Phoenicians and was hidden in a cave in Volcan Chiriqui in the republic of Panama. Check out their link at The Ark of the Covenant Website Chiriqui archaeological sites.

    The startup of mankind is very rear; there are many different opinions on the startup of the human life. As per the rushessays writing services the mark of Bible is described about the Adam is the first man on earth created by God. The other opinions of man are different with that.
