puggy is a she I see ! vets are doctors with more knowledge than the big pharmaceutical company, "bought and paid"for quacks but nothing beats true love for healing! To me this is verifiable proof of "faith healing". You obviously have true love for "puggy" and puggy has true love for you which translates to faithful companionship , never an ultimatum for retaining this faith in each other, just visible unabashed love .....
Faith is not demanded it is earned respectively . I cannot have faith in a book threatening hellfire and damnation if not conforming to it,no love there, just torture and judgment..
with a lots of murder and genocide
..
LOL, my little queen is a she! And you are right about the Vets; they have been magnificent with their care for her, once she was bitten by the brown snake she had a few issues with infections etc but got through all of that. Now we have old age to contend with.... she is 13 ... You know, you are so right about faithful companionship and we do adore each other, I know how I feel and she shows me how she feels. At the end of each day I rush home from work to be with her, and even now, it is after 2:00am and she is laying next to me, not wanting to miss out on anything.

Faith is a different emotion than love; but both can be so grand that they are overwhelming. I can understand your feelings about murder and genocide being written in the Bible; I read the headlines each day on MSN and watch the news each day; the newspapers of today could make for horrific reading in a couple of thousand years.

We have not learned anything and in fact, appear to be getting worse in our intolerance for others and our lack of empathy and care for those that have less than nothing. Some of the saddest words I have written in the Bible are those where GOD tells us that HE repented making man(kind) due to the continual evil in their thoughts. Each day I hear what is going on around the world from kids killing each other at school to suicide bombers blowing themselves up and innocent lives are taken for the impact these killings make.

They are raping the elderly and robbing them in the streets and in their homes, we let children starve and pay fortunes to others; we stuff up the judicial system continually and our governments dupe the people. Religions are businesses and Churches have let down the people.

My Heart goes out continually to GOD for having to witness these continuing atrocities, but I also know that one day, these things will come to an end and sanity will be brought to earth.

And in the meantime, Crucified Guy, we have our animals to love and to cherish, and for this I also thank GOD; :)

Is it possible Adam and Eve had children before they sinned? I'm quite sure they had sex before the serpent seduced her. Maybe Cain was the firstborn after the fall.

I have been involved in similar discussions on other threads. The Bible is rather ambiguous on some issues, so one must read between the lines and form ones own opinion.

Start with Genesis chapter 3 and read through chapter 5. I get the impression that they had Cain and Abel after they were cast out.

Read Genesis 3/23-24, now read all of chapter 4. It looks like all of the "begatting" started after they were cast out. Chapter 4 verse 1, "And Adam "knew" Eve, his wife-------".

Besides, Adam was too busy naming all the critters to messing around with a woman.

Skeptics have used Cain's wife time and again to try to discredit the Book of Genesis as a true historical record. Sadly, most Christians have not been able to give an adequate answer to this question. As a result, the world thinks Christians cannot defend the authority of Scripture and, thus, the Christian faith.

..........

There is no record of Abel being married.

Adam lived past 900 years old. Do you really think the two of them had only 3 children? If they had only one child every 9 years, that would still be 100 kids.

The Bible only deals with those in line with the Messiah, or those that will be of importance to the future narrative. The Bible does not list all of Adam and Eves lineage because A. It would not matter, and B. it would take an entire book that would never be read.

The law concerning mating with brethren did not become an issue until the law was given hundreds of years later. Inbreeding becomes a health issue after several generations within the same family tree. By Exodus, it was commanded against with no record of previous ill effects.

All human beings are descendants of one man and one woman (Adam and Eve).

So the messiah is from the lineage of Cain, the murderer?

I have formed the opinion that Cain met his wife after they were all cast out of Eden, which tells me that she came from the land of Nod.

This makes sense to me... Why would there be a mention of Abel and Cain if there were children before them? And then Seth? Cain was cast out but not forgotten;

Genesis 4:1 Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, "With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man."

***This sounds to me like the words given for the birth of the first child; ***

4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God,[said she], hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

***For here is the word 'again' used, so I am drawn to think that Cain was the first born, and Abel second and I am drawn to think that the city Cain built and his wife were indeed those from the land of Nod, or those that GOD told to go forth and mulitply***

4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

5:4 After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.

***And as you know, we are told of the children and their children of Cain and Seth as well as how long some of them lived for. But, we are not told of all of the children and their offspring, so it is really hard to use the word certain although it is good to debate our thoughts and reasonings!:)

Ok it was ADAM and EVE and CAIN and ABEL - at the time - Abel was killed... and Cain was cast off earth (dry land) to the Land of Nod... CAIN MARRIED A FISH...:) Sorry guys I know you dont want to believe in evolution but it is so! And LaMech bred back to land dweller to make Noah.. and Noah was the only one who found a DAUGHTER of GOD(Adam and Eve's first born) fair and took her as a wife vs the daughter of MAN. God decided to flood the earth (dry land) because of the wickedness.. But he particularly pointed out beastality when he said for "Man is also of flesh" because earlier in the bible Man was given dominion over other "flesh" (animals) Hate to break it to ya.. but everything you shall learn in science class is real... and that is because Cain bore children with a fish... and beastality was commonly practiced up until a pure-bred sheep true to its original species was sacrificed. Then it slowed down... which is why we have evolved from the original version of Adam and Eve BACK to how they looked... Also why Dolphins and other creatures are of more intelligence than other flesh!:)

Just posted this in another forum and thinks it fits the picture perfectly!!

***Dumb Bacteria that developed miraculous DNA that then spread into millions of different living beings, of which most life (apart from some animals and plant life etc) required sex organs for reproduction and this brilliant bacteria fed DNA then created for itself the correct number of male and female sex to populate the earth for (billions dare I say?) of years. This amazing DNA/bacteria was so clever, it took an old old old old fish, and created everything you can think of from me and you, to worms and birds!! Even managed to work out how to perfectly form and hatch and egg, let alone fly and build nests.... And then this Dumb Bacteria that started off everything we know, just up and disappeared and left us in complete stark and utter wonderment? Where oh Where is the Dumb Bacteria now? Oh, we know where it is, it is in the science labs that they are working on creating new life out of bacteria..... just proving that Dumb Bacteria needs a creator... only now the creating is done by lunatics with much to prove and nothing to lose... How's that for putting in my two cents worth? LOL***
