This section shows just how God is still active in creation. The idea of the fall would lead a thinker to deduce that God has left the universe in disgust - that it is yet to redeem itself and continues to exist to do just that. Under that impression, the world would continue indefinitely without personal hope of divine intervention until "all men" have submitted to the requirements of God's own disgust. Without any redemptive work the answers we are left with are closer to the concept of islam, that God will leave man an inheritance but will not be active or present in that reward, leaving the man to the desires of his heart rather than the rewarding presence of God Himself.

Fundamentally though, the biblical account (which precedes islam) in its entirety from the first book to the last contradicts this "washing His hands of creation" that would be such an act of God. In view of all that went before it in the christian context, the finished work of Christ is only contradicted by the mad lies and jealousy of the devil in antichrist; such an outcome of divine absence is a total lie in biblical terms, a fantasy, a dream of satanic origin.

The Ark Of His Testament
There is one complete testament of Jesus Christ in the bible, within the book of revelation. In other forms it is the heart of the gospel message. It is the declaration of the triune Godhead and divinity of Jesus Christ, for Jesus is God. The ark of the covenant then is not just a missing ancient relic, gone from the world today - (despite rumours of its rediscovery), but it would be more succinct to admit the possibility that 'it' (please forgive the use of the word) was "raptured" to the heavenly throne and it's temple safely (before the captivity of Israel within Babylon) preceding its appearance in said temple in the scene described in the book of revelation. The vision of Ezekiel where the presence of the Lord went up from the temple and the cherubim or living creatures departed from the vision could easily indicate this event. At the time of writing I was awe-struck with the concept of the divine Holiness of this vessel. Its uniqueness is implied by its total sanctity. With the revelation that the last book of the New Testament shows Jesus is actually God Himself - we see why this 'ark' then appears in heaven at that moment.

The Flood In The Days Of Noah
The previous page in this section on the flood was easily deprecated. I now re-examine the flood with a more "fluid" presentation of the book of genesis' account; preserving the language of the creation account's "deep" and "waters". The older pages are no longer accessible but the content was not correct anyway. Sometimes we just have to let our creationism flow off the page rather than onto it. The Earth is not young. Instead of being created with a fossil record, the Earth has truly aged in order to gain one. God has not lied with putting it here.

Where Did Mrs Cain Come From?
I follow the thread which stems from the appearance of a wife for Cain, and has led many to believe that "the sons of God" in the nephelim account are more than men, but are alien or angel-men hybrids. I show from the verses that there is no such sense. Sixth day man is from the text itself, only descended from Adam and Eve. There are no "others". Likewise it becomes apparent that as men multiply so do women, no surprise there; yet there is no reason to consider that Noah, perfect in His generations was merely "genetically pure". God said He repented of making man "whom He had created". If God intended nephelim on a genetic scale at creation, why destroy them on a genetic basis?

God Chooses To Be Involved
God Himself has described the accounts given to Moses in the five books of what is known as "the Torah". God has stated at times He has appeared to not be "all knowing" (omniscient) "all pervasive" (omnipresent) and "all powerful" (omnipotent). How then can we explain this apparent self-deprecation and still justify that God is concerned with man on an intimate and personal level if the text itself seems to be nonsense? The static view that people have of God is that which needs to alter, God had a purpose for creation: who is to say that creation should not serve its intended purpose to God even today?

The Fall Of Man
The fall of man is also much maligned; There are plenty of other pages on this site that examine the carnality of the senses (In both the metamath and metaphysics sections) - here I knock the nail on the head discussing the mistaken belief that the man Adam was innocent of the difference between good and evil before breaking God's commandment in the garden. The tree did not dispense the knowledge of the difference of good and evil, it required that they (good and evil) be melded into a carnal synthesis if they (and the commandment) were to be dispensed with.

The Garden, Was It There?
Just a short examination of how the creation account shows God Himself enjoys His creation, God planting Himself a garden is not so hard to understand in the biblical sense. The relegation of the scriptural accounts to the realm of mere "stories" or even "purely being a parable" is not supported by scripture despite the appearance of things as they are today. The environment is a certain way deliberately and reflects the pleading of God with us to overcome the world: to repent of the sin of Adam and Eve.

Freedom And Disobedience
The progression of the remnant of God's chosen people (Israel) from the initial creation of Adam to the final election in Christ has occurred through a specialisation of sequential covenants between God and man. As time has passed God has given successive sets of commandments that have never been done away with. The severity of the law of Moses is mirrored in the election of Christ being black and white, and is present in the account of the expulsion of Eden. Similarly the flood in Noah's account shows those in Christ will survive the final destruction of every ungodly person at the wrath of God.

The Fall Was Universal
Christians are at a loss on the whole to defend that sin caused death when man did not die immediately and all the other animals die also. We are reminded that sinfulness in man is to act like an animal, which the animals already do so in abundance. In limiting man's lifespan to 120 years or so God also limited in the same decision the lifespans of animals, (though not indicated in the text, animals are given for meat as their place in the food chain of man). There is no indication that animals whom were blessed to multiply were not created with only mortal life to begin with; and that they already hunted each other. The account merely states all animals could survive on vegetation for food in the absence of prey. They could have had a food chain of animal prey already.

The Curse Of Death, The Sting Of Sin
Just a quick examination of new testament doctrine when it comes to the sinful nature. We as God's creations are subject to the trial of our animal lusts and desire for pleasure. We are under the law until we are free under grace. We will not love our sinful natures more than we do God - we do not cling to the evil we work "after the flesh" but we value God enough to realise that we do not wish to sin. We are free already in Christ from sin, yet we will be emancipated from the prison of our flesh and will be sanctified in Christ. We will not be able to fall so easily.
