Some thoughts (all scriptures from NKJV): The earth may have been watered by other than rain. Quote:Gen.2 5-6 For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and wa

I have to admit that I have never heard that there was no rain before the flood. I'm curious how you came to that conclusion?? When I read through Genesis 1, particularly vv. 6 and 7: Quote:Genesis 1:6-7 (ASV) "And God said, Let there be a fi

I agree with everything you said. However I will say that as I study history, that although it is hotly debated. Many Christian historians believe that in the early Church, baptism by emmersion was the norm, accept where it was impossible to do so. T

Originally, man was made in the image and likeness of God, but today we are asked to believe in a god made in the image and likeness of man. The Creator is reduced to the level of the creature: His omniscience is called into question, His omnipotency

1. There is no The New Park Street Pulpit, Vol. VII. That series only has 6 volumes and that's why you couldn't find it. 2. However, the quote does exist in The Metropolitan Pulpit, Vol. VII on p. 225 and it is attributed to C.H. Spurgeon. 3. Ther

Exactly. We have a tendency to use our experience to verify the truth of something and that was the point he was making. God's Word is absolutely true period and doesn't require our personal experience to verify it. The Truth stands firm in all of t
