Great Thread, and good thoughts by all!

Some who have read my previous posts on this Thread and the Psycho Babble Medicine thread...are aware that I have some pretty strong convictions...and that I have been a pastor for 20 years. ( Non-denominational, Independant Local Church)

I think of myself a little differently however, than whay most probabley envision when they think of a "pastor", "preacher" or "minister"...

I enjoy questioning things.
I invite question-answer discussions.
I decided a long time ago that any Plan Of Salvation or "Truth" above all other truths...MUST

That means, assuming one believes that Jesus Christ was the Son of God (and I do)...what about the 4,000 plus years of human existance BEFORE Jesus was born? ( and yes in it is my personal believe that mankind started in the Garden of Eden ( Adam & Eve) and I am willing to entertain any time period guesses between 6500 and 10,000 years, that man has existed. I said...while I am a Fundemental
Bible believing Christian...I DO understand that there are alot of questions that I have never gotten the answer to....yet.
And as previously stated...I am a firm believer that God is totally Fair, Just, Righteous..and that he loves Man very much. and wants us to discover our purpose on earth, love Him with all of hearts..,.and love our Neighbor as ourselves.

So any plan that someone puts forth, must take into account several THE WHOLE History of mankind...not just our Modern day,or the history of the United States... If God is who He says He is...we are told in the Book of Romans, 1 chapter

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

I have always taken that to mean that God doesnt play "Hide & Seek with us. He created us..and He desires that we get to know Him...and that He has always desired this, for all people..of all time periods.

The Earth, the Heavens, Stars, and complexities of the known Universe all point to a Intelligence my opinion.

The Earth and the Solar Systems could no more just "come together" in any type of Big Bang...any more than you or I could explode a box containing all 26 letters of the Alphabet....
and Out Pop an Entire Book!!!!! lol
please keep posting I am enjoying ALL your ideas.
