People were so evil in the times before Jesus walked the Earth, they may have thought it was impossible to live a sacred life and keep God’s commandments simultaneously. It could be they believed only the few blessed individuals could live accordingly to the Law. It was then that Jesus came to Earth in human form to prove it can be done … in human form to teach all of us it can be done!
Numerous individuals question the validity of biblical events. “How could that have happened? That’s not possible!”
Why don’t we merge science and religion to determine feasible events? Let’s remove our own intellectual limitations by asking:
there is a whole other universe complete with ‘aliens’ who are already aware of God’s heaven? They could be living in the afterlife in some sort of purgatory making reparations to reach heaven? Maybe they are lost souls awaiting judgment day, whereas the people who abided by God’s commandments already went home to heaven? The aliens may be just fallen angels.
Jonah was eaten by a prehistoric ‘submarine’ only to be seen by the unaware/ignorant people describing it as a ‘whale?’ Wouldn’t they give a child-like account of actual events? Maybe what appeared to them to look like a whale, complete with air vents from appendages, was actually a man-made vessel. Don’t we call the bottom level of ships a ‘belly?’ That belly could have sustained Jonah. Or maybe it was an actual extinct creature that we are not aware of.
the Earth had a longer rotation around the sun? A 24-hour day for us could have been longer during God’s creation of the Earth.
Adam and Eve were made in the image of God, but the process of evolution also had ape-like beings transformed into a human form simultaneously? It could be the evolutionary people are the lost souls given a chance to enter the kingdom of God or they could be the disciples of Satan (the fallen angel).
Adam and Eve ate the fruit of knowledge and the fruit changed their DNA? They could have had what we understand as a type of Down’s syndrome and the ingested fruit deleted the extra chromosome (and they became aware they were naked and gained knowledge)?
the scientific ‘carbon elements’ we use as evidence of historical markings are flawed? That measurement of time based on compounds may be inaccurate as human error is very possible or altered by a weather-related activity (a deep freeze?).
the Earth is the forewarned hell the Bible speaks of? This world is full of sin and evil mongers. There are demons all around us and we are killing each other as a result. Could we be living in hell right now? We are told Jesus will come and ‘fish’ the ones out who are obedient to God’s Word.
We are all born sinners with a will of our own (after eating the forbidden fruit). We may not have literally eaten the forbidden fruit, but because of our innate will, we probably would have been tempted and ate it nonetheless. Additionally, all our imperfections could be considered a sin as they are not mentioned in heaven (Jesus didn’t even have a broken bone). Heaven is pure and deific, divinely perfect with no illnesses or disorders. This would suggest that cancer, deformities and all illnesses of this Earth (anything that is not perfection) could be considered sinful or evil. That means as none of us are perfect, we all are sinners in need of God’s mercy and forgiveness. All of us.
I am not a biblical scholar (far from it!) but my faith is stronger than my deficient knowledge. Also, I am not in any way questioning God, nor His existance, just merely trying to suggest to the non-believers of the possibility that science only explains how God may have done things.
Don’t limit your spiritual faith from what appears to be far-fetched events. Eventually, science may explain all of God’s miracles, but know through Him, all things are possible. Question science, not your faith.
I dare you to think.
