LOL! Bite your tongue, no! I’m just a retired, 72-year old OF trying to keep his mind busy till my horse drops.
You’re going to have to do better than that! Your “things of the Heavenly Kingdom” assumes that they still exist, somewhere not on Earth. Your assumption is false, of course, if they “were” on Earth, but ain’t anymore. I call your assumption and raise mine: They were on earth, but ain’t anymore.
“Apparently”? You’re a hoot!
Well, at least I’ve got to hand it to you: acknowledging that it was perfection, not, like some knuckleheads who try to say that it wasn’t perfect, it was “just good”.
But you argue like the silly atheists, heathen, and cockamamie Christians who have never heard of “The Catastrophe Theory”,
The Catastrophe Theory says that if you have an ideal, stable, dynamic system, it can undergo minor changes (i.e. perturbations) and can and will continue being an ideal, stable, dynamic system, … unless and until, that is, a singularity event occurs–kind of like the Big Bang that relativists are always jawing about, or a singularity point on the border between the ideal system and an imperfect, unstable, dynamic system.
In that case, the singularity event expands like a bat out of hell itself, rushing into the stable system, and wreaking havoc and grief everywhere. This confirms a principle, fairly well-known and often forgotten: The principle called “The fragility of the Good”.
The Good is fragile; the Bad is not. In order for a system to be stable and Good, beaucoup things must be true. In order for a system to be unstable and Bad, it only takes one thing to be unstable and go Bad. Good is fragile; Evil is an avalanche of rocks. The mystery isn’t why there is evil in the world, but why is there still some good? IMO, that’s my “proof” that there’s a God. I just don’t expect anyone else to belief it; consequently, I’m not surprised when others don’t.
What Adam and Eve started when they disobeyed God’s command was limited by God until Jesus was crucified, resurrected, and lifted up into Heaven, where He’s been preparing a place for those who follow Him.
You think the New Jerusalem will be on earth. So do the Mormons, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the Orthodox Jews. Me? I don’t care where it is or when it is revealed. It is enough for me now that I know that the Father is restoring His Kingdom through the Crucified Jesus and that I believe that “the lion will lie down with the lamb”.
What numbers? Adam’s 930 year lifetime? LOL! Cousin, do you think I’ll go to Hell if my numbers don’t match yours?
Goodness, Henry! Do you seriously think that if Adam and Eve had obeyed God, no one else would ever have disobeyed God. I’m sorry to be the one to break the news to you, cousin; but you’re dreaming.
