So what was before the big bang? Quantum Foam? Lmao! You do not know? So matter and energy must have created itself? How? Some idiots on this feed claim matter and energy is eternal.
The word “before” did not apply prior to the initial expansion of the singularity because that is also when time became operational. Of course water was created where did it come from?
Water is co-eternal with God. He divided them with a firmament he called Heaven (Genesis 1:7), then divided the waters below to create land, which he called Earth (Genesis 1:10). If you say the waters were part of the Earth he created in Genesis 1:1 then there’s two Earths.
Thomas Aquinas’ Five Ways to Prove the Existence of God: The First Way: Motion. The Second Way: Efficient Cause. The Third Way: Possibility and Necessity. The Fourth Way: Gradation. The Fifth Way: Design.
1. An unmoved mover violates the law of reciprocal action.
2. Radioactive decay is uncaused.
3. Conservation laws point to mass-energy being necessary rather than contingent.
4. The best item of a set may not be objectively good.
5. Evolution presents a simulacrum of design.
God brought it up with Adam because Adam is the head of the house; the dominion on the Earth. The point was that Eve was deceived and Adam was not. That point determines competency.
If Adam was not deceived then he sinned willingly, while Eve only sinned through error. Yet Paul treats Eve’s sin the greater.
The human mind may perceive truth only through thinking, as is clear from Augustine.
Aquinas (Q32 A1 O3): “I answer that, It is impossible to attain to the knowledge of the Trinity by natural reason.”
“To be united to God in unity of person was not fitting to human flesh, according to its natural endowments, since it was above its dignity; nevertheless, it was fitting that God, by reason of His infinite goodness, should unite it to Himself for man’s salvation.” – Aquinas
The fun part is when Aquinas explains how the union of divinity and human flesh can be possible with a God who by nature cannot change.
The Ontological Argument
Hell is full of people who worked tirelessly to get there. Don’t blame GOD. HE provided a way out. Repent, Jesus can redeem your soul!
For hell to exist for infinite time, God must work tirelessly to supply infinite energy, otherwise hell will just burn out. So God does his part too, see?
There is no conflict between science and the Bible
BIBLE: The first thing to appear in the universe, before any evolution, was a conscious being.
ALSO BIBLE: This being could make trillions of galaxies in the same amount of time, 24 hours, that it took him to make sea life and birds on one planet.
AGAIN BIBLE: This being pronounced everything he made as good just before a talking serpent suborned the first woman into disobedience.
ALSO BIBLE: A wind could evaporate 1.1 billion cubic miles of rainwater.
BIBLE REDUX: Dead people resurrect and float into the sky.
BIBLE ONCE MORE: This being was frightened that humans, in the stone age would build a structure, sans steel reinforcement tall enough to invade his turf in the sky.
ALSO BIBLE: Two million migrants wandered a peninsula the size of West Virginia without leaving a trace.
BIBLE HAS ONE MORE GO: The rotation of the Earth was started and stopped to provide extra hours of daylight for a battle and this was never recorded by the Egyptians nor by the Han Dynasty, neither did the friction of the still-moving interior mantle against the non-moving crust melt the crust.
It is impossible to obey the Law of God no one can, it is Christ in a Man that does this, that’s why we are saying let no man “boast for it is by Grace ” the Law is Holy , just and Good” we need Christ to give us power to obey . Grace to Grace we are saved.
The Law of God says it is entirely possible to obey the Law of God.
Deuteronomy 30:14 Your own book says it is entirely possible to obey it.
Deuteronomy 30:14 “But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.”

Thus making the Hill of the Foreskins into the Mountain of the Foreskins.
Believer: “Okay, atheist smarty-pants, where did the low entropy we’re running on ultimately come from? Whence the Past Hypothesis?”
Me: “The Big Bang scattered hydrogen uniformly throughout space, but to gravity this is like standing a pencil on its sharpened tip.”
God’s preferred denominations are:
Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
This is how far Jesus and the devil could see if the devil took him to the highest mountain on Earth. All the kingdoms of Earth do not fit in that red circle. Jesus was not impressed with such a small offer and turned the devil down.
Aquinas’s first demonstration of God’s existence is the argument from motion. He drew from Aristotle’s observation that each thing in the universe that moves is moved by something else.
If you sit on a sled and throw bricks, your sled moves in a direction opposite from the moving bricks. This is the conservation of linear momentum. An “unmoved mover” violates this law.
Aquinas is getting here at per se (essentially ordered) series, and, guess what, they don’t occur through time. They occur here and now. Like gravity causing everything to fall to the ground here and now. This kind of causation is simultaneous. You might want to research more
We have detected gravitational waves with LIGO/VIRGO and confirmed they move at the speed of light. This observation rules out simultaneity and “action at a distance” for gravity. Newton suspected this when he wrote the Principia, but he didn’t know the details.

St. John says that makes you a non-Christian.
1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
Believers: “God is on the top of Mt. Olympus.”
Hikers: “Nope, nothing here.”
Believers: “God moved into the sky.”
Wright Brothers: “Empty skies.”
Believers: “God’s in orbit now.”
Yuri Gagarin: “I see no decadent Western god up here.”
Believers: “God moved to the planet Kolob in the exact center of the Milky Way.”
Sir Roger Penrose: “Here’s an infrared movie of the core, you can see there’s a black hole in the center shredding stars.”
Believers: “God moved to a brane that does not intersect our space-time.”
Atheists: “Brane and brane! What is brane!”

No, Yeshua son of Miriam was a historical person.
“Christ” means messiah. Messiahs don’t get nailed to crosses by the very Romans he’s supposed to thump himself.

Also Lord (Mark 4):
 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

All the kingdoms of the Earth are owned by Satan.
 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world…
 And the devil said…All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me…

 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
