    I'm in agreement with quite a bit of what he has to say, especially Western Church traditions.

    Cool. I haven't spent much time looking into Hebrew Roots (and other similar flavors) in a long time.

    No. I've just heard Rood's name from past experience.

    What feedback did you get?

    I can't say it will help you much as my personal persuasion has changed over the years, but I'll put it this way: I think that any time a Christian has an interest in gaining an historical perspective of their faith, then it's a good thing. I think Rood is an outlet to do that.

    Having admitted to having to enjoying talking Bible over on the Gay Marriage thread, I figure I'd pop on this thread rather than cloud that one.....

    So.... riddle me this....

    In Genesis 1, God's busy creating things. Of course, they are being created in an order, specifically as follows:

    OK, fair enough. There are things living in the water, birds flying around... After that, we get cows and such. Good deal. Then along comes Mankind, created male and female. Fine.

    But.... when we get to Genesis 2,

    Wait... what?

    Now, interpretation aside, Genesis 1 makes it clear that the last of God's creation was man. But, here God's telling what may be a lie to Adam (That he'll die when he eats a certain fruit, but where he does and doesn't die that day (and the issue we were having over on the gay marriage thread)) prior to bringing out of the ground and forming birds and every animal .... One might assume Birds were brought out of the waters in Genesis 1, though it doesn't appear to me that's made explicit, but... what we can be sure of is Birds were around a full two verses before God made man... and in Genesis 2, it's clear God and Adam have been chit chatting about gardening and getting Adam a partner before there were birds and "every animal"

    Incidentally, did God actually think Adam should be paired up with some animal?

    He says "it's not good for you to be alone, I'll get you a partner" and proceeds to make a bunch of animals that are, to be sure, most dissimilar to a human. So.... What's up with this? I mean, ultimately God puts Adam to sleep and makes woman.....

    When did God figure this out? After Adam had named ... what... a couple million species (It does say "Every living creature" after all) any of which he might have chosen for his "partner" but doesn't only then God figures out that he should create a woman?

    Couldn't he just have easily created woman when he created man? (Indeed, Genesis 1 suggests that what he actually did in the first place.... but... even if that interpretation were the case, Woman's clearly not around the garden as our characters take the stage in Act II. ) And then had them name all the other things he either had already created or would soon create?

    One is literally the birds of the air, the other is metaphorically the birds of the air, but literally popeye's chicken. Specifically spicy Popeye's chicken.

    Which leads to the question, if there was Popeye's chicken, wtf was Eve doing eating an apple?

    That's right! The serpent hypnotized her and stole her popeye's chicken. And her red beans and rice too... but probably not her biscuits because they're just "ok"

    It sure was classy of the snake to not "take her biscuits"

    You're an idiot if you think Popeye's biscuits are just ok. They are a buttery delight. Btw spicy chicken is a must if eating Popeye's as the plain is...well...plain.
