Sorry, but mankind had a beginning. We were created from the dust of the ground. God breathed into Adam and he became a living soul. . Adam's intelligence wasn't floating around the universe until God decided to make his body out of the ground.God created our bodies from the dust of the ground.
Our bodies had a beginning. Our being has no beginning, just like God's being has no beginning.
It is not a diversion. It is an answer to a direct question.
Clearly, the question has to do with who our parents before our birth would be which directly ties into the OP where db made the observation:
Try to keep up.
Besides, your church teaches that Adam was first Michael the Archangel, correct? Sooooo....how did your god create Michael?
And yes, it is a bit of a diversion. Now, before we are adopted to God in Christ Jesus, all of us of course, have physical fathers. But they have nothing to do with our relationship with God or our adoption to Him. Instead, before we are in Christ Jesus, we DO have a 'father'--wrath. Eph. 2 tells us that outside of Jesus we are "by NATURE, children of WRATH."
So, yes, I am keeping up. But please DO answer my question about Michael the archangel becoming Adam--and also please show me that in the Bible.
