Let's talk about Adam's family. No, not The Addam's Family with Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, and Lurch. But, Adam, as in Adam and Eve. A very truncated discussion of Adam's progeny is found in Genesis Chapter 5, starting, obviously, with Adam and ending with Noah. Mainly, it is the godly side of Adam's lineage that is in view, as opposed to the ungodly side found in Genesis Chapter 4. The account extends for about 8,000 years and...

Sin is not done in a vacuum, and the extent of sin's effective is often long-lasting and diverse. Such was the case of the first murderer, Cain. After being convicted and judged by God, he leaves the realm of the Eden, starts a family, builds a city, and then manages to influences his offspring to commit further acts of perversion against God, starting with an attack up the sanctity of marriage. Lamech, one of Cain's great, great, ...

Soon after the fall of man, and God's judgment placed upon creation, a manifestation of the ugliness of sin takes place in Adam's posterity. Adam and Eve begin their family, bearing Cain and his brother Abel. Cain was a farmer. Abel was a sheepherder. Both knew the religious obligations taught to them by their parents, which is why we read of the account of their religious offerings in Genesis 4. Cain's mind, though, was not upon w...

In the previous podcast, Dr. Paul began an exposition of the trial of Adam, Eve, and the devil, and that after Adam and Eve fell from their originally innocent state into sin. In this podcast, Dr. Paul finishes that up that trial by looking at the judgment that God passed on both the woman (Eve) and the man (Adam), which will eventually be passed on to every human being since. It is not a pretty picture, but one that is necessary t...

Shortly after Adam and Eve rebel against God, a trial takes place where God acts as the judge, jury, and executioner. Adam and Eve try to avoid attending the trial by hiding themselves. The snake (i.e. the devil) makes no such move. Four key questions are asked, which are relevant even today, as the rest of humanity has followed Adam and Eve's leading in trying to run and hide from God, rather than run unto Him in a contrite and re...

In a pivotal and key portion of the Bible (Genesis 3:1-7), Dr. Paul discusses the Fall of Man and how it came about. Satan, as the serpent, has used the same strategy since his successful exchange with Eve to cause humanity to act autonomously from God and carry on it rebellious ways. It all starts by questioning God's Word, which ultimately leads to questioning God's authority and then integrity. When all is said and done, those w...

In Genesis 2:4-24, the writer returns to the creation narrative and adds a few more details that are not found in Genesis 1. Those details are "generations" or "histories." Moses, as is frequently credited with writing Genesis, tells us that man's constitution was physically made up of "dust" ore elements common to the earth, as well as "the breath of life" from God, thereby making him a "living creature." As Dr. Paul points out, t...

Dr. Paul finishes up his commentary on the last four verse of Genesis 1, which addresses the subject of God charging mankind to "get busy" and fill the earth with human beings and the subjugation of the created order by them. Then, Dr. Paul turns to the subject of God resting on the seventh day. Was God tired from exerting himself too much after creating the heavens and the earth or was God establishing a model to be followed by hu...

On the sixth day of creation God finished inhabiting the earth with all the animals, birds, and creatures. But, it was also on that day that he created human beings: the crown jewel of his creation. Not only did the creation of humans give a glimpse into the Trinitarian nature of God by stating, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness," it has left theologians and philosophers with a subject that has been discussed volumi...

Secular scientists and philosophers frequently opine about the existence of all that is, but rarely traverse their way back to the origin of existence. It is not that they do not speculate about the age of the universe or perhaps even the age of the earth. It is that it is impossible for the to speak authoritatively, since none of them were around when the universe began, nor were they any human beings around at all! Therefore, the...

One of the best ways to understand God's creation and man's place in it is to go back to the beginning when God created all things and then follow the progress of how things went from "very good" to "every intention of the thoughts of [man's] heart was only evil continually." Dr. Paul's new study in the Book of Genesis does just that. He not only credits God for all that is created, but will explain how God managed to recreate fall...

In Romans 16:17-27, the Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Roman Christians with instructions that are clearly at odds with today's ideas about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Paul warns the church in Rome about certain characters who would be divisive and scandalous. Those individuals were not only NOT Christians, even though many of them most likely wanted to be thought of as such, they were deceivers who would use Christian...

As Paul begins to close his letter to the Romans, he takes timeout to greet his many friends and fellow co-workers in the Lord. Paul lists 26 individuals by name, along with several others not named specifically. It is further evidence that even though Paul had not founded the church in Rome, his personal influence was acknowledged over the course of the years, as well as the thousands of miles he traveled sharing the "good news" o...

As the Apostle Paul approaches the end of his letter to the Roman Christians, he reiterates his plans to visit them prior to journeying further to Spain. There was no more work for him to do, and finally the opportunity had arisen whereby he could now take the gospel to "the end of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Dr. Paul, though, points out that the Apostle's Paul journey was filled with difficulty and intrigue that he probably did not ful...

As the Apostle Paul winds down his letter to the Christians in Rome, he reminds them of his call to the Gentiles. That his ministry and priestly service was to spread the gospel to those who had not heard, so that their converted lives would be acceptable to God. Paul was sold-out on his mission, and serves as example to those who claim to be Christians, but seem content in their apathy and complacency.

In Romans 15:8-13, the Apostle Paul stresses the fact of Jesus' servitude to the Jews, as well as the Gentiles. The purpose was to not only reveal the truth of God in a real, tangible way, but to, as Paul wrote, "confirm the promises given to the patriarchs" and "that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy." Paul then resorts to showing from the Law, Writings, and the Prophets how the Gentiles were now a part of God's chosen ...

All kinds of groups these days are clamoring for unity, whether in sports, politics, or even moral standards. The problem with their pleas is that none of them have an objective standard by which to validate the unity effort. In Romans 15:-7, the Apostle Paul addresses the subject of unity within the Christian faith. There were apparently some within the Church at Rome who were mature, except in the area of recognizing their obliga...

Fresh off instructing the Roman Christians to cease judging one another, the Apostle Paul drives home his instruction by telling them to refrain from placing any stumbling blocks before each other as well. Instead, they were to focus on what matters in the Christian faith, which is to live by faith and build one another up in the faith. Why? Because not all Christians are equally mature, and some take more time and nurture than oth...

In Romans 14:1-12, the Apostle Paul warns the Roman Christians about condemning fellow Christians regarding the eating of certain foods or worshiping on certain days. In one instance, the condemnation is legalistic, while in the other it is libertarian; both of which are self-indictments when considering the maturity of the Christian who engages in them. Let God do the judging and let the Christian focus on the main things involvin...

In Romans 13:8-14, the Apostle Paul stresses what Jesus had talked about when asked about the greatest commandment. The exception is Paul addresses human relationships, specifically within the church. Christians are to love one another, and then by way of extension, love others. They were not to be like the world, whereby illicit sex and drunkenness were the order of the day. But they were to exemplify Jesus Christ, refrain from lu...
