21 And God created great whales, and euery liuing creature that moueth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and euery winged foule after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
26 ¶ And God said, Let vs make man in our Image, after our likenesse: and let them haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer the cattell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth.
28 And God blessed them, and God said vnto them, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer euery liuing thing that mooueth vpon the earth.
29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I haue giuen you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon the face of all the earth, and euery tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding seed, to you it shall be for meat:

@ Andre\' Petrossians
Hello Andre! You have written quite a sermon there: I find it very interesting. But there are a few things that you need to reconsider in order to “comply” with what the Bible is teaching. It is very important, when you make a statement, to back it up with a Book, chapter and verse; otherwise that statement remains your own opinion… Because of space restraint, I’ll take one issue at a time, if I may.
You say: “In God's plan to create man, He did not predestine man to sin, NEITHER DID HE FOREORDAIN REDEMPTION. We are not minimizing the importance of redemption, but only SAYING THAT REDEMPTION WAS NOT FOREORDAINED BY GOD. If it were, then man would have to sin.”
Now, here’s what Apostle Peter is saying in his First Epistle, Chapter 1: “18 FORASMUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YE WERE NOT REDEEMED WITH CORRUPTIBLE THINGS, AS SILVER AND GOLD, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 WHO VERILY WAS FOREORDAINED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, but was manifest in these last times for you…”
I can see your dilemma facing this “conundrum”. I agree that man was not preordained to sin; however, our omniscient God in His wisdom provided The Solution for sin, before it happened: THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST. There is a much deeper and more important issue connected to man’s creation and fall. Until next time, God’s blessings.

It says in the beginning and that is what I believe it means.

If you go to proverbs 8 around verse 22 to 31 you will see how God created the earth with wisdom and the family was there rejoicing over it's beauti.

fields has it right and if you go to Isaiah 45:18,19 you will see the earth established and created to be inhabited.

"In the beginning"...this does not say when. God created nothing in vain or void. It is His favorite place in the universe. The Bible does not disagree with science as some believe. This earth is millions of years old! This earth age was due to the destruction of the first earth age (because of Satan's pride, God had to destroy an age, not His children. This earth age is for each of us to decide who we will follow: God or Satan. The account of "creation" of land, vegetation & animal life are actually a recreation. He tells man & woman to "multiply, and replenish" the earth, not "start from scratch". Something happened for this earth to "begin again"...Satan's downfall. The word was can be (and I believe correctly) translated from the original Hebrew manuscripts as became as in "the earth became void". "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2Timothy 2:15. I know most people will not agree with me, be that as it may. God knows truth. Someday we will all know His Truth completely. May God bless and give understanding to those who seek it and ask Him for it. Amen.

"When god says, in chapter 29, I have given every herb bearing seed and tree yielding seed, to you it shell be for meat, does it mean that humans were supposed to eat vegetables?"
Originally they did. Then, after the flood, God told Noah he could eat kosher animals. Then a long time later Peter had a vision from God telling him he could eat all animals. I think that's right.

I believe the Light was Jesus and the evidence of this comes from Jesus himself who speaks He is the Light of the world. What confirms it for me comes in 2 Corinthians 4:1-6.
