  • Peter
    Adam sinned now when there is trouble i hear people blaming it on God! Why has GOD allowed it etc. Well it is not that GOD allowed it but i think it is because Adam sinned and we now have free choice and so we accept Christ as our saviour and thru him, God. So as Christians our choice is made and now we have to have faith until the Judgement day. There will still be disasters etc. until then

    If you research Romans 16:20 you will find that Paul had his heels bruised by Satan physically because he preached what bruised Satan's head which was the Ram substitute provided to Abraham and also the dyed red Rams skins used by Moses for the covering of the Holy tent. The original Hebrew had a masculine pronoun, the King James version has it, and the Roman Catholics have she shall bruise.
