    Question: 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it > "Replenish" the earth. I always thought at God created us for the first time.. but this implies that the earth is being "replenished".

  • A disciple
    So MUCH "parroting" of others' sayings, and guessing at the meaning of Scripture! Why is it so neglected to teach the younger to be quiet and wait on the Lord? Knowledge and understanding comes by continuing in the Word in reading and DOING; and by asking in prayer and waiting for growth and maturity; and by time and patience, through proving faithful by many trials. A novice has none of THESE!
