Discussion for Wisdom of Solomon 2:23

  • This is not bogus. God 's purpose for us was for us to be immortal. That 's why he created us in his image. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: The reason why God told Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree because they would know good and evil. Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. We couldn 't be immortal knowing good and evil. 1 Corinthians 15:21 For since by man came death,.... Because of Adam 's sin, death came into the world. God made us to be immortal
  • actually what salomon is trayin to say is that that God did not let Adam live to be at least 1000 years wich was going to be a day for ADAM as it was for God. after disobedience they will have to wait for redemption from the last Adam to be immortal. with JESUS having conquer death we have access to immortality
  • Of course man was made to be immortal. He was made in the image of his Father. But man missed the mark and fell into corruption. He fell so far he actually thought he could hide from God. And death passed upon all men. But even as in Adam all die, in Christ will all be made alive. Jesus has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light. There is much we have misunderstood. But the Holy Spirit will make the Living Word come alive in our hearts and minds.
  • Maybe God's original design for humans was to be immortal- Adam and Eve were until they disobeyed God by eating of the fruit- and for that they will 'surely die', which they later did, so they at that point of eating the fruit switched from being immortal to mortal (capable of dying). But if they didn't eat of it, they probably would have stayed immortal forever.
  • Sameer Dighe for verse 23
    Yes this is bogus. It contradicts the Book of Genesis. If God made man incorruptible or immortall, then what was the point God warning Adam/Eve not to eat fruit from the forbidden tree?
  • It's bogus. There's a reason this book is not accepted in the canon of the Bible, since it contradicts other verses.
