Regardless of whether you believe that Moses was talking literally or handling symbols the Genesis account clearly established the following:

a) God created Man

b) God made Man inherently free (his freedom illustrated on the fact that he was given the option to disobey)

c)Man disobeyed God, evil entered into the world.

d)As a result, man lost grace, and he will know pain and death.

Here, the basic point is whether you are going to believe the account or not as you are totally free to choose . For the authencity of contents is undisputable, the authorship of Moses strongly supported...

Now, from the beginning of Genesis itself,"he will strike your head", and throughout the Old Testament, the figure of a Redeemer, the Messiah, is often referred to. Different people have held different views about Who or What this Messiah can be

Jesus claimed to be this Messiah, "the one who takes away the sin (the condition of evil) of the world". This he did more than one time as illustrated in the New Testament whose authenticity of contents is beyond any especulation. Therefore, on deciding here, we are left with only three possible options: 1)He was a liar, 2)He was insane or 3)He was telling the truth

Jesus comes as one who is not, at any point ,compelling people to believe in Him. He INVITES

(remember the inherent freedom of man is solid biblical truth)people.

And what does this Jesus propose? That you receive Him into your heart. To me, it is amazing that an agnostic writer, Albert Camus, put it so well : "He only wanted to be loved and nothing else".

What is the result of receiving Him? You begin the walk back to the state of grace that was lost. It is a process, it is never completely finished. How is this possible? Because Jesus is a Spirit, the Spirit of God, Who coming to live in you transforms human nature into divine nature. But, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, you can't possibly understand this experience unless you live it.

Just like love.

Again, like Adam, you are completely free to choose.

Hi Felipe, I wish we were able to read the article at the same time we are leaving a comment, so that I could be more specific. I'm afraid my memory is not good enough to remember your words. So I will summarize my thoughts and keep them in general. I felt your article started out well enough. You gave several comments that were supported. But I felt the rest of your argument was weak and without enough information to inform the reader of "what" it is they can expect if they are to become a believer. To only say one has to experience it in order to understand does not make anyone feel pulled to want more. It merely leaves them unimformed. I think you need to find a way to put what you believe and experience into words so that others can better understand. ~Suede~
