--- “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned” (Romans 5:12,

---The topic is death. Augustine came to this verse and said, see, Adam sinned and all have sinned through Adam, thus original sin clings to your genes and therefore all died. What about the genes of fauna and flora who did not sin?

---But, no one said anything about this. Luther, Calvin and all the Reformers.

---What was pronounced as death to Adam and Eve, was a decree by God that it should happen because it was part of His warning that it will happen to them, in the day that you eat of that fruit you will surely die.

---Satan spun his immortality of the soul story ever since Rebellion in Heaven since he was not extinguished by death yet. But his time and event is set and is bound to come.

---What the text is reading is that through Adam the pronouncement of universal death on this planet and surroundings became attached to humans fauna and flora. Decay even in the elements.

---Humans born afterwards become sinners through their own actions but can die because of this decree irrespective even before they become a sinner.

---Anyway, in the Greek of Romans 5:12 the words “therefore” and also “because” is technical Greek with a combination of particles and prepositions in an unusual way, and the Old Latin and Vulgate translated it completely wrong and many translations afterwards followed the Latin slavishly. But some scholars were sharp on this and picked the error up.

---So Lucifer heard that Christ was chosen to Create, which is natural because Christ is co-eternal with the Father and part of the Trinity, thus God, Yahweh, anyway, Lucifer as created being had not right to this.

--- John Milton was of the opinion on the origin of evil that “when God suffers sin to be done, hee also wils it to be done” (John Milton, De Doctrina Christiana, Works XV.67 published in 1825 as one can see in Paradise Lost lines 212 and 366.

---Milton got this wrong idea from Augustine, Aquinas and Ambrose.

---God did not will death, not will evil, not will anything negative and never will. That is the Adventist position and also the biblical position.

---Satan took the form of a serpent in Eden. The snake had wings and feet in those days.

---In the Tomb of Thutmosis III there are walking talking snakes with four feet and two wings. They are saying to the dead person “Life, Health, and prosperity” in Egyptian: ankh. Thutmosis III was the pharaoh of the Exodus whom Moses faced that March in 1450 BC.

---So Moses’ Genesis book written in 1460 BC had someone drawing the same as what Moses wrote in Midian before on the wall of Thutmosis III in 1450 BC. Amazing is it not?

---But our God came with hope in a hopeless situation and that is what this is all about.
