There is no difficulty whatever in the Scriptures [regarding this question]; the difficulty comes in the attempt to reconcile the truth of the Bible with an impossible theory of human invention.
"In the thoughts of man there are a great many questions which arise concerning himself. Some of these are highly important. So important indeed are they that the Word of God itself has recorded them. Nor is that all. This Word has not only recorded the questions, but it has also recorded the answers to the questions." What happens when a man dies?" A. T. Jones
- Is man mortal or immortal?
- Where do men go when they die?
- If a man dies, shall he live again?
- Do the dead praise the Lord?
"But, it being true that the promised Messiah was known from the time of the fall, the supposition that Christ, between his crucifixion and his resurrection, went to preach the gospel to those who lived before the time of Abraham, or before the flood, amounts to nothing." ~Ellet J. Waggoner
The Pagan maxim, which too many quote as though it were Bible, is, “God helps him who helps himself.” But the truth revealed in the Bible is that God helps the man who is not able to help himself.
