Comment: I'll try to answer that deacon

In reply to comment: where in any bible does it say (see in situ)

I'll try to answer that deacon

1.) You are correct, America is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible although many try to foolishly force that into Scripture.

2.) Adam did walk with God in the garden of Eden. Now this was before sin entered in. After that, it does not say anywhere that Adam saw God, but rather heard Him and was in great fear as he tried to cover his nakedness.

Once sin entered the world, man could never look upon the face of a holy God and live as God Himself tells us (" Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live" is what God said to Moses)

3.) Moses did not write the 10 Commandments.

They were written by the finger of God and given to Moses on 2 tablets of stone, who was then to give the Law to the people of Israel (and all mankind thereby).

That "Law" was to show all mankind his futility in trying to be right and just with God by keeping all the Commandments ( for no man could do that ) and therefore the Law was a schoolmaster that would point us to Christ ( the "Way" and only Way to salvation).

Christ DID keep the whole Law perfectly, He fulfilled it, and thereby could take upon Himself the sins of His people ( Matthew 1:21 ) and pay for all those sins, and the resurrection of Christ was the proof that Christ did pay the penalty of sin in full, so that all who would believe on Him ( and ONLY those who would believe on Him as Savior ) would be saved.

Moses never saw the "face of God" but only the hinder part of Him as He passed by Moses who was hidden in a cleft of a rock, and because of that, Moses face shone so bright, he had to cover it with a vail when he came down from the mountain.

Hope this helps!
