Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Did Adam Die After Having Eaten Of The Forbidden Fruit?
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. (KJV)
Genesis 5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. (KJV)
Note: The assumption of inconsistency is that there is only one kind of death, so Adam could not have both died after having eaten the apple, and lived for 930 years.
But in the Bible, there is more than one kind of death. There is spiritual death, which is separation from God, and there is physical death, which is when your heart stops beating. Adam suffered spiritual death upon eating the apple, and physical death many years later. Not a contradiction.
