For
this
purpose
it

-utterly

questions.ButnowI
repeat
,inthis
context
,
what
Ihavewritteninrelationto
other
subjects.I
have
PROVED
theexistence
of
God
,the
Creator
of
all.Ihave
PROVED
theinfallible
authority
of
theHolyBible,initsoriginalwritings,astheinspired
Word
of
God
.
The
first
humans
createdon
earth
werea
male
and
afemale
named
Adamand
Eve.
God
explained
fullytothem
about
His
government
-that
it
had
been
taken
fromtheearthbyprehistoricangels.
TheCreator
explained
tothefirst
human
pair
His
PURPOSE
in
producing
humanity
on
earth
-to
REPRODUCE
Himselfafter
Hisown
image
;tocreatein
humans
God
'sownholy
and
righteous
CHARACTER
.Butthisperfection
of
holy
character
CANNOTbeinstantaneouslycreatedbyfiat.
It
must
be
DEV
ELOPED
,
andhumans
must
make
theCHOI
CE
themselves!Thiswasrevealedclearlyto
Adam
.But
Adam
alsolistenedto
-and
believed
-Satan
,
through
hiswifeEve.
Adamhad
made
thedecision,saying,ineffect:
"AlmightyGod,
I
REJE
CTyouasLord
andRuler
-I
reject
your
government,Irejectyouasmy
spiritual
Savior,
and
Irejectyouasthe
Sourceofbasic
KNOWLEDGE.
I
want
youtokeepyourse
lfou
tofmy
affairs.Iwill
TAKETO
MYSELF
the
KNOWLEDGEOfwhatisgood
andwhat
isevil.Iwillgovernmyself;Iwilltake
careofmyown
spiritual
needs."
And
,ineffect,
God
replied:
"You
havedecided
-for
yourself
andyour
descendants.
Therefore
I
SENTENC
E
YOU
and
the
WORLD
that
shallbe
born
fromyouto6,000years
of
beingcutofffromme
-except
thosefew
during
that
6,000yearswhomIshallcall

"T
hereforeGo

your
own
governmentsover
nations
that
shallcomefromyou.Devise
your
ownreligions.Develop
your
ownsystem
of
KNOWLEDGE
and
means
of
disseminatingit.
Of
course,inallthis,
without
realizingit,
your
descendantswillbeinfluenced,led,
and
subtlydeceivedby
Satan
thedevil.But
YOU
have
made
thedecision.Those
of
your

are
thusdeceived
willnotbe
