Bible teaser
« on: Jul 28, 04, 06:34:22 pm CDT »

"Adam was made from dust, but I was made first;
I was made before man, in answer to God's plan;
A living being I became, and Adam gave me my name;
Then from his presence I withdrew, and more of Adam I never knew;
My Maker's laws I did obey, and never from them went astray;
Thousands of miles I travel in fear, but seldom on earth do appear;
For a purpose only God did see, He put a living soul in me;
This soul God did claim, taking from me the soul again;
Once from me the soul had fled, I was the same as when made;
So without hands, feet, and soul, I travel from pole to pole;
Laboring hard by day and night, To give fallen mankind great light;
Many people who are young and old, by my death will great light behold;
Right and wrong I cannot conceive, nor the Scripture can I believe;
Although my name therein is found, they are to me as empty sound;
Fear of death doesn't trouble me, and happiness I never see;
To Heaven I'll not go, nor to fiery hell below;
As these lines you slowly read, search your Bible with great speed;
My name is written there, and that I honestly declare!"

When would be appropriate to post an answer?

Or shall I just leave you guessing for a week, being the vicious beastie that I am (yeah, Right!)

Ah, Eric, much as we both might enjoy that spanking, you have still not guessed correctly.
I'll give you until tomorrow morning then. I will post before I head to the office.....

You might wanna clarify "Living Thing". To me the Earth is just as alive as I.

Nope to all.
I agree the Earth is a living thing, or a multitude thereof, however this particular thing had to be able to leave Adam's presence while both remained alive.
