Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Bible Contradiction?

"How can Adam die when he ate the forbidden fruit, and then live to 930?"

"But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die" (Genesis 2:17).

CONTRADICTION: "And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died" (Genesis 5:5).

EXPLANATION: Adam died the moment he sinned and broke fellowship with God--the Source of all life. At that second, death entered his body and he began to degenerate (to age). The Bible also tells us that a “day” to the Lord is a thousand years to humanity (see 2 Peter 3:8), and Adam died within that “day.”
