Being the other thread was closed I will start another for feedback. Let me ask both sides. This may not be considered relative to the OP but I think it is. God created Adam and gave him some instructions, then he made a help meet from him. At this point in time can we assume God had a knowing relationship with all of mankind? Yes or No I am not sure what I mean by knowing but I think maybe I mean covenant or the kind of a relationship between husband and wife. Now answer that same question for these points in time and lets compare the answers. Noah Abram before name change Abraham after name change Moses When Herod became king 70 AD Presently My answers are, yes followed by seven no's. We can cover the why's later if anyone is interested.
