Before sin and thus before death, would the world have became too full

94 posts in this topic

When the world was perfect (before sin), there was obviously no death; so wouldn't the world have became too full eventually?

Welcome to Worthy

 

If we believe God is perfect and sovereign,

all powerful, we have to believe He had a plan.

That plan was sufficient to accommodate the number of people His plan called for.

 

He Himself said, 

 

Gen 1:31 : And God saw everything that He had made, and behold,

it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day

Probably not....   after some time we would just not have children.....   there would not be any real reason to over populate.

I believe he had a plan, but he describes what he had created as 'good' therefore nothing would have needed to change because it was perfect. Am I correct in saying that? If so, then if we had kept reproducing, wouldn't we eventually have too many people living on the Earth? We would have either had to stop having children or the earth would have had to be made bigger. It just seems to me that nothing should have to change when his original plan was perfect..

Well then are you suggesting that we would not have been able to make love with our partner anymore? There were no contraceptives.

No, because there was more dry land than there is now.  The topography of the earth was completely different than it is now.  Much of what was dry land before Noah's flood is now under water. So there would be plenty of land for people to live on had man never sinned.

I am curious, are you saying that the way things are currently going in this world....are not according to his will / plan?

The Earth would still become full, it would just take longer in that case.

No I am talking about his original plan. What possibly could his plan have been when the world became full?
