A Christian magazine recently published a typical humanistic approach to God’s mandate in Genesis 1:28 stating that humanity hasn’t done a very good job of obeying the Ten Commandments, except God’s words to Adam and Even in the Garden of Eden to be fruitful and multiply.

They state that the world’s population has now reached the seven billion mark and six of those billion have been added to the world in the last 200 years. The article continues to lament that as the population grows our resources are not able to keep up. The article is full of humanistic statistics of natural resource shortages, e.g. water.

However, what the article fails to consider is that most, if not all the countries mentioned, are Islamic or pagan in their religion and not under God’s covenant to bless. God’s covenant to bless and provide do not depend on natural resources, e.g. the children of Israel in the wilderness.

The article snidely states that we are not in Eden any more. They fail to consider that the reason we are not in Eden any more is because we have not learned the lesson in which Adam and Eve failed—to trust and obey. Yes, Genesis 1:28 and the Ten Commandments.

Do these unbelieving Christians not understand that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4)?

They also fail to mention that God reiterated the mandate to be fruitful and multiply outside of the Garden of Eden, on the flood damaged slopes of Mt. Ararat. Read Genesis 9:1-7.

Be encouraged. Colin
