Question Was There a Pre-Adamic Race?

Over the years I've heard now & then about the possibility that a human like race lived prior to Adam, or even in conjunction with Adam and this explains the huge difference in races amongst other things.

I'd like to hear the thoughts of others if you would...
Was there a race of beings on earth prior to Adam and humans?

Yes human like species existed before homo-sapiens (modern humans) came into existence, and some existed even along side modern humans.

The Neanderthals are just one of the examples.

No.

According to the teachings of Jesus Christ and those of the prophets and apostles, Adam and Eve were the first humans to be created by God.

They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.”

5 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:4-9


____

So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man. 1 Corinthians 15:45-49

____

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. Romans 5:12-14

That pretty much covers it...

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body." - Romans 8:18-23

I just thought that I'd add that the whole of creation "fell" or was "made subject to vanity by reason of him that subjected the same" and that, contextually, the "him" is Adam.

Was there a race of beings on earth prior to Adam and humans?
What do you believe and why? - Please provide scripture if you can..

Yes! And it does explain many things. Those that will not accept this truth say:
1. "Scripture tells us Adam was the first man." [1Cor.15:45].

And, so he was but he was the first man...IN THE LINE TO CHRIST. Not the first man on the earth. The Bible is His-story...all about Jesus, His family and how they affected the world.

2. "All races came from one man."

That is impossible and yet accepted by those that will not see. Those that cannot or will not see the truth of mankind being on earth before Adam deny it by being PC. They say that it is a racist theory.

3. "Eve is the mother of all living." [Gen.3:20]

And so she is for through her came our Saviour. We only live through belief in Him. If we are spiritually alive then He dwells in us and Eve is our mother.


Mankind, all races, were created on the sixth day. Adam was formed after the seventh day. A day to the Lord is as a thousand years.

You have opened a very interesting topic...and a very deep subject. It is, I believe, something all children of God should understand but one so few are willing to search. As you do don't allow detractors to throw "racist" in your face for it isn't true...it is their security blanket, a blanket that covers their eyes allowing them to remain in a perpetual state of blindness.

That would be as impossible as all races coming from Adam.

Who was taken aboard the ark to be kept alive? Some see animals...God shows us male and female of all flesh with the breath of life. What do you see?

Here's my theory: Adam and Eve were bi-racial, and these racial characterstics were preserved in noah and his sons...


or, more likely, God made different races at another time...how? He's God, he can raise from the dead, he command every baby leaving the womb starting tomorrow to be any race He wants.
