Oh what a story to tell this week! Lol. Apostasy!
So, this week I passed by a reference from the church of someone who had asked for a DVD. Well, she lived in this really ghetto apartment building that was falling apart, for example the handrails were mostly fallen and taken away. Then, when we got into her house we find out she is a rather large lady. Its some kind of sickness, and she is a good person and all that, but she even herself said that she would need a van emptied out for her to be able to fit in and get to church. Well, we get there and find out her mother is a inactive member that is now receiving visits from Jehovah Witness. Well, we start teaching and then the apostasy comes. We talked about Jesus Christ, and they started talking about how Michael the archangel is Christ, and my companion decided to say it was Adam. Then when they heard Adam they started cursing him for the fall, which is more normal. But the thought that the fall had something to do with a sexual sin between him and Eve. Then the mother went on and talked about the sacredness of sex for a while, which is true, but funny to have this old lady talking about. Then the subject of Cain came up, and how there must have been other people before Adam because Cain married someone from a city. So, apparently Adam was simply the first prophet. There were plenty of people before him, but he was the first person God put on the earth to serve him. But there already were loads of people. And what about the dinosaurs! Well, I now have an answer. Apparently, they were the animals on the earth BEFORE Adam. See, when God put Adam on the earth Adam named all the animals of today and God killed the dinosaurs and put these newer animals on the earth. Alright, then we went on and talked about the foundation of the church. I said how without a foundation, anything would fall, like the apartment for example. Then the daughter talked about how the building didn't have a foundation, and in fact one other building in the complex had already fallen because there wasn't a foundation. AND, that this building already almost fell, but then it didn't for some reason. Lol.
That was a fun lesson.
Well, thanks all!
