You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.
Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.
RomansIf the law wasn't given to Moses until the Hebrews were in the wilderness at Mount Sinai; how did Noah know the difference between clean and unclean animals, how did Abraham know to tithe and how did the Hebrews in Egypt know to keep the Sabbath?

That verse does not fit the question....Before the law was given, people did live aware of standards that the law covered....Why? I think it was simply because it made sense...as most laws do...As living Gods way does make sense.A number of God's requirements were known and practiced prior to their
codification in the covenant that Moses' people made with God at Sinai. For
• Gen 26:5 . . Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments,
my statutes, and my laws.
Perhaps you misunderstood DanielVision's requirements back in post No.1That verse does not fit the question
Ok What was the law given? Take dominion? We fail there, Be fruitful? Ok. How have we replenished the Earth, with so many starving?Law was given in the Garden ,
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Gen 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
I think the point made by Reba1 is that it was at the time man ate of the tree of knowledge that they became aware of good and evil.Ok...I reread the entire passage/chapter...I'm afraid I still don't see your point...Could you explain it as though I have dementia?
Mankind was created a little beneath the angels Heb 2:7 and given the knowledge of evil / rebellion from God when they ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge Gen 3:22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.''.If the law wasn't given to Moses until the Hebrews were in the wilderness at Mount Sinai; how did Noah know the difference between clean and unclean animals, how did Abraham know to tithe and how did the Hebrews in Egypt know to keep the Sabbath?
Read the whole passage
I am at fault here. I should have quoted these passages...Ok...I reread the entire passage/chapter...I'm afraid I still don't see your point...Could you explain it as though I have dementia?
Thank you I do see your point.... In the Bible, the word 'Word, Law, command, judgement and the like' are often interchangable, so I can see where you are coming from. You're right, a persons spirit knows, even if his mind does not, the difference between right or wrong. Right from the garden...I am at fault here. I should have quoted these passages...
Gen 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Gen_3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
Gen_3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
We can carry this over to Noah. ETC
Gen 7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
Gen_26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
Although these passages use the word 'command' I an not of the belief that God needs to say this is a command for His Word to be a command. He sovereign. Thinking down the lines of when mom said " go clean your room' she did not need to say this is a commandant or this is law. We tend to lump the word LAW into what was given to Moses , i believe the 'law' is well beyond what was given to Moses.
Moral laws are written on our hearts. We are created in God's image.
Even the Gentiles had to follow these laws under Judaism. (Over 20 verses in the OT say this, and over a dozen in the NT also)And all the Levitucal laws were given to set the Children of Israel apart from the rest of the people groups?
