Christianity--Church History/Gen 19

While indepth and generally worthwhile, your answers take liberties which are not there. In this case, the L-rd never took human form, not even in Genesis 19. Rather "Abraham perceived the L-rd" much like we perceive His presence in our own lives, albeit more clearly and presently. Abraham saw the angels, not G-d and indeed Scripture is clear that "no one can see G-d and live". Even Moses, the only person to ever speak to G-d face to face could only see His attributes. Shalom!

We can help with any questions about the history of God's working with mankind from Creation to the Apostles, most questions about the period from the Apostles to "modern Christianity" (90 to 325 AD) and most questions about the confusion within "world Christianity" from 325 AD to the present 33,830 documented denominations. We can discuss major doctrinal differences and their origins but we will not engage in debates over doctrines. We try to avoid trivia unless it had a non-trivial effect or is just really interesting, IOHO. Please do not submit homework questions.
