Adam and others lived for so long  because they are closer to  perfection than we are today. It was God's original purpose that all humans would live forever in peaceful conditions in paradise on earth. When Adam and Eve decided that they no longer wanted to follow  God's right to rule and became disobedient, in … Read more
