Reformed Theology And God said....The man said - theology of words/speech?  Calvinism
And God said….The man said – theology of words/speech?

In Genesis – God spoke the universe into being and Adam named the living creatures and spoke a poem about Eve.

A very non-crucial point but does that mean that Adam was created knowing words and language? Especially since he had to be able to listen to and understand the commandment given by God.

God's word is also at the heart of being a Christian and reveals to us who he is. Anyone with a theology of speech/words in relation to mankind?

Jeremiah 31:33 also states:

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Would the above verse point to the fact that it doesn't matter if a person does not have the ability to speak/read/hear cause God's law will be on the person's heart and so I would wonder if God just communicated directly to Adam's heart without him necessarily having the ability to speak or hear (even though he did come up with a poem for Eve)

Very messy post but just throwing out my thoughts.

Opposition of abortion necessitates promotion of adoption

What do you think? If churches believe that abortion is against God's word, should adoption be encouraged?

After all, where would unwanted babies be placed if they cannot be aborted.

As a follow up, do you or do you know of Christians who have intentionally adopted?

I think David Platt is a strong proponent of adoption and has adopted 2 out of his 4 kids.
