From this we learn that, though man did transgress, he was not deprived of the previous knowledge which he had of the existence of God. Lecture 2: Thirdly, God conversed with man after he cast him out of the garden.
Lecture 2: 22, 23, 24, Fourthly, God also conversed with Cain after he had slain Abel. Genesis 4: from the 4th to the 6th. Lecture 2: 30, 31, 32, What is the object of the foregoing quotation? It is that it may be clearly seen how it was that the first thoughts were suggested to the minds of men of the existence of God, and how extensively this knowledge was spread among the immediate descendants of Adam.
What testimony had the immediate descendants of Adam, in proof of the existence of God? The testimony of their father. And after they were made acquainted with his existence, by the testimony of their father, they were dependent upon the exercise of their own faith, for a knowledge of his character, perfections, and attributes. Lecture 2: 23, 24, 25, Had any other of the human family, besides Adam, a knowledge of the existence of God, in the first instance, by any other means than human testimony? They had not. For previous to the time that they could have power to obtain a manifestation for themselves, the all-important fact had been communicated to them by their common father; and so from father to child the knowledge was communicated as extensively as the knowledge of his existence was known; for it was by this means, in the first instance, that men had a knowledge of his existence.
Lecture 2: 35, How do you know that the knowledge of the existence of God was communicated in this manner, throughout the different ages of the world? By the chronology obtained through the revelations of God. How would you divide that chronology in order to convey it to the understanding clearly?
