From Peter Bass - 21 Sep 2012

HI, it's me, Peter. I asked you a question about the sinful nature of animals a while back. I don't know how busy you are, but it has been nearly three weeks since I received an email from you. Just want to make sure you didn't forget about it in the midst of your work.

Thanks Regards,

Peter Bass

Dear Peter.

Frank Hoffman sent me an e-mail in response to yours to Him. YES! I'm 100% healthwise even though I'm 87 -

going on 88. I have just finished going through nearly 1000 e-mails that have built up over the last few days so if you have any more questions you won't have to wait for an answer.

I'm sorry Pal, yes I did overlook your question.

To answer your question - NO animals do not sin - they do not know the difference between good and evil like we do - they did not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil - that was mankind. The result of sin is death - animals die; therefor their bodies are sinful the same as ours - how/why are they sinful? Because mankind was given the dominion over all other creatures and what has hapened to us - happened to them because of us and the Devil - that is why they need forgiveness - for our wrongdoing.

Genesis 6:7. "And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord."

In Jesus' name;


P.S. Frank Hoffman is a Hebrew and his Wife is Greek - so they know their languages.
