God made Adam and Eve sterile after the Fall, what if?


#1

After the fall, God could have made Adam and Eve sterile and allow the human race to die out. He could have created a new Adam and Eve that only said yes to God and his love.

Could this have something to do with Isaiah 55:11?

11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

No. God is saying that what He says will be accomplished. Don’t forget, He is speaking through a prophet.

God could have done all sorts of things, but He did what He did, and it really is rather idle speculation to try to imagine other things God could have done, since what He does is perfect already.
