THE BOOK OF GENESIS CHAPTER 3: VERSES 22-23 BARES OUT THE FACT THAT...IN ORDER FOR ADAM TO LIVE FOREVER HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO CONTINUALLY EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE...
SAW TO IT THAT HE DIDN'T.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Nowhere in there did it say that Adam would have had to eat from the tree "continually", but regardless, it does reinforce what I said, namely that Adam wasn't immortal to begin with. Adam was going to die, and he did. Fruit or no fruit.

It's also interesting that God refers to himself in the plural.

How do you figure,'Before Constantine, the RCC did not exists?
For once, I really wish one of yous would provide something to back this up. Please... I'm on my knees begging the fundies to seek truth and not slander.
I've listened to you guys throw the 'Constantine' accusation my whole life. The last 3 yrs I been pleading with the people on this forum to state why they believe he started the Roman Catholic Church. Is it because you see the title 'Roman' and assume he must of installed that title when Rome legalized Christianity"? Is it because he called a council and asked that order be brought?
Clearly and irrefutably, Catholic teaching is the same before Constantine and after. We have tons of documents from the Church pre 313 AD and post.
You guys are only interested in conspiracy scenarios about the Church that Christ started. I find so many of you deliberately ignoring truth and spreading propaganda and slander about the Roman Catholic Church, yet oddly, referring to yourselves as 'Christians' in the same breath.
Proof from Scripture, the Catholic church was not built by Christ as you claim, or Christ forgot that he did!!!!!!

In Rev I find Christ said to John:
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write;
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write;
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write;
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write;
But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira,
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write;
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write;
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;

There a 're several.
Legally He is the first born of Joseph ..as his adopted.
Physically He US Mary's son
And yes please don't start the arguments again on that..anyone.
ON if she US his mother
All these genealogy sites,say He is the DIRECT DESCENDANT IF DAVID...through Mary as His MOTHER.
And Joseph as His adopted father.
And they are NOT JUST CATHOLIC ONES.
One actually is,Jewish
**********
Mary and Joseph were both Jewish.
America's laws (until recent ones) have been based on Judeo/Christian
Principles, and at least one state (maybe all of them) says that the "resident father is the legal father". I am familiar with that one.
Joseph was not a legally adoptive father; he was called by God to, "take Mary to wife". Legally, then, by Judeo principles, Joseph was the legal father.
KayMarie
as I have said so many times, when Joseph said "His name Is Jesus". this according to the jewish law as as well as tradition, meant that he was the legal parent for evermore. and when the went back and found Him, mary said "your father and I were worried.

and much later, the other villages said "is not this the carpenter's son?"

As do we pray to God alone. Not that it matters,…..can you explain Rev 8:3??
While your added it explain Rev 5:11-14 too.
The role of our Blessed Mother and other Saints is to bring followers for her son The Christ!
To deny that Saints and others are not with Christ, is to deny Christ’s promised.
To the thief on the cross “today you will be with me in paradise.’
SO YES, SAINTS HEAR OUR PRAYERS!!!!!!!!!
The new 21st century churches can not go around changing rules.
We go by what the Apostles were taught by Jesus himself.
Your interpretation of the Bible does not count! Sorry!
**********

Did you notice that he didn't say "DEAD" saints? All of the church are saints according to the Bible. They don't need the CC to appoint them to sainthood.

Peter original name was Simon or Simeon, Christ
promised to confer the primacy upon him and give
him an Aramic surname,“Kephus,’ or Rock of which
Petros is the Greek and Petrus the Latin
translation.
So Peter is the rock.
Jesus is the foundation.
"Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona ... Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church." (Matt. 16:17-19).
Acts 5: 12 - 16 [PETER’S SHADOW]
12 Now many signs and wonders were done among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon's Portico.
13 None of the rest dared join them, but the people held them in high honor.
14 And more than ever believers were added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women,
15 so that they even carried out the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and pallets, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them.
16 The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
There is ample evidence in the New Testament that Peter was first in authority
among the apostles. Whenever they were named,
Peter headed the list (Matt. 10:1-4, Mark
3:16-19, Luke 6:14-16, Acts 1:13); sometimes the apostles were referred to as "Peter and those who were with him" (Luke 9:32).
Peter was the one who generally spoke for the apostles (Matt. 18:21, Mark 8:29, Luke 12:41, John 6:68-69), and he figured in many of the most dramatic scenes (Matt. 14:28-32, Matt. 17:24-27, Mark 10:23-28).
On Pentecost it was
Peter who first preached to the crowds (Acts
2:14-40), and he worked the first healing in the Church age (Acts 3:6-7).
It is Peter’s faith that will strengthen his brethren (Luke 22:32) and
Peter is given Christ’s flock to shepherd (John 21:17). An angel was sent to announce the resurrection to Peter (Mark 16:7), and the risen
Christ first appeared to Peter (Luke 24:34). He
headed the meeting that elected Matthias to
replace Judas (Acts 1:13-26), and he received the
first converts (Acts 2:41). He inflicted the first punishment (Acts 5:1-11), and excommunicated the first heretic (Acts 8:18-23). He led the first council in Jerusalem (Acts 15), and announced the first dogmatic decision (Acts 15:7-11).
It was to Peter
that the revelation came that Gentiles were to be baptized and accepted as Christians (Acts 10:46-48).

Noooooo...

Lets say it does read as you say (which it does not) then that would contradict the rest of the Bible. Rather you and your Church just teach a false doctrine by twisting what is written. Jesus is the 'rock' upon which the church (body) was founded.

It's not a matter of understanding metaphor. I understand metaphors just fine. I'm not arguing that the Bible has to be interpreted literally rather than metaphorically. The problem is adding stuff to Genesis was wasn't put there, parable or no. If you want to say that Adam was supposed to understand that God meant "spiritual" death when that was never mentioned, then any part of the Bible can mean anything you want it to. Then it really would become an "unconnected set of words from beginning to end".
It's only as "connected" to reality as the people believe is the connection.

And they all perceive the supposed religious reality by different meanings.

Metaphor ... parable ... literal ... blah, blah, blah.

Who exactly do you believe ARE the "gentiles?"
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

gentile

late 14c., "chivalrous person; member of the nobility;" see gentile (adj.). Also used during 14c. to mean both "one who is not a Christian" and "one who is not a Jew." The Latin word was used in Vulgate to translate Greek ethnikos, from ta ethne "the nations," which translated Hebrew ha goyim "the (non-Jewish) nations."
