What if they reach out, take the fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!

It wasnt the tree of life!

Adam and Eve were already eating from the tree of life. When they were thrown out of the Garden for eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil they lost the tree of life and began to die.

God told them not to eat of the forbidden tree thus they knew sin.

Was that the one and only god that favored the Jews that spoke to you through his written word???
Silly people!

Favored Israel until they were cut off for disobedience and disbelief. Then the Gospel went to all the world. Do you understand this, yes or no?

x - The Inquisition began and lasted into the 19th century.

It is not "religious history". It is specifically Catholic history.

They allowed all Christians except romanist for obvious reasons. The atheist was allowed just not in politics. Jefferson was from Virginia. And i would certainly argue what was founded in DC has never been good as it is not today. Not much can be done about it tho so there's no need to argue the point.

x - The Cathars, a group of Catholic heretics, settled at Montsegur, France ?, in the Ariege region. They were besieged for more than a year and chose to burn at the stake rather than submit. Occitania was the ancient name for this region.

Contrary to what Rome tells about the Cathars, they were actually the non-Latin Christian Albigensians; associated with the Christian Celts of Ireland and the Nazarenes.

It's less harmful that way.

The observations confirm the Biblical account 100%, including the historic fact Jesus died on the cross as the Bible says.

Why do deny these observations?

The evidence of HISTORY & SCIENCE confirms the biblical account which says man will face judgment. Jesus said this very thing, as recorded. You denying this fact wont change it.

Fact: you had your day in court... again. Kansas, 2005.

And based on the facts... you lost again.

In the end, it's no to teaching intelligent design, or -- teach this version as well.

I hate you for rejecting the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I have just as much evidence for my God as you have for yours.

In fact, all the gods in history have the same amount of evidence as there is for mine -- the FSM!!!

So why do you call names? Have you figured it out yet?

Arrrrrrrrrrrr..... FSM loves you.

So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and He sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made.

After sending them out, the Lord God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden.

And He placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and others did not speak of "Jesus" when referring to God.

They believed in the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Who made these "observations?"

Do you have their writings?

Of course not. They exist only in your imagination.

That myth paints quite a picture in your mind HUH?

Of course reality is probably another issue entirely.

Whoever they were they were slaughtered as heretics by the Catholics ... the Catholics who were in turn heretics to the faithful Jews.

dude - apostles, prophets, evangelists, teachers and pastors are still alive and well on earth today and any of them worth their salt do not agree with the RCC:)
.... and they do not agree with each other either.

Tell me, how can thousands of Protestants keep a straight face, as they convince people the Holy Spirit is guiding them to truth, when none of them teach the same.
For example:
there are two evangelical mega churches in the twin cities that I know of. One Pastor says God doesn't know the future. He says Its playing out now and our choices will determine it. God will find out together with us, I guess.

Another preaches that God knows everything. He's outside of space and time and just because He knows the future, He still respects our free will and does not interfere with what we choose.

(The second one is in line with Catholicism. The first one is not.)

You guys are a doctrinal mess as each one chooses their own Christianity.

Are you indicating that the Catholics WERE the faithful ones to the god of the Jews?

Surely you aren't THAT ignorant.

Catholics were NOT faithful Jews. Not even close. The Catholics changed the dogmas of the Jews, and slaughered the Jews labeling all of them as the traitors.

Did you not notice that every group of Catholic protestors through all the centuries that disagreed with the popes were put to death for not agreeing with the popes on the meanings of dogma ... that they all gleaned from the same book?

The self-perceived holy members of the church always tried to dictate to the scientists what was and what was not "moral."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

Microbe Hunters by Paul de Kruif … published 1926

When Elie Metchnikoff invented Calomel ointment for the prevention of syphilis that “chased the disease out of armies and navies the world over,” the moralists, and there were many doctors among them … raised a clamor against these experiments of Metchnikoff.

“It will remove the penalty of immorality!” said they,“to spread abroad such an easy and a perfect means of prevention!” But Metchnikoff only answered:“It has been objected that the attempt to prevent the spread of disease is immoral. But since all means of moral prophylaxis have not prevented the great spread of syphilis and the contamination of innocents, the immoral thing is to restrain any available means we have of combating this plague.”
