    Linking to loons does not help you either.

    A proper understanding of the Bible is not possible if one insists that the parts that are metaphorical are literal.

    The angel guarded Eden so that Adam and Eve would not partake of the tree of life in their sinful state. Questions about the Tree of Life

    Ooh!! Quick Bible question for you. He mentions that the "Law of God" was in the Ark of the Covenant. What Laws were those? Please quote them for me.

    Once again, we know that did not happen.

    Are you trying to claim that your God does not exist?

    God did not want Adam and Eve to walk away from Him even more. God does not want to be separated from His creation. God desires a relationship with his creation like a parent wants to know their kids. Questions about the Tree of Life

    Once again, that part of the Bible never happened. It also portrays God as being weak, immoral and incompetent. Why do you believe that of your God?

    The Ten Commandments were in the Ark of the Covenant. Was the Book of the Law (Torah) ever kept inside the Ark of the Covenant?

    I don’t practice a belief that humanity is inherently evil. No matter what “the Bible says.”

    That doesn't mean that sin didn't separate humanity from God in the Garden of Eden.

    I'm not a follower of Augustine, I believe he taught lies mixed with truth, I believe what the Bible teaches about original sin. Original Sin: How Original Is It? Romans 5:12

    A mythic tale, not a historic event. Nothing separates humanity from God. That’s not what the myth is about.

    The Bible doesn’t teach original sin.

    False teachings that we don't have a sin nature are based on liberal interpretations of original sin. Original Sin: How Original Is It? Romans 5:12

    Jesus was liberal. Was he “false?” Augustine first taught about our “sin nature.” Pelagius and others disagreed with him. God did not condemn us with a nature that is separate from God. God graced us with a nature that is inherently of God. We condemn ourselves.

    The fall had consequences on creation. Genesis 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

    Jesus was not a communist. To understand the Bible you have to read the full context of the verses. The more you read the Bible, you notice things that you didn't notice before. Does the Bible support Communism? | GotQuestions.org

    Myth. Not literalism. Of course our sin has consequences. Doesn’t everything?

    Jesus wasn't a liberal. Liberal means there's no punishment, no responsibility, no boundaries, whatever is convenient for you. Liberalism of today is different from FDR type liberalism.
