Let assume for the moment that man had not fallen in sin in the garden of Eden, then what would have been the purpose for the Tree of Life? Would man had lived forever even if they had not sinned and without eating from the Tree of Life? If so, then what was the purpose for the Tree of Life in that time?

Titen- I'll stick with the bible version and to be honest I do not know what is meant by "motif". I thank you for your answer.
PandN- I did not realize the Book of Proverbs had so many verses relating directly to the Tree of Life. I exspected it in Genesis and Revelation but not so much in Proverbs. I learned something new. Thank you for this information. Blessings
William- There is both literal and spiritual aspect to the bible. And understanding of it will be realed through the Holy Spirit whom can reveal what part is literal and which part is spiritual. I don't trust man to give understanding of His word.
William - If you read my new Hub I wrote a day or two ago you will see what the main focus of the bible is about. It's titled; "His Kingdom."
David- Thank you for your answer
Not to start a theological debate but in what way is God's curse on all humanity in Genesis lucky when he could have undid the entire thing and started over?
TX Well the alternative was He could have let them eat of the tree of life
celafoe- great answer. And many thanks.
Edwin- Unless I'm mistaken I think you are referring to the Tree of Knowledge (of good and evil).
well whats the diff ?
Edwin- I believe Genesis 3:22 will give you the perfect answer to your question. Have a good day.
et- the difference is one contains all the things God did not want us to know/experience and the other eternal life. exact opposites.
God;s desire was for us to have a pleasant quiet life with Him not the termoil we live in today.
