What was the purpose for the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden IF man had not of fallen?


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.

    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?

    Edwin- Unless I'm mistaken I think you are referring to the Tree of Knowledge (of good and evil).
