The Peach and the Coconut - Chapter Two

Ben Oliver did an excellent job yesterday talking on the centrality of Christ to our community - if you missed or want to listen to it again you can find it to it here.

Here's the link to the chapter two of The Peach and the Coconut which goes with this talk. I'll be honest that this chapter is much less finished than the introduction and chapter one I posted last week (thanks by the way for all the comments and stories on those). I therefore need people to do some hard work on making this chapter the finished article. In particular the end of the chapter is weak where I talk about what it costs to follow Jesus, and much of the rest of it could be improved and sharpened. Why not have a go at rewriting a section and submitting your improved version. As last week either add comments to the blog or send them to this email address.

Hope to catch you at the prayer meetings this week,

Simon.

Adam and eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowlege of good and evil at the fall. They could eat from the tree of life until the fall.

I think they could have done, but had no need as they were going to live forever at that point.
If they had eaten from it and the Fall had still occurred, mankind would have lived forever in sin.
But get this, Jesus would have never been able to die on the cross for our sins if death had been banished by eating from the tree of life.
That's my view on it anyway. Good job God drove them out of Eden.
