Commentary On Genesis 1 - 3: Food And Sin

I was searching for the first mentioning of death and poverty in the Bible, and I found myself wandering into Genesis 2 & 3. An interesting thing that caught my attention was the fact that a couple of things were food related: God cursed the soil and the food aspect of our lives; and our first sin was eating. Is it possible that there is symbollism in eating? Please read the rest of my post and then give feedback.

Obeying The Bible Less?

I'm so amazed. Even in this day and age, there are people, who identify themselves as Christians, and kind of get paid to, but they seem to want to put off that identification.

Every time enemies encourage us to obey the Bible less, the members of the community search inward for comfortable opportunities to obey less.

The end. Thank you for reading!

"Church" As Defined In The Bible

I just realized for the first time that the word church was used before Christ died on the cross. For those of you, who don't get the significance of this: this means that the word, church, as used in the Bible, also included Old Testament believers. Before Christ died, everybody lived under the Old Testament laws. After he died, we lived under New Testament laws. The word, church however, stayed the same.

This is significant for studying theology of the end times, and theology of the church.

It makes sense, too, because not all of Israel believed, yet there was a community of believers. These small communities became more visible during the exile, because they created synagogues.
