Do you think Paul again is making a distinction between The WOMAN= Church = Eve to be in subject to the SPIRIT\Man \Christ= TEACHING A spiritual PRINCIPLE THROUGH The natural\Physical being man and WOMAN-
Yes I do. He says he's speaking in mysteries, and of Christ and the church, when he speaks of husband and wife. But, I also think he's making a point about the distinction between Adam and Eve themselves that has an independent meaning when he says one was not deceived, the other was deceived and therefore in the transgression [doesn't have to have anything to do with man and woman.].
Example, if the police order me not to go into a burning building, and I rush in anyway to save a life, am I breaking the law? Love covers a multitude of sins.
Marys name means rebellion Right? she too is a FIGURE of the WOMAN known as OLD JERUSALEM, While NEW Jerusalem is the ""MOTHER"of us ALL
I didn't know that. That's very cool.
That has nothing to do with the fact that Adam sinned.
Wages of sin is death. Adam died so he has sinned
Ok. Let's say that Adam sinned. Now what? We have thousands of years between Adam and Moses, with no law at all. Not even the command that Adam was given because they do not have access to the garden. So--how do you break the law if there is NO law?
Paul is speaking like a lawyer when he talks about death reigning even though sin is not imputed. After Adam, it doesn't matter what you do, good or bad [by what measure?] you are still going to die. During this time, we have two types of people--those who are walking with God, calling on the Lord, and those who aren't--but all die [except for Enoch maybe].
I just think it's interesting, from a legal standpoint. If there is no law, how do I argue my client is innocent? How do I get him out of jail? How do I save his life? There is no way. Satan loves a police state where people can just disappear and be murdered at a whim.
I think there is a reason why God establishes the law before he saves them, because, like you said, now he can do things under the law to save them which no one can argue against.
I'm not putting this very well, but maybe you can see what I'm trying to say lol. If the New Jerusalem is the mother of us all, we are born into freedom, we are free, --and then, as Paul says, the law comes and we die. But, before the law was given, Death reigned.
It's more complicated than this but I'm trying to answer the question--How does Jesus save mankind? First answer is he dies in our place under the law.
