From the DR
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat: and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die.
4 And the serpent said to the woman: *No, you shall not die the death.
A JW asked me how the Catholic Church understands the lie that was told to Eve.
Who lied Satan or God?
If there is a part of us that lives after death than God lied?
God said that Eve would die. Body and soul?
Satan told Eve that she would not die but God told her she would die.
I think what my friend is asking is that God said that Eve would die in her entirety and not separating her body from her immortal soul.
Did God mean that Adam and Eve would die body and soul?
In the NT we are promised either eternal life or eternal death. My JW friend does not believe in a spiritual soul that meets Jesus/God at the particular judgement at our death.
At this point in time did God make provisions for their immortal soul?
Did Adam and Eve have and immortal soul?
