I'm a llama!


« on: February 03, 2003, 12:28:01 AM »

Lately I have read a couple of things which at least imply that had not there been a fall Adam and Eve would never have had any sexual relations.  This seems to mean that there was not in God's intentions to create a human race, in the sense of anything beyond two people.  I found this a bit surprising.

Is this the teaching of the Church, that there was never meant to be any reproduction of humans at all?  I am not attacking anything, especially since I don't know the truth, but the things I have read have just sort of hinted around things without going directly into the heart of the matter.  For this reason it has nagged at me a bit just to know what the truth is.

Many thanks,

Patrick

God commands Adam and Eve before the Fall to be fruitful and multiply.  So I think God intended for there to be a human race, and unless there was an alternate way of reproduction, I'm sure God also intended the very nice method we use to this day.    Cheesy

The Mor has spoken. Let his word endure unto the ages of ages.

Please, James, tell us more about women!
