The Garden of Eden is explained in the Bible as being on earth. The Tree of Life was guarded by a Cheribum and a flaming sword so that Adam and Eve couldn't eat from the tree. The notes in my study Bible said that this could mean that we would one day be able to eat from the Tree of Life since God protected it and didn't uproot it. Here's my question: If the Tree of Life was guarded and preserved, and it was here on earth......wouldn't it still be here???? Thanks!
