And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. [Gen 3:22-23 NIV] This sounds as if they weren't immortal since they had not eaten from the tree of life yet. But if they did not have eternal life before the fall then they would have died one day even without the fall. Or how does this work? There was the tree of knowledge and the tree of life. If they had not yet eaten from the tree of life in order to live forever then this actually means that they didn't have eternal life even before the fall. But I thought that before the fall they were immortal.
