Also note that not all fruits have seed in them.
Don P: You're right. But consider this. How do plants that have no seed
pollinate? Do you not consider this a seed? Is your seed to your wife not a
seed? I guess God meant something else when it comes to your children.
Perhaps the woman has to sit on a fruit, with seeds, for a while. Literal,
is ok, but understand that in language there are differences. Fag in America
is a homosexual, but in England it is a cigarette. Seed may not be what we
consider it today because of connotations. This is the error of many. When
one says that the Bible should be taken literal, this also means in context
and considering language and culture. But, do not dismiss everything as
culture and language either. Too many, not necessarily you, go one way or
the other, while God wants us to go down the middle. Funny, it's almost like
politics. Some are right and some are left, but the wise one can see through
the mess and ends up even.
