“ Now see the truth of my words, that I told thee thou hadst no sense at all to understand thy writings; for if thou hadst understood this thou wouldest not put in print that thou shouldest never be married. But to thy own weak judge ment I left thee, till my appointed time was, come. This discernment was neither in thee, nor in the believers. But here I have ordered thee to bring forward to the world the way I shall fulfil my Gospel; and let them that reprove, answer how they died in Adam, and how they will be made alive in ME, any other way, than I have pointed out to thee? “Now come to the words of Paul.”

There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, the first inan Adam was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. How beit; that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterwards that which is spiritual.”
