Regarding the question about using the rationale that if it’s to save the life of the mother, then why not abort the child? and it’s comparison to a police officer killing someone intent on killing children. There is no comparison. The rationale doesn’t apply to both cases.
Regarding the police officer, he is killing a criminal intent on murdering children. Regarding aborting a child to save the mother, the child is not a criminal, and also is not intent on murdering the mother. The comparison falls apart.
Your answer: “No, because the Bible defines sin as ‘spiritual adultery’ many times [quote, quote, quote, etc].”
The Question: “Since Paul says he betrothed the Congregation in Corinth to one Husband, and wants to present that Congregation as (spiritually speaking) a ‘chaste virgin’, and that, along those lines, there could be a ‘problem’ if the Congregation is ‘deceived and led astray from devotion to Messiah’ by the devil, it seems Paul is identifying ‘idolatry’ (which is all ‘sin’) as ‘spiritual adultery’–and since he compares this spiritual reality to the physical reality of Eve’s having been led astray, was Paul implying he believed the serpent wanted to have physical relations with Eve (as in the Jewish tradition)?”
Are you sure you addressed the question?
Paul’s metaphor over here is a litte confusing because “Christ” can fill the role of both “the truth” (i.e., “do not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or you will die”) and “the husband”. And that’s just the beginning–when you start thinking about the metaphor it starts getting more and more complicated. LOL
