Is Living Bread Literial
Ruben I am simply sharing my view, attempting to make my case concerning what I believe to be a symbolic reference or representation. If you can not receive what I am sharing, please dismiss it. Or if you can prove what I'm sharing to be incorrect through some biblical reference, please do. However, in my view, Jesus is not giving man His literal body to be consumed, that would be cannibalism, and probably what the people thought he was promoting. I don't attempt to inteprete scripture, I make an attempt to understand what is being conveyed, in reliance on what I believe to be the Father's inspiration. It is the spirit that quickens, the flesh profits nothing. Which is why he only spoke to the multitudes in parables. Mat 13:34

"No, I believe in his words, "for my Flesh is true food."
You are of course as entitled to your belief, as I am to mine.
Man does not live on bread alone, my guess it has the word bread!
My point was made by the verse itself.
I will ask again, where in the bread of life discourse John chapter 6 does it mention consuming his words?
I said "consuming the Father's word, which [Jesus] represented". He didn't need to mention it for me to know that Father's Word is "the bread of life," for His word is life, and is that which feeds, nourishes and sustains the believer.

Thank God For Gift Of Faith
"Have you thanked God for the gift of faith?" Everyday.

Should We Break The Law
The believer should never break the Father's law. The law of man would depend, as Jerry has stated, on whether that law conflicts with His law.

"Representing really,Jesus said the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world." Ruben it is my understanding that the giving of Jesus' flesh represented the setting forth of the mental disposition, and character traits He exhibited during His human experience, as an external example of an elevated life that has recognized and acknowledged the support, refreshment, nourishment, and guidance of the Father's direct Divine inspiration and influence. It was this life that He gave 'for', (over, beyond, and above), the life of the world. The reason He referred to Himself as the bread of life is because He set the standard meant to raise mans standard of living, and enrich his life.

" Are you trying to say : " This is hard who can understand this.v 60"
No, but apparently you are.
"Where does he says by mentally consuming his word?"
Where, other than the mind, can the Father's word be consumed?

Jesus said, "man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God." Jesus represented the living bread, (as the living word of God made tangible to man), representing both Spirit and life. It was His life that He gave for the life of man. And as He also said, "As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that 'eateth me' (by mentally consuming the Father's word, which He represented), even he shall live by me." For the bread of God is He which came down from heaven, It is He that literally gives life unto the world.

Good Works For Salvation
Trey, one doesn't "obtain" grace or salvation, one simply receives the gifts. Why listen to your friend's opposition to the scripture verses you quoted?

"The people living at the time it was written. Couldn't you figure that out?" What I could or could not figure out is irrelevant, it is for you to be clear. What is clear to me, is your attempt at condescension. Again, how would you know what the people of that time knew? Your assuming. I won't want even comment on the rest of your post, it's meaningless, and demonstrates your inability to continue an intelligent dialog, I'm done with this exchange.

"The Bible doesn't go into detailed... as they were already known by the immediate readers. Who are these "immediate readers" Cluny?
"However, a cursory glance into antiquity will prove what I have said."
How can you or I know of a certainty what happened in "antiquity" apart from the truth of what is revealed biblically? Am I to trust what man refers to as history? As a black man who has studied so called "American history" in an attempt to find the contributions of the ethnic group to which I belong, I am fully aware of how most books have been manipulated to reveal only what the so called majority willed to be generally revealed to the "cursory" inquirer.

Do Men Wait For Marriage
Elizabeth, to document why I believe as I do, as it is written, concerning marriage "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh." Eph 5:31 "What? know ye not that he which is joined to ("fasten firmly together," as in sexual intercourse Strongs G2853) an harlot is one body? for two, (that is joined together physically, implied) saith he, shall be one flesh." Eph 5:31

"Actually, the marriage took place when the marriage contract was made earlier, as was the custom of the time." BCV?

Do Men Wait For Marriage
BCV, please. Gen 24:67

Do Men Wait For Marriage
"Do men still wait for marriage before touching, kissing or having sex?"
Man has never waited for a marriage certificate before having sexual contact or intercourse, if, he had opportunity. What man failed to realize, did not understand, or simply ignored was that the very act, according to scripture, in the Father's eyes, constituted marriage. Unless, of course, there was a conscious, deliberate act of solicitation involving payment for sexual services. However, even the man that joins himself to a prostitute becomes one with her, again, according to scripture.
