I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

comment Was Adam mortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?
Yes. Not that I believe for sure that that possibility was the case, but I am still forced to keep this option as possible until I am given the proof of its impossibility.

comment Was Adam mortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?
"But, the scripture is clear that Adam would only live forever (be immortal) if he partook from the tree of life" - How is that clear?! I mean, how is it clear that that also applies to Adam before the fall? Couldn't it have been so that Adam was immortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge and because of partaking of it he then lost his immortality and, thus, now needed the tree of life to become immortal again? This option may sound a bit overstretched, yet it is a valid option that needs to be rebutted somehow before we can say "it is clear".

comment In what sense did Judas betray Jesus?
@Caleb - Please, answer my last question here. It is a matter that has long been perplexing me as regard to the "right way" of asking questions here, and I still haven't gotten any clear explanation as to how to go about such cases as this one.

Apart from that, it's a very good answer. Thank you.

I don't quite understand why such uncertainty about what the torture is. Perhaps, I wasn't clear enough in my question, but I meant inflicting ANY KIND of physical pain, and not necessarily resulting in a death. Therefore, all kinds of physical-pain-inflicting punishments mentioned in your answer are to be considered "in" in the view of this question - regardless of how they were being viewed in their times. Hence, I like your WHO definition. So, as for the "torture", we take our modern definition, and as for "heresy", we take take the definition of those who called it "heresy", as you said.
