Dead in Adam or Alive in Christ?
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 (KJB) For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
You cannot have it both ways; a person is either dead in Adam or alive in Christ. God divides humanity as only spiritually saved or as having an eternally lost heart condition. Each soul is either naturally bent towards hell or aligned with God in sweet eternal fellowship. One leads to perpetual torment, while the other state leads to lasting peace.
Death was ushered into this world by satan the moment Eve followed the trap of satan, believing his errant counsel about the nature of sin and God. Adam chose to follow Eve in spiritual death setting in motion Jesus Christ’s future spiritual work upon Calvary.
What about you- are you dead in sin and living apart from God or alive forever inside a personal spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ?
The first Adam brought death and separation from God while the second Adam, Jesus Christ, ushered in fellowship with God and abundant life forever. You too can live forever with God.
