If it is, all have not sinned, for all have not or will not die. Follow, or correct, the following attempt at logic. If sin is a universal principle, and all have sinned, ( and ‘all’ means without exception) then the penalty for sin would be passed to all. (with ‘all’ meaning without exception) All do not see physical death, therefore either all have not sinned or physical death cannot be the punishment for sin. At some point in time in our discussions, if we are to arrive at any meaningful ideas surrounding the connection between physical death and sin, we are going to have to factor in the distinction between a ‘consequence of ’ and ‘the penalty for’ sin.
