Romans 6: 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. To me there is only two sides all of us is born dead to God and alive in the world or in our new creation alive in Christ and dead to the world. We were all enmity to God, everyone one of us. We were all sinners dead to God. To say we are corpses to God I agree, but alive in the world not dead. The natural man is not dumb to what they see, they see themselves living and breathing in the world not a corpse. It starts off with a messenger who loves his enemies and befriends those who don't agree with them reach them where they are a natural man and show them there is a God by what God has made and when they acknowledge there is a God and then tell them of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. If they trust in Jesus and what He has done and learn from Jesus, they do not need to understand but trust in Jesus and it is Jesus who changes our lives and teaches us. If they don't trust in Jesus move on, dust your boots off, maybe with more witnesses preaching the same thing they may one day come to Christ. We should continue praying for them and the seed that was planted that Satan will not snatch the seed or that the individual will not let trials and tribulation choke it out. We should never forget that we were where they are. 2 Corinthians 5: 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[Or Christ, that person is a new creation.] The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin[Or be a sin offering] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Romans 4: 4 Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. What is your view of death in Adam?
