[47] The Fall and the Fix of Adam and Eve

Adam, before he sinned, had an indefinitely lasting human body, and he had judicial second life (he was born again angelically). This means that he had an associated angel in heaven with his name on it. He was born again after he was born if you like.  

7 And Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul (Genesis 2).

The breath of life was not from the ground, it was from the heaven. God blew into two nostrils, two vessels for the breathy of life, two vessels for your life. The vessel of dust, the human body, and the vessel of spirit, the angel. Adam was born again although not actually when he was born, but when he reached 30 years old (we deduce this from his correspondence with the life of Jesus - U41). It took 30 years for God to finish blowing into his nostrils! In fact in all humans, our two nostrils and our two lungs are declaring the two vehicles for the spirit of life which we can possess. 

In other words he was not under a first death sentence (the death of the human body) or a second death sentence (the death of the angelic body). Every one who has judicial second life is an angelic son of God. Adam had one soul at his birth, the indefinitely lasting human soul. Then aged 30 he was born again angelically, gaining a second soul which was his angelic soul. So in the majestic wisdom of God, the greatest of all the teachers, Adam looked as though he was inferior to the angels, since his human soul was inferior to any angelic soul, but since he also possessed an invisible angelic soul as well, he was actually superior at creation to Michael, Gabriel and Satan. For these three were created with Angelic souls only, whereas Adam was created with both Angelic and indefinite human souls. Now there was the root of Satan's jealousy.

Had Adam procreated before he sinned, then his children would likewise have had indefinitely lasting non ageing human bodies and judicial second life (associated angelic bodies). This does not defy God's principle that: Since we have free will, we have to demonstrate some loyalty and gratitude before he grants us everlasting life... 

16 Now, look! a certain one came up to him and said: Teacher, what good must I do in order to get everlasting life?
17 He said to him: Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is that is good. If, though, you want to enter into life, observe the commandments continually (Matthew 19).

Because Adam died and any one of his sons could likewise have died since Adam and his hypothetical edenic sons had, and would have had, indefinitely lasting life, not everlasting life. In fact the judicial condition of man in the Garden of Eden is the judicial condition of man on the earth during the 1,000 year Kingdom of God.  

God's Justice and Michael's Ransoms are Soul for Soul

The scriptures describe Michael's or anybody else's ransom and God's justice as follows:

5 For one God, one also [a] mediator of God and of men, [a] man, [a] Christ, Jesus.
6 The one having given himself [as a] corresponding ransom over all ones (1 Timothy 2 - Literal translation)

The literal meaning of this wonderful piece of scriptural ambiguity is. 

5 For one God [there is], one [God] [who is] also a mediator of Jehovah and of men, [a] man, [a] Christ, Jesus.
6 The one having given himself [his everlasting angelic body] [as a] corresponding ransom over all ones [in the ARC] (1 Timothy 2 - Literal translation)

22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive (1 Corinthians 15).

The ransom was simple, it was soul for soul as stipulated in the Law of Moses in the case of damages:

22 And in case men should struggle with each other and they really hurt a pregnant woman and her children do come out but no fatal accident occurs, he is to have damages imposed upon him without fail according to what the owner of the woman may lay upon him; and he must give it through the justices.
23 But if a fatal accident should occur, then you must give soul for soul
eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 
branding for branding, wound for wound, blow for blow (Exodus 21).

17 And in case a man strikes any soul of mankind fatally, he should be put to death without fail.
18 And the fatal striker of the soul of a domestic animal should make compensation for it, soul for soul.
19 And in case a man should cause a defect in his associate, then just as he has done, so it should be done to him.
20 Fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; the same sort of defect he may cause in the man, that is what should be caused in him.
21 And the fatal striker of a beast should make compensation for it, but the fatal striker of a man should be put to death (Leviticus 24).

Now our God cannot lie, and neither should his sons. He takes his sons at their word. So once Jesus (who was the angel Michael after his baptism by John - see Intro16) had given his word, then God treated him as if he had already ransomed Adam. This meant that the Fatherhood rights that Adam had before he sinned now belonged to Michael, who was bound by agreement to pay for them with his everlasting angelic soul and his human soul.

The cunning of Satan and the fall of Adam and Eve

1 Now the serpent [Satan having come down in human form and seducing Eve using the tactics of a snake] proved to be the most crafty/cunning of all the wild beasts of the field [he became the most cunning of the angels who reject outright God's authority] that Jehovah God had made. So it began to say to the woman [Eve]: Is it really so that God said you must not eat from every tree of the garden?
2 At this the woman said to the serpent: Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat.
3 But as for [eating] of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You must not eat from it, no, you must not touch it that you do not die.'
4 At this the serpent said to the woman: You [plural] positively will not die.
5 For God knows that in the very day of your eating from it your eyes are bound to be opened and you are bound to be like God, knowing good and bad.
6 Consequently the woman saw that the tree was good for food [the literal tree and tasty literal food upon it] and that it was something to be longed for to the eyes [the tree and its fruit were good looking], yes, the tree was desirable to gain wisdom [literally eating would give her wisdom] [lykXh]. So she began taking of its fruit and eating it. Afterward she gave some also to her husband when with her and he began eating it.
7 Then the eyes of both of them became opened [they understood the game that Satan had played with them and they woke up sexually too] and they began to realize that they were naked [both physically, since they had discovered the power of the lower regions and spiritually since they began to appreciate their moral naivety]. Hence they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves (Genesis 3).

43 Why is it you do not know what I am speaking? Because you cannot listen to my word.
44 you are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a manslayer [he murdered Eve and conspired with her to murder Adam. So he was a manslayer] when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him [although he was in the truth until he turned to the lie]. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie] (John 8).

Now the trees in the garden were real trees and Eve was a real woman. But the snake was plainly not a real snake because real snakes cannot talk or have sex with human women. The first naive solution to this problem is to say that the snake was used as a ventriloquists dummy by Satan. But the Gnostic writing below shows that Satan committed adultery with Eve, something that he could not have achieved as a snake. Furthermore Eve declaring that she had produced Cain with Jehovah and not with Adam, and Cain not being Adam's seed but Abel being such confirms that Cain was a physical son of Satan, begotten by Satan and Eve.

1 And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with Jehovah. (Genesis 4 ASV)
1 Now Adam had intercourse with Eve his wife and she became pregnant. In time she gave birth to Cain and said: I have produced a man with the aid of Jehovah. (Genesis 4 NWT)
1 And the man knew Eve his wife, and she conceiveth and beareth Cain, and saith, 'I have gotten a man by Jehovah;' (Genesis 4 YLT)

The words 'the aid of' are added in the NWT as the ASV correctly indicates. The YLT even more correctly just omits them. Satan was the mediator of the first holy spirit covenant. He was the head of God's first wife. He therefore was God's flesh. So he firstly committed adultery with Eve (being married directly to Jehovah). He secondly committed bestiality with Eve, since she was a lower life form than him. Then he further caused God's flesh to commit incest and adultery. So he not only defiled God's flesh, but also broke pretty much every rule in the yet to be written book of Moses by that one act. So actually Eve did create a man with Jehovah's flesh in the form of Satan.

12 not like Cain, who originated with the wicked one and slaughtered his brother. And for the sake of what did he slaughter him? Because his own works were wicked, but those of his brother [were] righteous. (1 John 3 NWT)
12 not according as Cain out of [ek] the wicked (one) he was and he slaughtered the brother of him; and thanks of what slaughtered he him? Because the works of him wicked was, the (ones) but of the brother of him righteous (ones). (1 John 3 KIT).

Satan had sex with Eve, then killed her (constructively) by persuading her to eat the fruit. In this way he hoped to prevent her having any offspring with Adam. Cain was non adamic and not under any death penalty until he killed Abel. This of course was the great attraction to Satan. He was not interested in giving God any more children, he wanted children of his own, to whom he could be God. 

Here is some extra information from the Gospel of Philip (a Gnostic text)...

He who has been created is beautiful [any angelic birth, any child born to judicially living parents], but you would <?> find his sons [begotten sons, such as the Nephilim, produced not angelically but by sexual reproduction] noble creations. If he were not created, but begotten [by sexual reproduction], you would find that his seed was noble [Abraham was begotten and his seed is noble]. But now he was created (and) he begot [Satan was created angelically and he had sex with Eve. He did what the demons later did with human women. Eve could only beget without divine consent after she sinned, since begetting by sexual reproduction is the preserve of the dead. But Satan had the authority as head of the first Holy Spirit to have a child with Eve before she sinned which meant that the child would be alive. So he had a living child with Eve and then and he killed her human soul, which is murder. Eve did also lose her angelic soul and her human soul, so that she died, because even though she was deceived, she broke God's law and therefore came under the penalty for that breach. Adultery preceded murder. God allows people to have children without his consent only if these children are dead. So Satan slept with her and made her pregnant then he persuaded her to sin so as to lose her non ageing human soul. Then he conspired with her to murder Adam. Although Adam was not actually deceived and chose to die for his wife, in an act of loving suicide. He lost his human soul and his angelic soul by choice (since he was not deceived). Eve lost both her angelic and human souls by deception and so was murdered]. What nobility is this? First, adultery came into being, afterward murder [Satan first seduced Eve and committed adultery with her not because she was married to or engaged to Adam, but because he was married to Jehovah as the head of the first Holy Spirit! He led Jehovah into adultery! He then murdered the girl]. And he [Cain] was begotten in adultery, for he was the child of the Serpent [Satan came down in human form to seduce Eve, and Cain was carried and delivered by Eve]. So he became a murderer/manslayer, just like his father, and he killed his brother [Abel]. Indeed, every act of sexual intercourse which has occurred between those unlike one another is 'adultery'/bestiality [Satan mating with Eve was NOT cross species adultery. because Satan had an indefinitely living angelic and an indefinitely living human body and so did Eve. But it was adultery because Satan was the head of the 1st Holy Spirit which was married to God. Satan was the head of God's first wife. He had authority to consent to angelic procreation. Cain was created by angelic procreation. Abel was created by sexual reproduction which is the preserve of the dead]  (Gospel of Philip)

Angels are procreated by divine consent. Humans are begotten by mutual consent and by sexual reproduction. Satan seduced Eve for Cain. The demons seduced any other women they fancied for the Nephilim. Cain and the Nephilim were all murderers.

Now male female marriage is an institution for the dead. So Adam and Eve were not married in the garden, and actually they could not have reproduced sexually in the garden. They could only have created a child on God's behalf, since both were living. So Satan did not sin against Adam in adultery, but he did sin against the first holy spirit covenant which he mediated. So he was unfaithful as God's wife. That was his adultery. This actually destroyed the first holy spirit covenant and God lost his first wife as so many humans experience today.

20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve [after the conception of Cain]; because she was the mother of all living [all judicially life being Cain - everyone else was dead]. (Genesis 3 KJV)
20 And the man called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. (Genesis 3 ASV)
20 And the man called the name of his wife, Eve; because she became the mother of all living. (Genesis 3 GLT)
20 After this Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she had to become [mistranslation] the mother of everyone living [mistranslation]. (Genesis 3 NWT)

0 And the man called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all life [singular] [all life being Cain - everyone else was dead]. . (Genesis 3 LWT)

Eve has nothing to do with the procreation of the living saints, who are the children of the 2nd or 3rd Holy Spirit. Even did become the mother of all begotten human life after Adam and all the pre-adamics had died out. But Eve also became, through her children after Cain, the mother of all death, for David said:

5 Look! With error I was brought forth with birth pains, And in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalms 51 NWT).

Not because to conceive is a sin but because the sperm and the egg have adamic death encoded in their DNA. So Satan began as an adulterer and as a manslayer of Eve. Both Adam and Eve did die on the literal day of their eating. But they were also passed over and then resurrected due to the offer of an angelic and a human Ransom by Jesus.

Jesus (the angel Michael) agreed to ransom Adam angelically through the ARC, the Angelic Ransom Covenant, the Alpha Covenant - see Intro28. But not with immediate effect for the ARC gives everlasting angelic life and Adam could not be immediately given that without proving himself under test. Jesus also agreed to ransom Adam humanly though the LRC, the Love Ransom Covenant, the OMC, the Omega Covenant - see U218

13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 22 NWT)

But again this would give Adam a non ageing (non adamic) Yeshuaian body, the body of Immanuel (the non adamic son of Mary and Joseph and God) and Jesus. So Adam could not be given that body immediately either. He would have to prove himself under test in order to be given that ransom. 

Incidentally Michael did not have a human body when he agreed to ransom Adam angelically. So God gave him the Yeshuaian body for his ministry and for the ransom of the LRC (OMC). 

Every sealing salvation covenant requires a permanent validation sacrifice of the body which is given to the mediator for those sealed.
Every testing salvation covenant requires a temporary validation sacrifice of the body which is given to the mediator for those under test.

But once Jesus has permanently given up his human and his angelic body, then he has nowhere to go other than into a divine body. So he must have known this was his mission, his test, his destiny, when he agreed the ARC and the LRC with God.

But the writer did wonder why God did not sometimes just make such a body and give it to the sacrificer. Well that is what he did with Jesus' human body.

6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men;
8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient [even] unto death, yea, the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name [which name is Jehovah, the family surname of every God]; (Philippians 2 ASV)

So God had to arrange for Adam to be given a human body in which to take the test of the LRC and an angelic body to enable him to take the test of the ARC - since the Yeshuaian human and Michaelic angelic bodies were only available to him subject to testing. That body was the 960 year max lifespan ageing adamic body that lasted Adam for 930 years. 

5 So all the days of Adam that he lived amounted to 930 years and he died. (Genesis 5 NWT)

This body was actually a gift from God. Just as Immanuel's/Jesus' human body was a gift from God. So that is how Adam was initially fixed and how he was passed over through death on that day he sinned. He did lose his angelic soul on that day and he lost his non ageing body (non adamic body we say). So actually he lost both his two souls and he died on 3993Nisan14. But he was passed over and resurrected into his adamic body by gene zap which was completed on the 3rd day, 3993Nisan16. Then, later, presumably from the Sethian Angelic Covenant, (SAC) he we born again for ARC testing - see Intro28.

Adam fell asleep in his non adamic body in the evening of 3993Nisan14 (before sunset) and woke up in a different body, actually a transadamic body on 3993Nisan15 and then fell asleep in his transadamic body in the evening of 3993Nisan15/16 and woke up in his 960 year max lifespan adamic body on 3993Nisan16. If you wake up in a different body to the one you went to sleep in then you died (you went through the gates of Hades). So Adam died to his original body and was resurrected into his adamic body.

So Adam absolutely died on 3993Nisan14 angelically and on 3993Nisan14 humanly. 

Eve likewise lost her angelic body on 3993Nisan14 having committed the same offence as Adam, albeit through Satan's deception.

14 Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived and came to be in transgression (1 Timothy 2).

Now God gives covenant salvation bodies to the mediator of the covenant, normally by virtue of a validation sacrifice from someone else. In the case of Adam, he sacrificed himself and was then given his adamic body. Eve was not given her own adamic body because women do not mediate covenants. They mediate genetic procreation not covenant procreation. So Eve also lost her non aging human body on 3993Nisan14 and needed a replacement that day. She had to get that replacement from Adam. She could not get it by joining him in a salvation covenant because Adam was not permitted to act as a priest until the 50th month after his sin - see U317 and see U114 and see U108.

So the only way she could get this adamic body from Adam was by agreeing to marry him. She must have made that agreement on 3993Nisan14. So that by the end of that day both Adam and Eve had been passed over. 3993Nisan14 was the original Passover of man. So both did actually die both angelically and humanly on 3993Nisan14. They both lost their angels that day and they both got an adamic gene zap that day, which led them both to a rather technical human death to their original ageless bodies. So Adam saved Eve - which is actually why he sinned in the first place. Just as Jesus saved his bride, his 1NC church... 

23 because a husband is head of his wife as the Christ also is head of the congregation, he being a saviour of [this] body (Ephesians 5 NWT).

For God said:

16 And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction.
17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it dying/to die, you will die. (Genesis 2 NWT)

And Eve recited this command with an extra bit added presumably by Adam saying to Satan...

1 Now the serpent proved to be the most craft/cunning of all the wild beasts of the field that Jehovah God had made. So it began to say to the woman: Is it really so that God said ye must not eat from every tree of the garden?
2 At this the woman said to the serpent: Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat.
3 But as for [eating] of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You must not eat from it, no, ye must not touch it that ye do not die.'
4 At this the serpent said to the woman: To die, ye will not die.
5 For God knows that in the very day of your eating from it your eyes are bound to be opened and you are bound to be like God, knowing good and bad. (Genesis 3 NWT)

This was a lie. Both Adam and Eve died on 3993Nisan14. However when their human bodies died of old age, Adam certainly did not die because he had an everlasting angelic body from Jesus who ransomed him. He could not enter into the body because Jesus had yet to perform the ransom. But like David and all the saints who died before Jesus, he was resurrected into Eden2 in his Yeshuaian body under the LRC. Eve may well have joined him there if she had shown faith under test. Adam being alive as a human on Eden2 does not mean that all his sons immediately become alive as humans. For they are still adamic until they are resurrected. And Abraham is alive on Eden2 but most of his sons are asleep in the first death, in Hades..

Eve herself was only under the law of do not eat from the tree. So she was not guilty of adultery. Her law did not say do not sleep with angels in humans acting like snakes! And in any event she had no idea what adultery was since marriage had not yet ever occurred since no human had yet died judicially. So she was absolutely nowhere with this stuff, and must have been well surprised when she discovered that sex led to pregnancy, something that was not the case with pre-adamics and will not be the case with post adamics either.

So Adam died in both of his bodies as a result of his sin, as did Eve, so since Satan told Eve that both of them would positively not die, he lied in respect of both of them. 

44 you are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]. (John 8 NWT).

So Satan started as an adulterer with Eve. Then he lied. Then he became a manslayer of Eve (a womanslayer in fact). Then he conspired with Eve to kill Adam. But Adam was not deceived and actually chose to commit suicide out of his love for Eve. 

How long is a day?

However there is a further meaning to Genesis 2:16-17.

16 And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction.
17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it dying/to die, you will die. (Genesis 2 NWT)

The 'day' of Adam's eating from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Bad runs from 3993Nisan14 to 2024Shebat14, the absolute end of Adam and Cain and adamic death, since the sons of Gehenna last until that day. So during that 6016 year 10 month 'day', Adam dies in the sense that his sons die from adamic death. Adamic death lasts for 6016 years 10 months.

Verse 17 is quite obviously a prophecy that Adam will eat from it and will die. They both ate from this tree and they both died as humans and as angels, i.e. they lost both their vehicles and therefore truly died, on that day of 3993Nisan14, the day that they ate the fruit. But their sons, their descendant, the genetic house of Adam, continued to die thereafter and is still dying today from ageing, which brings adamic death. Now the world was not created in 6 literal days. It was created as 6 very large 'equal' (modulo six changes in the speed of light - see U234) time periods ‘days’ or 'epochs'. Like Queen Victoria’s ‘day’. A great scriptural example of the Holy Spirit using the word 'day to mean more than one day is the inauguration of the altar of the tabernacle in Numbers7...

11 So Jehovah said to Moses: One chieftain on one day and another chieftain on another day is the way they will present their offering for the inauguration of the altar.
12 Now the one presenting his offering on the first day proved to be Nahshon the son of Amminadab of the tribe of Judah.
18 On the second day Nethanel the son of Zuar, the chieftain of Issachar, made a presentation.
24 On the 3rd day there was the chieftain for the sons of Zebulun, Eliab the son of Helon.
30 On the 4th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Reuben, Elizur the son of Shedeur.
36 On the 5th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
42 On the 6th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Gad, Eliasaph the son of Deuel.
48 On the 7th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Ephraim, Elishama the son of Ammihud.
54 On the 8th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Manasseh, Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.
60 On the 9th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Benjamin, Abidan the son of Gideoni.
66 On the 10th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Dan, Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.
72 On the 11th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Asher, Pagiel the son of Ochran.
78 On the 12th day there was the chieftain for the sons of Naphtali, Ahira the son of Enan.
84 This was the inauguration offering of the altar on the day of its being anointed, on the part of the chieftains of Israel: 12 silver dishes, 12 silver bowls, 12 gold cups; (Numbers 7 NWT)

So the word day in verse 84 is in fact 12 literal days long. Whereas each creative day (evening and morning) was actually 26,060.606060 years long as measured in years where the speed of light takes the value that it does today, 300,000,000 metres per second) - see the Monrose Hypothesis in U234. So the ‘day’ that 'Adam' who stands for 'Adam and his progeny' eat from this tree is the entire period during which humans die. This period has an end, as any time period does, hence the famous scripture:

4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away (Revelation 21).

Whilst we take in this knowledge of Good and Bad, i.e. whilst we learn at school right from wrong, we die dying, i.e. we age and die (or in Hebrew idiom as regards dying, we die). But in the next system, the 1,000 year kingdom of God, after Armageddon and after the final lava flood, we, Adam’s sons, do not die dying. We do not age and only those who commit life abusing sins die. So the ‘day’ referred to in Genesis 2:17, is this system from Adam’s sin until we stop dying on 2024Shebat14, the 1st death Passover, the end of entry into the 1st death, the absolute end of Adam.. 

When Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden we read:

22 And Jehovah God went on to say: Here the man has become like one of us in knowing good and bad, and now in order that he may not put his hand out and actually take [fruit] also from the tree of life [act as a priest conferring salvation upon his congregation] and eat and live to time indefinite...
23 With that Jehovah God put him out of the garden of Eden to cultivate the ground from which he had been taken (Genesis 3).

Adam was thrown out in order that he could not eat from the tree of life, although that prohibition only last for 50 months, until the first monthly Jubilee release - see U317. The tree of knowledge is conspicuously absent from God's words. So we deduce that he (him and his progeny) were still able to eat from that tree outside the garden. Yet the garden and the tree of life were not destroyed, Adam was merely evicted. So there will be a time when we humans will return both to the tree and the garden

The ground from which he had been taken in symbolic terms is pre-adamic man! see [1].

So Adam had a death penalty pronounced on him, but God gave him a stay of execution long enough for his to procreate and create what is now the entire human race, through Noah. Although Adam was not the only human around at his creation, for Homo Sapiens had been around for a long time before Adam turned up, see - Millions of years of human fossils reconciled with Genesis at last!

So we, his sons, live today only because of this stay of execution on Adam’s death sentence. Now Adam can only pass on to his children the life that he himself has. This life is subject to a death sentence. So we all have the same life that he had, life subject to a death sentence, life subject to Adam's death sentence in fact. So we are all under the very same death sentence. Paul explains:

12 That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, so also death spread to all men because they had all sinned. For until the Law, sin was in the world, but sin is not charged against anyone when there is no law  (Romans 5).

This scripture is saying that death spread to all men through one man, Adam. This death is not due to the personal sins of each man, because we are told that sin is not charged where there is no law, and most men are not, or have not been, under any law (from God). So the sin that we all carry is the unpaid sin of Adam. It is this which is the cause of our death. The death of course is physically as a result of our ageing bodies which fall apart today after a maximum of 120 years (a limit that came into force during the life of Moses who lived 120 years to the day - see I15). 

Please realise that we age and die due to the sin of Adam, not due to our own sin. Charles Manson, Jack the ripper, Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, Ariel Sharon, Pol Pot, Robert Mugabe, and all of the other lying and murdering sons of Adam have not broken God's law, because they were none of them under God's law. It is even possible, if they truly have obeyed their consciences, that they may be resurrected into the Kingdom of God - this is a matter for God, not for man. For only the true people of God are under God's law, and these one's do not suffer the penalty of physical death today for breaking it. On the contrary they suffer expulsion from God's true people. So there is no man who by his own works, be they exemplary or not quite so exemplary, can either condemn himself or save himself. We have all died due to Adam, independent of our works. But at the end the situation is quite different. If one obeys one's conscience, if one loves God or, and we say or, if one loves the true people of God (without joining them), or if one joins the true people of God, then one may be saved by this integrity or by this love or by this faith respectively. Yes, those ones will not die at all:

14 For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law are a law to themselves.
