It's right there in verse 12 12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned

According to Romans 5, is death caused by individual sin, or Adam's sin? Why Humans Die? Because of Adam's sin Adam and Eve had the wonderful opportunity to live forever and could have been alive today. Sadly however they chose to disobey God and thus sinned and died, Adam and Eve’s sin affected both them and us, they were no longer perfect; when they ...

Although this question already has an accepted answer, I submit this as food for thought. Let’s understand this passage. The first thing to keep in mind is the Biblical definition of death. Death means separation. GEN 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely ...

The answer is actually both; as evidence I quote two sets of texts: A: Sin is a state of being, ie, a NOUN, ie, we are sinful and have sinful tendencies Rom 5:15 - But so also the gift is not like the trespass [= noun]. For if by the trespass of the one, the many died, how much more did the grace of God and the gift in grace, which is of the one man Jesus ...

The context reveals the answer. Paul is writing to the church in Rome, aka, the brethren. Those believers who get baptised in the name of Jesus, then share in his victory over sin - partly in this life, fully in the next when we are born again. What shall we say then? Are we (the brethren) to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2May it never be! How ...

I John 2:2 reads (without the italics of the KJV) And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for of the whole world. και αυτος ιλασμος εστιν περι των αμαρτιων ημων ου περι των ημετερων δε μονον αλλα και περι ολου του κοσμου The wording 'the sins of' (the whole world) is not in the original Greek text. I am referring to the TR,...

The Greek word ἔχωm, echo, Strong 2192, means simply 'to have' and is thus translated on six hundred and seven, out of about six hundred and thirty, occasions of its use in the KJV, according to Robert Young. The Greek word here used, κατέχω, katecho, (kata + echo), Strong 2722, occurs nineteen times in the KJV and is variously translated but always in the ...

To understand how man suppresses the truth, you need to understand how the ‘truth’ is being revealed. That is, where this ‘sense’ of Gods wrath is originating. The verse initially says ‘revealed from heaven’, but reading on both answers and explains the ‘source’ of this sense of wrath, and the ‘source’ of this ‘truth’. - although it’s easily missed. ROMANS 1:...

When there is not yet an establishment of streetlights and rules on the city streets, the traffic being not regulated by red-yellow-green lights, you cross street and are stricken by a passing car and get injured. In this instance your injury and pain will not be exacerbated by anything else. However, when streetlights and rules are introduced and you ...

In Romans 11:25 what is “the fullness of the Gentiles”? “The fullness of the Gentiles”. or until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. (NET Bible) The NIV, NRSVCE and HCSB give a similar rendering of the verse as the NET Bible, which reads; Romans 11:25 NET 25 For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters,[a] so that you ...

See: Richard David Thompson: 'Israel and the Messiah Unveiled'. He deals with Romans 11v25 on page 318, and teaches that the Greek word for fullness here ('pleroma') deals with a full maturity rather than a full number (although the two may be linked). Thus as Christ's Gentile church grows into a full maturity, in these last days of the End Times, it will ...

You need to be clear in your understanding of ‘transgression’. Transgression requires a Law. So, to ‘judge’ someone, you first need Law, and then to prove that there has been a transgression. So ‘sin’ has always been, since Adam. ROMANS 5:13 For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. But, without [a written] Law, you ...

Let us be very clear here - Paul in Rom 2:14-15 is discussing the "Law", namely the Torah given to the Jews more than 3000 years earlier. It is obvious that non-Jews were (generally speaking) ignorant of stipulations of the Torah containing the Israelite covenant. The passage in Rom 2:14, 15 is significant for other reasons - it says that non-Jews ...

The Apostle Paul summarizes this best when he says in 2 Cor 6:14, 15, 16 - Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can ...

You have some quotes from Genesis chapter 2. But if you go back one more chapter, you have a ‘key’ aspect of your answer.... GEN 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. So they (male and female) were already ‘spiritually’ one. Genesis chapter 2 talks about man (male and female) receiving ...

Paul claims physical marriage is not intended by God in [Romans 8:6-8]. Paul makes no such claim. Romans 8:5 New International Version Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. We have a flesh body. That's ...

This peace was announced by the angel to the shepherds when Jesus was born. Luke 2:11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and ...

In Aristotelian terms peace is per definition that for the reason of which wars are waged. Thus, peace is causa finalis, or final cause of war. Now, the peace that a Christian will gain in God is the outcome of his war against the reign of sin and Satan, who acts in and through the sin and foments it. When a Christian fights against sin and Satan through the ...

This peace is the reconciliation with God that we can have because of Christ's propitiatory work for us. Paul goes on to say in this chapter: Romans 5:6-11: You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to ...

Peace / Shalom (שָׁלֽוֹם) is living in Compliance with unchanging moral principles (Torah, תוֹרָה).

Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” By fulfilling the ...

It's quite clear that Paul - talking to those in Rome, the church, the believers. those who are in Christ Jesus v1 so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us v4 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you v9 So then, brethren v12 fellow heirs with Christ v17 revealing of the sons of ...

For from him and through him and to him are all things. Because Jesus was slain from the foundation of the world - in God's plan, which already included the cleansing of (a corrupted) created humanity through the son that was to come and bring in a new covenant of life and spirit to replace that of sin and death. 1 Corinthians 15:45 The first man Adam ...

Paul uses three significant Greek prepositions here: ἐξ (ex) meaning "out of" or "from" διά (dia) meaning (with the genitive as here) "by the instrumentality of" εἰς (eis) meaning "into" or "unto" Ellicott sums up the force of the meaning here: (36) Of him, and through him, and to him.—All things proceed ...

Your "thoughts" as you describe them are pretty far and afield, hermeneutically. A literal interpretation of the word through is not the way to go. Through is a preposition that can be used literally or figuratively. Literally, the word denotes a piercing or a penetration, as you observed in your "thought" number one. Figuratively, the ...
