DO NOT BLAME ADAM FOR THE SECOND DEATH by steve finnell
Do not blame Adam for your second death. Your unforgiven sin will be responsible for your second death, not Adam's sin.
Revelation 2O:14-15 Then death and hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.(NASB)
Jeremiah 31:30 But everyone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge.(NASB)
Men will die the second death because of their own iniquity, not Adam's.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as though one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, and so spread to all men, because all sinned---(NASB)
Death spread to all men, because all sinned. Adam does not cause men to sin, nor are men guilty of Adam's sin.
Proverbs 11:19 He who is steadfast in righteousness will attain life, And he pursues evil will bring about his own death. (NASB)
Being born is not pursuing evil. The guilt of original sin is a man-made doctrine.
Romans 1:32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.(NASB)
Sin is practiced. Sin is not inherited. The second death is for those who never stop practicing. A non repentant sinful lifestyle brings death, not Adam's sin.
Deuteronomy 24:16 "Fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor shall the sons be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sin.(NASB)
The second death is only punishment for a person's own sins. No one will suffer the second death because of Adam's sin.
Romans 8:13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.(NASB)
Your lifestyle may produce death. Adam's lifestyle has nothing to do with the second death you may endure.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold all souls are Mine,; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.(NASB)
The person will die because he sins, not because Adam sinned.
James 1:14-15....by his own lust. 15 Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.(NASB)
Does Adam's lust and sin bring forth your death? No, man's own lust brings forth his sin and death.
Romans 6:16 Do you not know when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? (NASB)
Your own sin results in the second death. Men need to stop blaming Adam's sin. No one can repent of Adam's sin. Men are not guilty of Adam's sin.
Original sin is a false doctrine invented by men.
