Lately, we have seen in the news and mostly online that there are many credible doctors that have expressed concern with the fact that they are being encouraged by CDC guidelines to label their patient’s deaths as Covid 19 deaths just because of the virus was present when the person died. When this happens these doctors have shown that they are encouraged to label the death as “died of covid” when they really only died with covid. That it was present even though not in sufficient quantity to kill them. But, dying with covid does not mean that they died of covid and these doctors know this. It simply means the virus was present when they died. And there has been much controversy over this labeling from some doctors because they see that these are not the same. And because there is both a monetary and a political component that incentivizes doctors to label it as a covid death even when they know it was not. Because they know that even though the virus was present it was not in sufficient enough quantity to kill them so that it could not be the cause of their death.

But, what I want to show you now in this message is the parallel between what these have expressed about covid19, and what those who believe in sin nature and original sin falsely teach. Because those who teach sin nature and original sin have done as these doctors are being incentivized to do. Because they have understood the Bible to mean that because sin was present in the world, and all men die, the cause of death for mankind since Adam must be sin. Making them pervert what Paul taught about the wages of sin is death. But, is this what the Bible really says? No, no, thousand times no!! And if you are thinking right now that what Paul taught in Rom.6:23 is proof that sin caused death in Adam and all mankind you show that your understanding does not come from what the Bible teaches. And have fallen into the trap of satan. Because in Rom.6:23 Paul is not telling us that sin(bad behavior) brings death in the New Covenant. He is contrasting the Old Covenant principle that “the soul that sinneth it shall die” with the promise of God in the New Covenant that “the gift of God is eternal life”. So Rom.6:23 has nothing to do with what happened in the garden. It only deals with Israel’s need since the law was given through Moses to be delivered from the law so they could have eternal life by faith in Jesus.
And the proof of sin not being what killed Adam is right there in the Genesis account for any to see who really want to know the truth. But, it continues to be taught that because sin(naughty behavior) is present, as the CDC guidelines are telling these doctors to say about their patients who die, they died from sin as punishment for their naughty behavior.
Why? What incentive if any is there that encourages those who spread these lies to do so? Well, for one they have establishment religion since the days of Augustine supporting them and praising their statements. So they have the praise of men. And 2, they have the establishment religious world making sure that they are financially rewarded for it by teaching these lies to prospective “pastors” in their seminaries. And 3, some are simply deceived because they have been too lazy to search the scriptures for the truth for themselves. And so they depend on the so called “scholarship” of others to do that for them. Much like their establishment medical counterparts. And 4, they gain a certain amount of control over people when they teach them that their behavior has anything to do with death’s reign over them. Just as these doctors have forced a behavioral change on people so they will not die from covid. They can coerce people to do things they otherwise would not by threatening them with eternal death if they don’t stop. And this power is a form of aphrodisiac for these who teach behavior has any bearing on why death reigns. When nothing could be further from the truth.
But, we are not going to do as these have. Because we who love the truth will search it out in the scriptures and be rewarded with treasures in heaven where moth and rust can not corrupt. And when we do we will see in Genesis and elsewhere that sin is not the cause of death. But, that it is in fact precisely the other way around. To start we will look at what the Bible says God actually said to Adam about eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
“And the Lord God instructed the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.” Now in reading and seeing this for ourselves can you see anything in these instructions that tells Adam he will die from or ofeating the fruit? That eating the fruit will kill him? And after being taught for who knows how many years that this is what happened have you ever even thought to ask this question? Because if you had you would never have believed that God told Adam he would die from or of eating the fruit. Or that his death was the direct result of his disobedience(sin) in eating the fruit.
Because what we see here is only that God instructed Adam that he would die on the same day that he eats from this fruit. But, clearly this does not mean that he would die from or of eating the fruit. As if intrinsic to the fruit itself was some poisonous aspect that killed Adam. And Paul brings this to even a finer point when he teaches in Rom.5:12-14 that Adam’s sin was not imputed to him or anyone else. Saying “For until the law sin was in the world but sins is not imputed when there is no law”. Making it impossible that sin is or was what anyone dies from.
Returning to the Genesis account we can see clearly what that cause was when God says that it was because men no longer have access to the tree of life that men die. Here God says “The man has become as one of us to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life” in Gen.3:22-24.
So it is here in these verses that we see that what actually made men begin to die was a man’s not being able to eat from the tree of life. And we also see what caused God to do what He did that insured man would die just as He said the man would. But, what we also see here is that the reason God did this has nothing to do with imputation or inheritance of sin as so many falsely teach. On the contrary the reason God said He did this was that “the man has become as one of us to know good and evil”.
So it was not the eating of the fruit or his disobedience that Adam died from. The Bible says he died from not having access any longer to the tree of life. And that the reason he no longer had any access to the tree of life was because he had “become as one of us to know good and evil”. So the death that Paul says “passed to all men” did so because men can not eat from the tree of life. Which according to Paul is what causes sin. And not the other way around. So it was not because Adam’s sin was counted against or imputed to them, as so many who have many and various incentives to do so falsely teach.
Does it really matter what Adam died from? Is it really that important that we get this right? It really is because when we believe that God punishes people for another person’s behavior that we had no control over and had no participation in we perceive God to be just as one of the false gods who take pleasure in torturing mankind. False gods like Molech who required the bloody and torturous death of the innocent for the appeasement of his wrath. But, the truth is that God is nothing at all like the false gods. He is loving and compassionate. Full of grace and goodness. Longsuffering in His dealings with mankind as He desires that none should perish. But, that all men would come to a saving faith in Jesus for eternal life. Leading mankind to repentance by His goodness and not imputing trespasses to us.
This is the truth about the God who made us. Truth that calls out to every man so that he may know Him. Because when we know Him we will be born of His Spirit and therefore made to be the being God intended us to be from before the world was made. Will you believe His truth? The truth of the Bible? Will you believe as the Bible plainly says that the death that came to all men has nothing to do with behavior? But, is instead part of God’s plan to make a spiritual being with free will who then can choose by that free will to love as He does? If you will believe the truth you will be delivered from the idols that have spread the lies of the sin nature and original sin doctrines that control and coerce you to remain in darkness. Unable to see the light that God has made available to you. Light that is truth that can make you see clearly who God really is, who Jesus really is, and what the atonement was really for. And that all that God ever does or will do is because He loves with an infinite love. So that you can be a child of God by receiving His gift of love instead of simply exchanging one idol for another as all the cults do as they are deceived by the false doctrines of sin nature and original sin.
If you are reading this God is calling you. He wants you to be delivered from the lies of satan into His glorious truth. He loves you and wants you to know Him. Because knowing Him is this eternal life that provides you with the spirit that makes you God’s child.John17:3. Because while all men are created by God, not all men are born of His Spirit so that they are children of God. It is only those who have come to know Him that are spiritual because knowing Him is to be born of His Spirit. So if you do not know Him, but have now believed that He is Lord and that He has raised from the dead to conquer death for you, then please take the time right now to talk to Him and confess to Jesus that He is Lord of your life. And believe that He has raised from the dead to conquer death for you. If you do believe in Him then tell Him something like this and you will have eternal life:
Dear Jesus, I believe you. Thank you for joining with me in death so that by conquering death by your resurrection I could join with you in eternal life. Thank you that you raised from the dead so that I could raise from the dead too by trusting in, clinging to, and relying solely on you. Thank you for giving me a new spirit now Lord so that I can live with you in your kingdom forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
By praying a prayer similar to this one and really meaning it from your heart you have been saved from death to life. From sin to righteousness. And from wrath to peace with God. And now as you begin reading the Bible and believing what it plainly says it will begin to change the way you think and believe. Because when you trust in Jesus you leave the old life behind where you were only able to relate to and trust in what has been made. And now will be equipped for God’s kingdom because you are no longer only natural flesh and blood, but are a new creature made a spiritual being ready to inherit God’s spiritual kingdom. It is because of Jesus’ resurrection that He is the only WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. Because only Jesus has broken through the wall of death that the flesh and blood natural body can never get through. And only by the new birth are we made ready to receive the spiritual body that can go through the wall of death as Jesus’ did first so we could follow Him in the way He has prepared for us.
God Bless you in your new life in Christ.
