Online Bible Verses about Eternal Life - 1 Corinthians 15: 20-22
For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
1 Corinthians 15: 20-22
The perfect balance of creation became corrupt when Adam chose to be his own boss. I cannot blame Adam, or Eve, really, as I am certain the first poor choice would have been made by myself as well if placed in their shoes. The point to be made, a fallen world resulted. And as a result of sin, both original and coming from within ourselves at present, we see unfortunate consequences. The ultimate consequence being spiritual and eternal death. A horrific prospect if the Gospel is true and accurate. However, keeping in mind that Gospel means “good news”, surely there must be more to it. And, thankfully, there is. God foreknew what free will would entail, and provides a clear path to eternal life via His Son. A path to salvation, one which allows us an avenue through which to completely avoid death in the spiritual sense. For now, physical death is a reality; but the second death spoken of in scripture need not happen. In coming to an understanding and hopeful acceptance of who He is, we can start a new life which will not end.
