Laws of Life had been established from God’s first interaction with earthen things. But mankind opposed God’s first establishment and set off to pursue independent designs. Laws of Death were set into motion as humanity began to move around God’s original boundaries of preservation. We would no longer obey the rules that governed Life. We would become fully occupied with the preservation of self rather than preserving the sanctity of creation through God’s good perspective and wisdom.
“For if many died through one man’s trespass…” Romans 5:15. “For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation,” Romans 5:16. “If because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man…” Romans 5:17. “For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners…” Romans 5:19.
Since God’s Laws of Life would no longer inhabit the human heart, death was given the upper hand. We began dying from the moment our conscience was not covered with the Everlasting Life of our Divine Creator. Although His Laws of Life still operated in the earthen atmosphere, they did not govern the human conscience. We were separated from Divine Life. The generations to follow Adam inherited this dying disposition…
Our human weakness minus the power of Divine Life equals a fading and failing existence. As we fade and fail, we are diminished in our mentalities to the animalistic pursuit of survival. We must preserve our self nature from the judgments that threaten our existance. The choices of God and the choices of man would pose an enemy to our survival. So death reigns over the human conscience because we must manipulate and kill to survive. This is the full and final consequence of our rebellious independence. We become sinners because we inherit from our lineage the degrading task of carving an existence out of the dying souls around us.
