1 For the ungodly said, reasoning with themselves, but not aright, Our life is short and tedious, and in the death of a man there is no remedy: neither was there any man known to have returned from the grave.
4 And our name shall be forgotten in time, and no man shall have our works in remembrance, and our life shall pass away as the trace of a cloud, and shall be dispersed as a mist, that is driven away with the beams of the sun, and overcome with the heat thereof.
12 Therefore let us lie in wait for the righteous; because he is not for our turn, and he is clean contrary to our doings: he upbraideth us with our offending the law, and objecteth to our infamy the transgressings of our education.

The redemptive power of God is the foundation of our faith. We may have missed the mark in the service of God due to carelessness but the equity of redemption in God's infinite love will redeem us.Hoever, to be entitled to this one must be remorseful and show genuine repentance. The light of Life cannot be overshadowed by the darkness of death.God is ever ready to redeem his people: Ezekiel 36

Of course man was made to be immortal. He was made in the image of his Father. But man missed the mark and fell into corruption. He fell so far he actually thought he could hide from God. And death passed upon all men. But even as in Adam all die, in Christ will all be made alive. Jesus has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light. There is much we have misunderstood. But the Holy Spirit will make the Living Word come alive in our hearts and minds.

This is my personal opinion on this thread; The spiritual man inside us has that chance to be immortal. When Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan, they in a way made him lord of mankind. When we are born, we are born into sin (earthly kingdom), so in reality we are born already dying. That is the reason Jesus tells us we are born again into his Kingdom. So No, the Bible does not contradict itself, it has to be read through spiritual eyes. Because without the Holy Spirit revealing what the Word of God means to us, it is just another history book.

Indeed, God did create Adam and Eve to be immortal, and at the moment they ate the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, they became mortal--began at that moment to die--and also were at that moment separated from God for the first time. Until then, they were in unity with God. Mortality was the greatest gift God could give to His fallen creatures, for without it, salvation would be impossible, for how could Christ die in our place if we couldn't die? In addition, without the gift of mortality, all the evil men who ever lived would be living still today, growing in evil. It is for these reasons that they were cast out of the garden. If they had stayed, and eaten of the tree of life, they would live forever in their sins. So God set an angel to guard the way to the tree of life, so that no man might eat of it until His plan of redemption was complete. See Genesis 3:22 and Rev. 22:14.

Maybe God's original design for humans was to be immortal- Adam and Eve were until they disobeyed God by eating of the fruit- and for that they will 'surely die', which they later did, so they at that point of eating the fruit switched from being immortal to mortal (capable of dying). But if they didn't eat of it, they probably would have stayed immortal forever.
