Discussion for Romans 6:7

  • Michael Eken Henshaw on Romans 6:7
    In modern English ... ".The wages sin pay is death " Whish means that there is nothing else to paid as regards one sin again . That completely negates the false doctrine of eternal fire of he 'll which simply means "the grave ". Adam Eve were told.. " dust you are and to dust you shall return for their sin. The God of live does not punish mankind in a fiery burning furnace for eternity.

    The good news of the Gospel is that God so loved the world that he sent his one and only son for whosoever believe would not perish, but would have eternal life (John 3:16). We are called to have faith (believe) that our savior, Jesus Christ, came to take on all the punishment of our sin and drank the whole cup of the wrath of God and was crucified in our place, was separated from God, so that we would not have to be. He died an undeserving death (for he was perfect so the grave could not hold him), so that we wouldn't have to die an eternal death separated from God. We can only be justified (cleansed) by faith alone through Christ alone. Salvation is a gift from a loving God.
  • Sophia Acha - in Reply on Romans 6:7
    In regards to "dust you are and to dust you shall return, (Gen 3:19)" the Bible is talking about physical death. It isn't referencing spiritual death. We can see through passages like Psalm 30:3, Psalm 55:15, or even more direct verses like Revelation 21:8, Mathew 25:46, 2 Thessalonians 1:9, that there is a spiritual second death where people are sent down to the realm of the dead. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23), the gospel news is that sin was defeated through the death of Christ on the cross which reconciles that he both a loving God, and a HOLY God. If the sin's punishment (eternal separation from God) did not exist, then God could not be called Holy.
