    What do you believe is the penalty for sin?

    Did God tell Adam that if he sinned he would live forever?
    The wages of sin is death.....but the gift of God is eternal life...through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    It's pretty simple, isn't it? Why the need of speculation?

    For the next question. Does death free a person from their sins?

    This is very simple, but seems to confuse many people.

    No, many will die in their sins and will go into the judgment in their sins and be condemned.

    He said, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8:2)

    The Spirit's law freed him from a another law.

    Wrong.

    "For he who has died has been freed from sin." (Romans 6:7)

    So, you are going to trust in that? "It is appointed unto man to die and after that the judgement" Hebrews 9:27.

    Everyone except Jesus has sinned. The penalty given for sin is death. Once the penalty is paid it's gone.

    They die in their sins. That's why they must receive the gift of God which is eternal life (before they die in their sins).

    This is an example of why it's important to know the difference between physical death, death to sin, and spiritual death. You just can't seem to get any of these verses to agree, can you?

    Now you have to understand the difference between laws. You just changed the law of the Spirit of LIFE in Christ Jesus to the "Spirit's law". That isn't the way to get to the bottom of these matters, Jamie.

    Strawman. Come back when you want to address the point about not being under the law. Lawless refers to actions, not a state of being.

    Are you saying the law of the Spirit is not the Spirit's law?

    Yes, Jesus lived by the law of the Spirit. The Spirit is our Father.

    The Father expects us to conform to his law.

    Well, you can certainly think whatever you like, but you'll have to do some serious scripture twisting to make it work out for you. As you've clearly done already here in this thread.
