Biblically, did God tell humanity that ultimate death is just for sinners (the sinless won’t stay dead)

“Yes, after all…
  • In Genesis, sin ↔ death

      In the book of Genesis, it is implied that Adam (and those after him) faced ultimate/permanent death if and only if they transgressed one or more of God's commandments (i.e. sinned).

      After all...
      • In Genesis, we read of Adam and Eve initially being created by God in a paradise—“the garden of Eden.” They were given an opportunity to sin, in disobeying God’s command to “not eat” of a particular fruit tree (for in doing so, they would intimately know sin/guilt), and Gen 2:17 — “in the day [Heb. “Yom”; i.e. time-period] that you eat from it you will surely die.”

  • OT prophets: "God will raise up the righteous"
  • Jesus: “death won’t hold the sinless, just sinners”
  • Biblically, it’s what God WOULD do
