Death is in the World Because of Sin

Why do bad things happen? Because, sin is in the world. Because of sin, which came into the world through the serpent who tempted Eve causing both Adam and Eve to disobey God, causing them to become corrupt and to fall from their perfect state of being, death is inevitable. Exactly! Because of original sin 'corruption', death is inevitable. Praise the Lord that Jesus Christ came to earth (into this world) to show us that death of the flesh is overcome by the born again resurrected spirit.

"...We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the first born among many brothers. And those He predestined, He also called, those He called, He also justified, those he justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justified... Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall trouble hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long, we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers neither height nor depth nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8: 28-39

* "For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And, I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die. For t me, living means living for Christ and dying is even better." Philippians 1:20
