    Interpreting Romans 6:7 as literal instead of figurative, makes Adamic death equal to Christ's ransom, thus negating his death.

    Devil's Advocate:

    How is reconciliation with God made possible?

    By having a clean standing due to one's sins being wiped out. Adamic death wipes out sins , therefore Adamic death is the means by which reconciliation with God is made possible!! Corrupt reasoning folks - do some research in the Scriptures, NOT the literature!

    Without the Literature to guide we'd be lost, you were talking about the new Sports Illustrated edition weren't you.

    There 's a great breakdown on this passage/verse in Romans here:

    The passage says nothing about guilt for sin being blotted out at death. What it says is that bondage to sin ends at death. There is an extended metaphor throughout the chapter of sin personified as a slaveholder. People only attain freedom from sin through death; just as a literal slave receives manumission through saving the wages paid by the slaveholder. Death absolves one's responsibility to sin. That's entirely different from absolving one's responsibility to God for one's deeds. Paul's point is that Christ affords the believer the chance to attain freedom from sin without having to literally die; participating in Christ's death absolves one's debt vicariously. In essence, Christians change slaveholders. Having purchased their freedom, God becomes the new slaveholder; Christians become slaves of God. And since the Law pertains only to those held in bondage by sin, Christians are not indebted to the Law either.
