Living by flesh causes death (Ro 8:13)

Sin leads to death (1 John 5:16)

"By a man came death" (1Co 15:21). Death is firstly interpreted as physical death. "Enoch was taken up s that he would not see death" (Heb 11:5). "It is appointed for men to die once" (9:27). Sin contributes to the inevitable. It is "cause and effect" because it's a "law of sin and of death" (Ro 8:2). There is a direct relationship between how you live and it's consequences:

  1. "If you are living according to the flesh, you must die" (Ro 8:13).
  2. "The outcome of those things is death" (6:21) since there "is a sin leading to death" (1Jo 5:16).
  3. "While we were in the flesh, the sinful passions . . . were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death" (Ro 7:5).
  4. "With my flesh [I serve] the law of sin" (7:25) "resulting in death" (6:16).
  5. "The mind set on the flesh is death" (8:6).
